This is a good draft for defensemen (and, to a lesser extent, centers), and that is an area in which we need help. We could use at least one big bruiser-type prospect, and multiple offensive d-men. Scoring winger is also a need, and I am pretty sure we will take a goaltender in the later rounds, as we have declined to sign a few that were languishing in our system.
At the top of the draft, the Flyers shy away from boom-or-bust guys like Frolik, and they don't like to go to Czechs either. Bad experiences with Hlavac, Dopita and Brendl speak to that.
