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. For his part, Jankowski seems unphased. Speaking with the media during development camp, he spoke about expectations for his Providence College Friars club and the 12-man freshman class he joined the team with in 2012-13 (including fellow Flames picks Jon Gillies and John Gilmour) - they'd love to win a championship before they finish their collegiate careers.

A year ago, the Calgary Flames selected winger Tim Harrison late in the 2013 NHL Draft.

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.

Pages have fallen off the calendar this summer and we're quietly in mid-July. As such, we're transitioning at FlamesNation from picking at the corpse of the 2013-14 Flames towards projecting what the 2014-15 Flames will be. Or do.
