They may have been leaning towards Kane, but I think there's a decent chance that the Flyers may have gone for JVR had they had the number one pick.
At the time, I believe it was stated that JVR had the highest upside out of the two. Combine that with Holmgren's love for big players, and the fact that he's a local kid, I think there's definitely a chance we'd have taken him at #1.
I know we all get upset that JVR isn't here anymore to play on Giroux's wing, but it really stings thinking that we could have Kane there now.
