If they choose forward in the 1st round, I would be fine with it as long as they choose at least 4 defensemen after with Samuel Morin in the 2nd being one of them. If you look at Nashville's history of dmen picks above the best one came in the 2nd round, and was the 3rd defensemen they chose that year. You can get great defensemen in the 2nd round. The Flyers could too if they ever chose in that round.
I believe Button is an outlier on Ristolainen. Most have him in the top 10, right behind Nurse, and a step above Zadorov, Pulock, Morrissey, etc.
