Eh. The Flyers have pretty consistently been very good at drafting from playoff position, better than almost any other team I would say. The problem is that Homer neutralized that strength by shipping out all the picks. Drafting from a PO position isn't what hurt/is hurting the Flyers, it's barely drafting in high rounds at all.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
