The Flyers took a bum over him last draft. He came into rookie camp and really showed some talent. I was fortunate enough to see him at the rookie game to see him skate in person. He could turn out to be a bust just like any other young player, but he's certainly no "joke."
This statement annoys me ... there were 29 other teams who didn't draft him, and there were 210 other bums who were selected instead of him. The Flyers weren't able to sign him because the CBA somehow still makes a difference between European and North American players, thats the whole story.
