I would definitely consider that.

But with the Flyers' record of developing their own #1 defensemen it may turn into a complete disaster a couple of years after the draft or whenever the player actually makes the NHL roster and does not immediately look like the second coming of Jesus and local media puts the spotlight on him.

A safer route would be to swap the two Schenns + for an established first pairing defenseman.
