1. Got me thinking...

Earlier this week there was a bit of debate about whether Jonathan Toews was worth $10.5 million annually, when no other player in the league (besides Patrick Kane, but that's almost beside the point) makes more than about $9.5 million.

Remember Mark Jankowski?

The centerman was drafted by the Flames in the first round of the 2012 Draft, but both the general manager and assistant general manager that took him are gone from the organization now.

Nobody had ever heard of him and his introduction to Flames fans was at 2013's development camp, where he opened a lot of eyes with a bunch of hits. He went off to college and was an energy player (and a favourite of the coaching staff, based on how quickly he moved up the line-up card) for the Colgate University Raiders. In his freshman year, his team made it to the NCAA Tournament despite being a young squad with few established college stars.

I caught up with Harrison at Flames development camp at Winsport.
