You mean the McKenzie that had Laughton 28th on his final rankings? That one?

Watching the video... they even talk about it being down their respective lists, but the Flyers consistently being a great drafting team.
Maatta was the highest ranked player on McKenzie's board when the Flyers selected Laughton. Not sure what we're even arguing anymore.

Yes, I over-stated the term "off the board" in the context of Laughton. He was a late first/early second prospect taken in the early 20s. The point that the Flyers moved him up and ignored the consistently higher ranked Maatta to take Laughton speaks to the fact that the Flyers take their BPA, not for strict need.... as we have been arguing for 10 pages.
