That's another quality prospect down the tube at a position where we cannot afford to lose anymore prospects.

We were going with a forward early in the draft this year anyway. Looks like there will be a lot of pressure to get someone really good now.
It's never good to lose a solid prospect, but forward isn't a pressing need for the Flyers organization. Richards, Carter, Giroux, and JVR are all top forwards under 26 years old, plus Nodl seems to be making strides as a solid top nine winger. So even though I agree the Flyers should go forward with their first pick, they'll survive even if that picks turns into the next Alexandre Daigle.
