This is certainly the year the Flyers can draft for need because there are numerous defensemen available. For instance, if the pick comes down to say Hunter Shinkaruk or Rasmus Ristolainen, I'd certainly hope that Ristolainen is their choice because he's a need. Is Shinkaruk the better player? Maybe, but the Flyers have plenty of Shinkaruks (who's a center) when you look at Giroux, Schenn, Couturier and Laughton.

The difference between BPA and Need this year is not that great at all. This is the perfect year to draft a need.
