It was handed to him immediately and it back fired. Since then, Phaneuf has really had no structure to his game and he's suffered as a result.

I'd have to think that in Philadelphia, Nurse would benefit from having Pronger, Hatcher, Timonen and Kevin McCarthy around to guide him on the finer points. I also think that some scouts are little off their rocker with regards to him being dumb on the ice. If anything, he's a bit over aggressive at times, but that's something that can be corrected with good coaching.
I agree. If by some strange chance Nurse falls to 11 and he is their BPA then they have to pick him up. I know his uncle is a jerk but this young man should blossom in this setting here in Philly. However I see him and Lindholm gone by 11. The way I figure it unless one of the players the Flyers are in love with drops into their lap. my three should be there and I really beleive that anyone of them would fit in here like a glove. Samuel Morin,Joshua Morrissey and Kerby Rychel come on down!!
