Giroux and Weber or Crosby and Malkin? The latter pair are each better than either of the former, but they've gotten a total of two picks 25+ in 7 years. (verify that number, I'm on my phone so working from memory) As I said, Philly should get a pick 25+ out of it, and maybe two, but more than that is beyond realistic. No matter how "real" those two are, NYR and PIT are still favorites over them in the east. The thing everyone seems to forget is all the losses this team has faced this year, and they haven't done anything to shore up goaltending, while their only d zone help came at a major top 6 forward cost when they've already lost two other top 6 forwards (assuming Weber costs them Vorachek).
