Do management think the crop of star players at the NHL level will still be going strong in 7-8 years? That's my problem with picks like Jankowski and Gaudreau. They may pan out, but not for a long time.
Because choosing safe picks for a number of years under Sutter did us nothing and we deserving got crapped on here for that. If Jank and Gaudreau pan out then it doesn't matter how long it takes because it would have been worth waiting for top line talent than taking a short cut.
