The pick obviously doesn't hold the value it looked like it might a month ago, but there's often at least one top player who slides down. As a draft day proposal, feel free to qualify any offer based on who's availalble--i.e., if Nichushkin slips, if Shinkaruk is there, etc.

My working assumption is that either the top defenseman are off the board and BPA is a forward, or the Flyers are looking for a more immediate impact than the best-available player would bring.
I think Matt Carkner is your man
