I'd love to see the Flyers grow Ristolainen into a future #1 defender and I think that he has the ability to do that.
However, I see Holmgren moving for a potential #1 off of another team right now such as a Shattenkirk or Pietrangelo. That is going to cost Couturier or Laughton plus Coburn going the other way. If that happens, it will affect how the Flyers draft. Maybe a forward after all.
