I think the Flyers picked Morin over Zadorov because Morin knows his game a little better. He knows he is not an offensive guy and plays within his own game.
To be fair, Zadorov was coming off 2 goals and 4 assists in his 8 OHL games after his NHL stint too, so it's a little more than this tournament that have shown some offensive improvements. As a I said in his prospect thread, I'm not sure that what Zadorov is showing is real either, but it's hard to suggest it's not.

I wasn't a Zadorov or Morin guy going into last year's draft, but I can see why both players were so well thought of.
