Not over the top three guys, and maybe not over Barkov, but over some of the others? I could see that.
Agreed, they could, after a long internal discussion of risk-benefit. And their fanbases, arguably, are a bit more patient. The pressure for the Flyers on grabbing a high-impact player this season, after an uncharacteristically disastrous result and with such a deep draft class, is too high to make a mistake that could be avoided by avoiding a player with question marks like Nichushkin (thanks for correcting my spelling).
