If the Flyers were willing to move back to the late teens or early 20's with Calgary or Columbus, they might be able to snag a really late first rounder for such a move which would be fine by me. When drafting defensemen, it is always better to draft in bulk since they are so hard to predict.
Idk. I could see a team moving up if there is a guy they specifically want. The #11 pick won't get you two picks, but the #11 plus something else might if the guy the BJs want is there at #11. As has been stated here ad nauseum, teams value guys differently in the draft. If Pulock is available at #11 and that is the guy CBJ wants and he is ranked atop their board, I could easily see them dealing two of their picks to nab him. Of course, the situation has to be right. I don't see that trade going down before the draft, it would likely be when the Flyers are actually on the clock.
