Don't get me wrong, I do not like the Ghoul pick. Like many others, I would have much preferred picking Lodge, Subban, or Bjorkstrand. That being said, clearly the Flyers think Ghoul has a better shot at making the NHL, albeit in a limited roll.
No, I just put zero stock in what they're saying either way. Too biased of a source.

What I know is that the Flyers have a long history of overvaluing goons who end up having no impact or minimal impact. What we have here is the Flyers taking a goon 100 picks before he was expected to go. Seems to fit the pattern, and seems to have very high potential to be a wasted pick.

I'm sure the Flyers were pretty pumped for Klotz, too.
