He has the potential to be a very good 2nd or 3rd line 2-way center in the NHL, plus a 1st, while it may be a later 1st is still a good package i think.

Tavares, Strome, Laughton at Center for you guys in the future could be an awesome set up for 3 great lines. But again, i completely understand not wanting to Give up on Nino without it being for an overpayment. i was just, evidently wrongfully, under the impression that maybe the Isles are concerned at Ninos future. Maybe that's a harsh conclusion to jump to after 1 season, but it's worth discussing in my mind.
I think laughton was a mistake for Philly, they reached, he's not a 1st round prospect IMO, Laughton +1st (22-28th) pick is not worth nino... Close.. But it's not enough. Flyers should have drafted Maatta
