I would temper your expectations a bit. Jankowski is a LONG term project like Gaudreau. To your first point, what prospects have we really developed? Sure the flames prospect pool is better now than it has been the last 15 years, but its still not one of the best and almost every team has a plethora of Jankowski's and Wotherspoons who may or may not ever play in the NHL.
Let the team develop some players before you start thinking all our picks are going to turn out.
But i agree, its what will keep us from drafting 1st, 1st, 1st, 7th.
