....so one probable bust in the top 5 since 2007. i don't think our ability to develop a defenseman really applies in the case of Seth Jones.
Should have clarified, didn't really mean developing Jones, more guys like pulock and Zadorov (don't know much about the two and not sure if they are NHL ready). But I'd like there to be evidence that we CAN develop defense, rather there be no evidence.

As you stated, since the flyers haven't really drafted many d-men in the first round its hard to criticize them, but I guess i'm just weary that if we get some high potential guys in the 2nd or 3rd round, I don't know how much confidence I'd have in the flyers farm system grooming them.
