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.
This isn't true the Coyotes tried to trade up with Calgary after they traded down but the Flames passed when the Coyotes said they wanted Janko
