All under 25, with playing experience or success in the NHL...
while all aren't top 6 players, it does go to depth. Colorado has been touted for their prospect pool,but they still haven't consistantly made the playoffs for awhile. Our players have developed, not every prospect will do the same. People here value prospects too highly (yes they are important, but not the holy grail). An established player generally has a higher value than a prospect.
you cant have developed players without(are you ready), drafting and developing players. Yes its not the be all end all. There are no gaurantees with anything. But the Flyers have tried a certian way for how long now? I think its time to start keeping draft picks and developing our own.
Unless you think its cool to deal 2nd and 1st round picks for rentals because hey we have a young core so its cool to give away draft picks.
