Well we have the Chris Gratton signing to look back on. The Flyers would have forfeited 4 first round picks to Tampa Bay, but to regain them they traded Mikael Renberg & Karl Dykhuis for those picks.
Those picks ended up being #22(Simon Gagne), #23(Maxime Ouellet), #28(Justin Williams), #23 (Although Flyers then moved down with Ottawa to #27 and took Jeff Woywitka with Ottawa taking Tim Gleason at #23)
Since Simon Gagne was drafted here are the players the Flyers took in the 20s
98: 22nd Simon Gagne
99: 22nd Maxime Oullet
00: 28th Justin Williams
01: 27th Jeff Woywitka
03: 24th Mike Richards
05: 29th Steve Downie
06: 22nd Claude Giroux
08: 19th(close enough) Luca Sbisa
12: 20th Scott Laughton
3 top line forwards in Gagne, Richards, and Giroux out of 9 picks. Pretty good success IMO.
williams is another top line forward.
