Morin was easily the highest selected of them other than Myers, so yes, there is hope, but people need to understand that this was a risky pick that will require a strong development effort out of his Juniors team and the Flyers over the next 3-4 years.
Much like Stolarz, Flyer fans would be best served putting Morin out of their mind for a couple of years
There are very few 6'6 defenseman let alone 6'6 defenseman with mobility. It's a rare group. Myers, Hedman,...? If you want to lump him into the Boris Valabik and Vlad Mahalik category go ahead but he's much more skilled than those guys.
