Flames - Meet hindsight.


Registered Member
A couple of years ago in the draft under the intelligent ruling of Jay Feaster, the Calgary Flames traded their first round draft pick to drop down lower in the draft to draft Jankowski. Jankowski was at the time a 2nd round pick (43rd) Flames drafted him in the first (21st).

Here are the guys drafted with the Flames pick they traded and the picks after that up to Jankowski.

When Calgary dropped picks to get Jankowski: They missed on Girgensons (Buffalo - Pick Calgary traded), Wilson (Capitals), Hertl (Sharks), Teravainen (Blackhawks), Ceci (Senators), Scott Laughton (Flyers), Andrei Vasilevski (Lightning) and Maata (Penguins - He was picked AFTER Jankowski).

Hindsight can be a bitch... I was shocked it took so long to fire Feaster.

Datsyuk went undrafted in the 1996 and 1997 drafts. Then he didn't get selected till the 171 pick in 1998. It happens all the time. Teams will skips on good talent - every year.

That is true... but Jankowski was ranked 43rd, not on anyone's radar and they traded DOWN to draft him. Crazy... crazy... crazy...
