If I had to pick one? Madison Bowey. I could see him going right before #41, but Kelowna does a remarkable job developing NHL caliber defenseman. Whether it's their development program or just eye for talent, you cannot deny their success over the last decade.
I also think there could be a nice value out of one of the USNTDP guys, especially the defenseman. Those kids usually go underrated because they don't get the exposure the major junior kids do (Thinking of guys like Clendenning, Faulk, Merrill). The Flyers don't really draft from the US program however (actually now that I think about it, I don't think they ever have picked one beside JVR).
There will be some value in the second round no doubt. If the rumors are any indication, it seems like Homer realizes this. If we don't walk away with at least one WHL defenseman though I will be disappointed though.
