Can't be upset tho, you guys struck gold with Morin & Hagg this past draft, so I think it makes up for missing out on Maatta. I really love that Olli Maatta tho.

The flyers never draft players like Olli Maatta. And that is what drives this fanbase crazy. We are a team that is in need of mobile defenders with puck skills and an offensive upside. Whereas the pens have those type of guys in spades in pouliot , maatta, despres, and letang. Morin won't be a major factor until he is 23-25, and hagg won't have the type of impact as maatta.
