A huge part of drafting and grooming talent is being able to identify it as a young talent that needs time, and having the patience to give them the time and blossom as great players for your team. A number of guys on that list for the Flyers are very good players playing for other teams that didn't offer much to the Flyers, specifically Sharp, Seidenberg, Williams, and Downie. Fleischmann is really the only one you could say that for on the Detroit list.
You're absolutely right, but I was more speaking toward Philadelphia having a knack for drafting talent. I agree development is a huge problem, but they sure have the eye to draft great players.
