Who'd he play with in the playoffs? Giroux?

Who'd he play with in the WJC? Schroeder and Wilson (two high profile speedsters).

Hell in his two years of high school he played with the first line.

Lets face it Flyers fans, Danny Briere does not look very good in even strength ice times this year lol, not sure what it is but #48 seems a step slow 5 on 5.

Put him on a line with Giroux, he puts up close to a point per game. His skill set does not match Briere and Simmonds.
So for a 2nd overall pick to perform up to expectations we just have to put him with arguably the best player in hockey right now. When a player is picked that high he's suppose to pick up the players around him and be able to dominate on his own, he doesn't need to have the best players in the world around him to play that good.
