I'm not sure what you mean bu "what's the deal", but I will try. Jankowski is a big center that skates very well, has great vision, passing ability and instincts. He has all the tools to be a top line center, he is just expected to take longer to develop.

What? 2010-11 had very little to do with the Senators turnaround. Zibanejad is the only player from the 2011 draft (or later) on the team and while he has been playing well he is hardly the reason the Senators turned it around.

The reason the Senators turned it around are:

1. Erik Karlsson - a mid 1st round pick that turned into one of the best defensemen in the NHL.
2. Craig Anderson - who was acquired in a trade for a prospect and a pick.

You need to lay of the kool-aid if you think that tanking in 2010-11 has anything to do with them turning it around.
