Which is why no team would do it...

Even if you only assume a modest bounce-back next year, the Flyers should be in the playoffs--why deal a #1 overall for a mid- and late-1st?

When we were slated to pick 8th, most acknowledged that 8th + Couturier wouldn't be enough to pry jones away from whatever team ended up 1st. We'd need to add even more on top of the 11th overall pick.

Trading up to get Nurse is more realistic.
