PHX calls and offers #10 and #40 for #6 and #67.
Would you guys go for that?
Means PHX DEFINITELY goes F at #6 and you've only got to wait for #7, #8, and #9 to pick before you can take your D at #10. Good chance only one D goes in that span if Nichushkin and Shinkaruk go in those three picks. This would give Philly potentially their 3rd ranked D and TWO picks in the first ten selections in the 2nd round (their own and Phoenix's).
Close to fair?
Make it the #10 and Gormley for #6 and #67 and I think it's something the Flyers would seriously consider.
As for Gormley's injuries, one was a knee, one was his foot and the other was his neck. Nothing with regards to concussions and he's developing very nicely down in Portland. He's the youngest regular defenseman on the roster (just turned 21 in February) and is playing big minutes. Add him to the number 10 pick and the Flyers have helped revamp the defense pipeline. If the Flyers don't end up with Nurse, then the consolation prizes of Ristolainen or Zadorov are not very bad consolation prizes at all.
