A lot of you are assuming that just because we are picking later it automatically means that we're getting a worse player. Go look back at previous drafts from 10-15 years ago and look at how many of those players developed into what they were expected to. Look at teams like the Panthers who have been drafting in the top 10 for what seems like ages now. Are they closer to being a playoff team? Flyers have been very good at finding talent with later picks, and ignoring the consensus rankings provided by the draft "experts." Gagne, Richards and Giroux are great examples of this. The Flyers won 6 of their last 7, and they will carry that confidence into next season. Quit acting like Darnell Nurse is guaranteed to be the next Chris Pronger.
