Don't think that's true. I have a book called "100 Things Flyers Fans Should Know and Do Before They Die" where it talks about that draft and how the Flyers were thinking of drafting him. He was very highly touted but back then it was really frowned upon to draft Europeans with such a high pick because of the fear that the competition was not as good and that they may not come to play.
