Did they skip drafting him because they thought he would be a free agent? Not likely since Mathers would've become a free agent as well.

The truth of the matter is probably that at the time of the draft, teams were likely unsure whether or not Hyka was really committed to the NHL. The Flyers would've been no different. Since bringing him in, they've changed their minds.

That said, I like Hyka. I'd like to see him become a prospect. That goal celebration was freaking awesome.

BUT, he's not some all-world kid. Let's not overhype another kid at camp.

Didn't some of you guys hype the crap out of Sinisalo's son just a bit ago?


On that note, please find some loophole to correct this situation Holmgren.
So in your mind they didn't draft him because they weren't sure he'd come over so they decided to lie and make themselves look like fools for choosing a kid with no shot to make it over him? Okay...

No one is hyping up Hyka to be anything. It's just crazy they have a prospect they like and botched it up so badly all because refuse to realize the 70's were 40 years ago.
