Top Shelf Prospects: Philadelphia Flyers


Quote:

The Flyers prospect system is considered amongst the weakest in the NHL. While Laughton, Morin, and Hagg are good players, I donít see a true game changer here, and overall the depth just isnít there either. Two things have happened to get the Flyers system into the state its in. Firstly the team spent many years trading high draft picks, and prospects for immediate help for the NHL side. Secondly, when the Flyers have made trades to get younger, players like Brayden Schenn, and Sean Couturier have immediately gone to the NHL. The fact is that the Flyers are well stocked in young forwards with Claude Giroux leading a group that also includes Matt Read, Jakob Voracek, and Wayne Simmonds. The defence is a little weaker with Luke Schenn and Erik Gustaffson the only real young players on the squad and Gostisbehere and Brandon Manning in the system. While Anthony Stolarz if the Flyers main goaltending hope. With a young team the depth of the system isnít as big a concern as it might be if the Flyers were an aging squad. Still it will be important for Holmgren and company to replenish this group in upcoming drafts.

This has been said before, but who cares if our prospect pool isn't highly ranked. For starters, it's pretty underrated all things considered, but even that doesn't matter when our 25-and-under team would kick the **** out of most of the other NHL clubs.

How was it obvious he needed to be sent back? They healthy scratched him after his 5th game played because they couldn't decide. He played fine while here. It seemed like they really thought about keeping him.

Last word for Amy is Shut the F Up, you are an idiot.

Honestly, I think its pretty spot on. Yes, the prospect pool isn't the best but the writer points out the Flyers you g core and guys like Couturier and Schenn that would be "prospects" for other teams. They even go on to say the weak pool is t a concern because of the young core. You guys will flame anyone that is t slobbering all over the Flyers. For the most part this is all correct.

You believe that Morin and Haag are average prospects? Other teams would consider them blue chippers, but since the Flyers always need to have a ****** prospect pool people call them average. IF Morin hits his potential he can be considered one of the best players in the draft.

More people hate on our prospect pool than like it so your last sentence is false.

The Flyers top four prospects (Morin, Hagg, Laughton, Ghost) would be considered top prospects on most teams in the league. That's not a bad group of "top" prospects.

And the top 10 is rounded out by players who all have relatively strong chances of cracking the NHL in Cousins, Straka, McGinn, Akeson, and Alt.

That top 10 is as good as most in the league. It's not near the top by any means, but it's definitely average and certainly not "among the weakest" either.
