Also, just because scouting agencies had him ahead of certain players, doesn't mean the Flyers did. One thing that is being overlooked is how well the Flyers draft forwards and see potential.
It's just far too early to even call Maata a top pairing all around defender or to even compare the two. He plays 17 minutes a night on a stacked team.
Let's get back to this in 4 years.
but they wanted Wilson over Laughton,Sanguinetti over Giroux,drafted JVR and traded him.
when you have 5 centers and you refuse to trade some of them for Weber and then you draft another one when there is someone who dropped to you who can fill a need then something is not right.
Holmgren likes to make bold moves and it got him nowhere.
as i said before Laughton have to become a pretty damn good player because if Matta turns into #4 Dman and Laughton into a decent #2center then that's a fail.
if Morin was playing in the NHL and doing great i wouldn't be hearing people saying let's get back to this in 4 years
