Heck, I would keep the four and move Coburn for a young player or decent pick or picks if need be. By moving assets and future high picks also ties your hands up down the road when you are one player away from being a cup contender and want to make a move. I hope the Flyers are on the right track this time and make the smart play by adding young talent and making the smart moves vs the big splash. Homer started something in 2011 and he needs to stay the course.
yup, I really think that this would be a perfect year to start building thru the draft. i realize that likely puts Couturier as the major asset to land a young PMD tho. I am not ready to give up on Couturier but if he lands us the right guy then i would consider it.
The thing is the Flyers have a very, very impatient owner and I am frightened to think what he could do this offseason.
