He is probably the player Holmgren hoped Klotz would develop in.
I actually said that he was a replacement for Maroon a few pages back.

Maroon isn't even a bust so I don't know how you can say that.

I consider him a stronger prospect than Sestito to this day.

That said, I like the move to pick up Sestito, and it's not necessarily because the organization likes him better than Chaput. The Flyers probably feel that Sestito, being more NHL ready and the type of player that he is, brings more to the table now and in the future than a guy like Chaput, who definitely has his plus sides as well, but is a long way off and is at a position we don't necessarily need to stress for what will hopefully be the next decade.
