Yeah, that's not bad.
I wouldn't trade the 11th either unless it was absolutely a good deal. I would hang on to the 41st as well -- given the fermentation period defensemen need (like a good ale, they need some good bottom of the barrel fermenting and aging) and alot of D-man contracts expiring for the Flyers near that time-- IF it is a tie between a forward and defenseman as the BPA with the 41st I would lean towards the defenseman, even a defensive defenseman as the team should start looking NOW the future post Coburn/Grossmann should they need to reload.
It's like Meltzer stated-- you really want replacements at every position coming through the ranks. I think, sometimes with our preoccupation with a transitional defenseman or a Flyersesque forward-- we overlook the need to reload some D-heavy d-men.
Sorry, got off on a bit of a tangent here responding to your original point.
