Honestly, who cares who they take in the 3rd round? Take the best player available.

The odds of a random 3rd round draft pick making any significant contributions at the NHL level are slim-to-nill at best.

If you doubt me, look at what round the majority of the current Flyers roster were picked in, the 1st. 2 of which were drafted #2 Overall (Prongs, JVR) and Hartnell was drafted #6.

1st Round Picks:
Pronger, Richards, Giroux, Carter, Coburn, Meszaros, Briere, Hartnell, JVR, Boucher, Boynton

2nd Round Picks:
Carle, Nodl

3rd Round Picks:
Bartulis

Other: Timonen (10th), Leino (undrafted), Powe (undrafted), Bobrovsky (undrafted), Shelley (undrafted), O'Donnell (6th), Lappy (7th), Versteeg (5th),

Having a poor system is a result of our "going all in" mentality. We are one of the top teams in the NHL, the draft is not a concern.
