I don't see how selecting Goulbourne can be defended in the 3rd round. I don't care if his leadership qualities or toughness are sky-high; the 3rd round this year was still chock-full of hockey talent when the Flyers' pick came around, and IMHO the Flyers brass sidestepped an opportunity to further bolster the system. It's telling that Goulbourne himself seemed surprised how high he was picked.
