Jones, Nurse, and MacKinnon would look great in Black and Orange. But if we are picking in the 15 to 20 range(which I doubt), I like Pulock and of course another young man who fits the Flyer mold is......
Now only if we can get Danny boy to do the right thing and waive his clause in order to help the team out. Danny, just pretend you are back in Germany
We would have to wait until his KHL deal ran out (assuming he doesn't sign an extension during that time period). There's an agreement in place now with NHL and KHL honoring existing contracts between the two leagues.
Nichushkin could fall out the top 10 because of that.
