Even though I had the Flyers selecting Ristolainen, there's a lot working against that in the Flyers' draft history.

The Flyers do not necessarily shy away from Europeans so much as they shy away from Europeans playing in European leagues at the time of the draft. This trend is also fairly evident early in the draft.
I can't believe Meltzer of all people went back ten years to try and show a pattern in the Flyers draft. According to many on here, it means nothing.
