Bold Statement by Calgary GM on Jankowski

On TSN he said something like

"In 10 years when they look back on the 2012 draft, Jankowski will be seen as the best player"

Thoughts?

Personally, I think its great that someone is bold enough to pick against the grain.

I'm personally not a fan of the pick currently, but I hope Feaster ends up being right.

Sounds like something Craig Button would say.

Feaster also guaranteed a playoff spot last season

That said, this has the potential of being a big move, only time will tell.

I'm sure 10 years from now someone will dig a clip of Feaster saying that and make a thread on this website containing that clip and everyone will be laughing.

I actually like the pick, but I wish Feaster would stay quiet. The only knock on Jankowski is that he plays in a crappier league.

Or confidence, but I guess people will spin this comment in the direction that fills their agenda.

Huge Flames homer strikes again.

Feaster's an idiot for taking this kid this high. He could've had him in the 2nd round in all likelihood, and used the 1st to select someone that would be NHL ready in half the time or less, but leave it to Calgary to screw up another 1st round pick. Outside of Bartschi, when was the last time that team did anything right with its 1st round pick?

Weisbrod said there were teams ready to pick him in the first round

I feel bad for Flames fans, and I guess Jankowski too.

Jay Feaster is not doing a very good job in Calgary. Just spinning the tires in the mud.

It's hard to feel bad for the Flames. I feel for their fans, though.

Like I said on the prospects board, it's amazing how quickly a player who was considered to be an intriguing prospect with good skills and a very good chance of being a steal can turn into a worthless piece of crap with no chance of playing in the NHL the instant he's drafted by the Calgary Flames.

People hate Feaster because he isn't a hockey guy and then people hate Feaster when he listens to his scouts who are hockey guys he can't win. Did you see Jankowski light up when Feaster said that the kid was pumped Feaster wasn't putting pressure on the kid but on himself.

Feaster is a beyond horrible gm, i think he spent too much time at the desert bar tonight. Drafts down so he can choose jankoski over Teuvo? Really?!

I said he hasn't done a very good job. for a guy who is so adamant about not rebuilding, where have the Flames gone?

Cool, you guys have Sven. I never said he was a bust either. So I'm not sure where you got that from, but good for you.

Jay Feaster is a jackass.


There are so many players that will be better than Jankowski.

Here's the thing. It's not that anyone thinks Jankowski is going to be a crappy player. It's that people think the Flames wasted a 1st rounder on him. I'm sure he could of been picked up in the 2nd round.

Put it this way. In 2004 the Colorado Avalanche had the 21st pick. Which they used on Wojtek Wolski. They later used their 2nd round pick 55th overall on Victor Oreskovich.

Imagine the Avs wasting that 1st round on Oreskovich( again, not a crappy player, just a player that could be had in the 2nd round) and skipping out on Wolski? That's the blunder with the Flames. Sure Jankowski has the potential to be a great player....but man.....He's going to have to be better than Girgenson( Buffalo's 14th overall ) career wise in order for this not to be a draft blunder.

Hopefully he and the Flames prove me wrong though, because the Battle of Alberta hasn't been the same lately, mostly because of us and our last place finishes.

Not if you believe the Flames' assistant GM, who said that two other teams wanted Jankowski in the first round. If that's the case, the Flames either had to pick him at 21 or not at all.

I bet you jakowski doesnt even make the NHL.

Jay stop giving out your 2nd round picks like candy, then you wont be so desperate to get it back at the draft. And the guy always runs his mouth and makes himself look like an idiot.
