I'm not sure if that's a serious analysis or a shot at the team's tendency to rush its 1st round picks (which is sort of fair), but as I posed above, barring a trade, it is hard to see an opening. Timonen, Schenn, Coburn, Meszaros, and Grossmann are all under contract and projected to be in the line-up. That leaves one spot. Gustafsson is no longer waiver exempt, so it is his to lose, and I think they'd be reluctant to risk him being claimed.

It seems like someone would either have to still be hurt (Grossmann is still suffering from concussion symptoms, so that is possible) or traded to open up a slot for whomever the Flyers pick.
