I too can read up on these prospects and I've yet to see anything on any dman available when we picked that suggests that there was a top pairing guy available.
NOBODY who scouted these guys projects any of them except for Jones to be a legit top pairing guy.
Everyone agrees that we need help for our defense in the future (ie - dmen prospects) but what do we really need??? We have Coburn, still young, a solid defensive dman, we have Schenn, a physical defensive dman, we have Grossman, a solid bottom 4 defensive, shot blocking dman. What are we missing??? A legit good PMD with offensive upside. Did we get that in Morin?? **** no!!!! We got another big physical defensive minded dman. We still have a ****ing hole in generating offensve from the blueline and moving the puck out of the zone. The only long term future we have on the blueline in that role is freaking Gustafsson and while I really like him, we can only hope that he tops out at becoming a legit 2nd pairing guy in that mold and he's not even close to being that right now.
This selection has failure written all over it. Not because Morin will be a bust but because it DIDN'T address any freaking needs at all. Hell, we would have been better served to draft another forward than a type of dman that we DIDN'T need more of.
maybe the flyers felt that Morin was the bpa? i think you're analyzing it too much. Maybe they have something up their sleeve before the season starts?
plus you just contradicted yourself, claiming that someone is as clueless as the rest of us, then going on to pinpoint what you're so sure morin will be. Maybe he develops more of an offensive game. we don't know. The fact that pulock, morrissey etc. were on the board when we picked Morin doesn't really make me that angry about the pick, because while i like those guys, I'm not really that sure that any of those guys will be more effective players than morin.
