I doubt the Flyers will be picking in the top 5 unless there are some serious injuries. I think Calgary, Columbus, Florida and the Islanders will definitely be worst, with Washington, Buffalo, Colorado, and Winnepeg probably in there too. So unless of a miracle lottery win (do it for the league Gary!), the Flyers would be picking 9 to 14 if they miss the playoffs. If Nich is available there, absolutely pick him, but I think he would be gone. At those picks, I would like any of Nurse, Pulock,or Ristolainen.
I like Pulock and nurse, but I'm not entirely sold on ristolainen. I think he can be good but if we draft there, and Pulock and nurse are both gone, I'd seriously consider picking anthony mantha if he's on the board.

Also, is pulocks name pronounced PULL-OCK or PYEW-LOCK?
