Of course, the Flyers have no record of developing long-term defensemen for this team, but it seems he's held in pretty high regard.
He's still a really sluggish player comparitively, and though I'm not saying that there is no potential for his involvement in NHL competition, he's got hurdles to overcome, particularly in this system.
Not all of Bourdon, Gus, Manning, Gost, and Lauridsen are making the NHL in any significant way. That's just the reality of the situation. Lauridsen right now represents the bottom of that top 5 in my opinion.
Then again, Bourdon was also a sluggish player (still is a bit), and he's become much better over time. We'll see with Lauridsen.
