And this seems like the type of draft to take that chance.
With that said, I don't think that happens. But the thought of walking away from the draft with Morrissey and Morin for example is just great to think about
I don't see anyway the Flyers will walk away from this draft with 2 top 20 picks (and certainly not 2 in the top 11). This team is in win-now mode and in order to add an additional high pick they'll have to give up an NHL asset (since their isn't much in the pipeline). If they move up, #11 will be included. It still wouldn't shock me if #11 is traded before the draft for an NHL piece. I don't think Homer is calling it a day after Streit.
