Gaudreau has the size and consistency issues dogging him. Jankowski is all potential. The best prospects I see, and have the best chance to step in, are on the blueline, where the Flames are thin. Brodie, Seiloff, Wotherspoon, Ramage and Breen probably have the best potential to become long term Flames. Wish we had a few more forwards with size, skill and health on their side.
No one's saying we have what the Oilers, Isles, Sens etc., have. But we aren't too many years removed from having nobody. No one is a sure thing and our guys all carry some risks but considering that none of these guys were selected realllllly high, I think Feaster, Weisbrod and Co. have done an admirable job building the Flames prospect depth over the last 2-3 drafts.
