I do think that they should (and will) take the best player available. I wasn't suggesting that the pass on Barkov if he's there. That's a no brainer to me, even with my slightly-uninformed assumption about his ceiling.
It more comes down to someone like Nurse vs. Monahan or Shinkaruk.
Agree 100% on Nurse over those two. I would put him 5th behind Jones, Drouin, Mackinnon, and Barkov. Nichushkin would be ahead of him but I am a realist and doubt the Flyers would pick him due to his KHL contract at 5. Lindholm is intersting too at 5 but would probably still go with Nurse.
