There is no way to tell as he most likely would have gone the USHL route instead of the NCAA, look at Girgensons he was a 14th pick and I believe Janko would have out produced him. It isn't impossible to see Janko raising into the top 10 if he goes the USHL route as most players that enter the nhl draft are not in the NCAA.

If you look at Matthew Nieto he went in the 2nd round as a 19 year old after putting up 23 points in 39 games if he was a year younger and the small size he could have easily risen.

Its all alot of argument over nothing through as we will never know, of course there is a chance he never graces the nhl but that is true for all players the real boom or bust part of Janko isn't will he make the nhl it is where will he fit. He is large enough to be an effective 4th liner it depends on how is skills translate to pro hockey.
