I actually question whether other teams actually did want him in the first round.

Calgary didn't play their cards very well on this one. It was no secret that this was who the flames wanted.

When Maata, Tervainen (sp?) and samuellsen (sp?) were still on the board i imagine the same conversation that ottawa and TO had regarding kadri taking place with feaster and other teams. Especially since Calgary wanted to see how far they could trade down and still take him. "Hey, we're thinking of trading down but we want to make sure our guy is still there, is jankowski your guy?" 15-22 "Nope". After that, "Ummmmm...." *looks at sheet of paper and see's the above mentioned players still up for grabs. "Yeah, Jankowski's our guy."

Feaster then only trades down to the last known team who said they weren't interested in him. The other teams are then happy because that's one more team they don't have to worry about taking their player.

From the opposite perspective of trading up:

It was also no secret that the Oilers wanted Sameullsen (sp?). But they weren't sucessfull in trading up to get him as every team in the 24-30 range knew that's who the Oil wanted.
