Yes, but if the consolation prizes are a shot at Barkov, Mackinnon and Drouin, it's certainly a good place to start, especially if they can target a team rich with defensemen who might be desperate enough to move up to draft one of them. What if Phoenix moves to Quebec and they want to make a big splash by bringing on someone like Mackinnon or Drouin? If they were to offer say their first round pick plus Gormley and someone else, then I can easily see the Flyers making that sort of move. They still get a first and they get a solid young defenseman to help rebuild the D around. This is a good year for moving down and acquiring additional assets.
