Wouldn't have cared as much in the later rounds, but I just don't see how he fits this early into Bryz's contract. Even if he turns out to be very good, we'll have a very expensive backup or a valuable trade asset (which I think is a bad move to draft in the second round). But Homer knows his drafting so we'll see how this turns out. Maybe we wind up with Weber and someone sweet on the wing.
C'mo. He can develop as a backup and then the Flyers can trade him for a 2nd rounder.
