His point is, if the flyers are so great at drafting, then why did they not see these player's potential over who they picked That is the whole point of drafting. The teams with the better ability to draft pick players who have more potential and become better NHL players.
That's all hindsight. No one could know that some guy picked in a later round would turn out to be unbelievably great. Everyone knows that it takes a few years to develop. The Flyers draft the best players they can with the information they have at that time.
