I don't like the what has transpired, but I will say I trust the Flyers pick over what I or any of us wanted.

Last time Pittsburgh drafted a guy who fell far in the first round it was Angelo Esposito. Here's hoping history repeats itself.

It's why everyone always says to draft BPA.
Stop it! You're being too logical for this thread!

The Flyers don't trade for any players and don't get TT or a defenseman. Good luck getting Suter, Parise, or Schultz. Most likely those played go elsewhere and Flyers do nothing.

And I don't see what one thing has to do with the other

That was Button's guy. Everyone hates him, but he was on that bandwagon first. He could be really good. He's a long ways off though.

Well, to be fair, it was always pretty likely that Parise was going to sign elsewhere; ditto Suter. And I don't remember a reliable report that linked Schultz here...

but wait.

I got it.

Maybe this is all a part of a grand plan.

"See, Justin, we have no top-4 NHL defensive prospects...imagine all the playing time you'll get."

It is just frustrating to never draft top D men. And when a big skilled top 10 one is available at 20, we want them. Our pick is a good one, just be nice to draft some Dmen.

Maatta was the BPA.

Oh, give me a break. So because TSN had him as the BPA, that makes him the BPA?

Nobody hear can objectively declare who the BPA is except the guys who watch them play.

I think they're called......scouts?

This is a serious question: what are the odds of us actually getting Suter? I just feel like he's either going to Detroit or staying in Nashville.

Ducks hang up because the GM is a retard. He has a player that doesn't want to play anymore and Schenn is the 2C they've been looking for and yet the GM asks for too much. Laughton would replace him for the future anyways.

According to TSN.

Are you aware that most teams have different lists?

Because we won't upgrade the team this offseason. I'm just upset. It'll get better.

Anyone know where to find pre-draft profiles of Giroux? Would be fun to go back and read!

To us maybe, but I'm sure the Flyer's have their own board. I hope.
