Probably the only 97's getting drafted from Flyers. They will have a few 96's drafted too. Joey Richard will probably get drafted as well as Ryan Chiasson. Richard could be a high draft pick if his work ethic got a little better. Probably the most skilled guy in the league with good size.
I know that a lot of people are high on Richard and I like him too but personally I would put Chaisson ahead of Richard, better skater, more physical and has good hands. Richard's numbers are better but that comes from playing on the first line with skilled linemates which doesn't hurt. Chaisson has put up similar numbers during the first part of the season essentially by himself. Chaisson is also a more rounded player serving equally on the PP as well as PK.
