Reviewing the Calgary Flames 2012 Draft Class (THW)
THW's Ryan Pike break down the draft from the FLames perspective:
"The Calgary Flames entered the 2012 NHL Draft with six draft picks. They left Consol Energy Center on Saturday evening with seven new players and most likely a bit of satisfaction in how they pulled the weekend off."
I can think of teams that did better, a lot better. At this point of time, Calgary is in the middle of the pack, however, if a single thing slips up will find themselves bottom dwellers at the draft as always.
Last year was a top 5 at the draft year. Let's give it at least a year until we start ranking where we were. Will 100% depend on if Janko actually can play in a higher league.
This is the first draft class I've solidly been on board with for like the last 10 seasons. When you factor in high-end potential guys like Jankowski and Gillies, 'safe' picks like Sieloff, and true darkhorse/sleeper pick like Gordon, I'd at least suspect that has to be Top 10 league-wide.
