I see where you are coming from. More so I mean a high draft pick is not a sure thing to lead to cup victories or deep playoff runs. I think getting a chance in the playoffs +15-20 draft pick is about the same chance as a top 3 pick. Yes if you have enough losing years you can build a sick team of three or four top picks but personally I would not want to go through that and I'd take my chances at a first round likely exit and multiple years of 16-20 any year. The flyers are not a poor team, they don't need much.
