Hopefully an off season of clearing up matters and then being able to focus on hockey will help him get to the next level.

If he does become a quality NHL defender, that could make him, Gostisbehere, Morin and Hagg as all defenders who could join the big club and that doesn't even include a Brandon Manning (who I still think could be a very valuable piece) and Oliver Lauridsen. That's building a pipeline and that's what the Flyers need. Maybe it's just me, but I'm really feeling good about the future of the blue line.
Right now, my ranking based on potential...

1. Morin
2. Hagg
3. Gostisbehere
-- (healthy Bourdon)
4. Manning
5. Alt
6. Willcox
7. Lauridsen
8. Konan
9. Vasiliev
10. Larsson
