Nurse needs more time. If you bring him up now, without allowing him to develop a better offensive game, it defeats the purpose. He's just turn into a slightly meaner Coburn. THat's not a bad piece at all, but the with Schenn, Coburn, and Grossmann already on board, it is a bit redundant. If they take Nurse, I'll be disappointed if he isn't back in juniors next year. (But I don't think Nurse will fall).

Trading up is fine in theory, but there aren't many teams in the 6-8 range eager to move back. The Flyers aren't going to deal with Jersey (and vice-versa), and moving up one pick is a bit pointless.

I think Meszaros will be here, barring some bigger move for a high-salary defenseman. It is a waste of a buyout to use one on him, but you'd probably have to pay someone to take him given his recent injuries.
