I think Nurse will be the pick, as well. At least I think he should be. Just makes so much sense from multiple angles, especially a need standpoint, and he plays that sandpaper style you KNOW the Flyers love. Also, our scouts and player personnel execs have to be intimately familiar with Nurse's game since he's Nick Cousins' teammate, so they've watched him plenty over the past two seasons and seen his game develop. A 6'4" kid who's advanced defensively, can skate like the wind, displays a nasty on-ice disposition AND has now shown significant offensive potential... I mean, all the tools are there, and then consider he's still likely to add another 20+ pounds. Sorry, I have to clean up the drool off my keyboard.
