I think though with a North American like Murray Flyers fans would have the patience and from what I've heard of Murray he's pretty much ready for prime time. Also, he will be a cheaper option cap wise although he will still have to be compensated fairly well as a high pick.

It sounds to me like the Flyers want to get another scorer like Nash and then draft an NHL ready D man like Murray. It's not such a bad plan IMO..
he may end up having a cap hit close to Schenn with bonuses ect. near 3 million.
I still think the Flyers could move up to #2 and draft a kid like Murray, but I would think if they want a high end forward they go after Parise instead IMO.
Unless Holmgren thinks he has the inside track on Justin Schultz instead of trading assets to move up to 2.
