I remember we already had Subban and Tinordi was picked the year before, and the smile on Trevor Timmins face when they called him up to make the announcement was very noteworthy.
And If you re-do that draft, Im pretty sure Beaulieu would get picked way earlier, Im not sure Flyers would pick Couturier over Beaulieu if they had another chance.. I saw a couple of Flyers games this year and Couturier's place should be in the AHL, I just dont like his game at all.. Flyers are seriously lacking quality blueliners, Im pretty sure they would rather have Beaulieu in their system..

Yep, agree, dont think they will callup Ellis..

Thrower has done nothing to be considered a serious NHL prospect this year, he will possibly start in the ECHL next year and will have ALOT to prove...
