I get what you're saying about the Flyers drafting a Lidstrom in the later rounds, but in 10 years, not one defenseman drafted has made it. 10 years. I don't buy that the Flyers are terrible at drafting defensemen. This is squarely on the development system that is in place and it's clear that for 10 years, something in the system has been wrong. The one common denominator? Kjell Samuelsson. He needs to go and they need to get someone in there who knows about developing defensemen. I'd be perfectly content if they moved Hatcher into that role or if they bring back Desjardins for that role. Whatever they do, Samuelsson needs to go.
Sound like a job for captain elbows
