2) with more modern technology in the modern era of hockey, the scouting process has also improved making the draft more top heavy. think about the technology that was just coming out a decade ago...**** think about the technology that was just coming out 5 years ago.
So even if the number of players the Flyers are finding in later rounds is significantly less than 20-30 years ago, it is the same exact way across the board in the NHL.
you are running in circles. you can love homer all you want. again were are his success outside the first round.
