From Laughton's interview:

Quote:
"I've been looking up to Mike Richards for a while now," he told us. "He's a guy that I love to watch play and I really like Shane Doan too. Those two guys are huge for me and I like to model myself after them. They're just really good players and they're always there for their team in the playoffs and everything like that. They're heart and soul type of guys so I really like looking at those guys."

They rarely miss. Especially with forwards
Thank you for bringing some accurate analysis to this whole deal ! We have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many drama queens on here that have no earthly idea how to build a hockey team, and who constantly pi$$ on Homers every move etc......The Flyers are NAILS on draft day of late in my opinion.

Relax. Our scouting team has a better 1st round track record then any of us.
I remember it well and remember it exactly as you do. Homer has earned my respect when it comes to drafting so I trust his moves. I'm still not happy we didn't take Maatta but time will tell. This kid sounds great, but I've never seen him. McGuire sure seemed excited about it.

Finn and Skjei still on the board. Maybe they'll last? No cable right now so they have been taken as I post this.

And a lot of people forget, in my opinion, that hockey is very different then say the NFL or NBA draft where almost every 1st round player might have some impact for the team the following year. I think we were spoiled last year because Couturier started immediately which does not happen as often as you think, especially picking at 20. I think this pick solidifies our 3rd line center spot a few seasons down the road or maybe sooner if we can now afford to deal a higher rated forward then we could have maybe an hour ago (Schenn).

You're being dramatic about people being dramatic.

People are having fun, a little emotion on their sleeves. It's good.

It's been far crazier before. 10x.

.... and not a single person has said anything to dispute the Flyers track record on 1st round picks.

I think Schenn is completly off limits.

I bet we aren't even going after Weber, I bet its one of the younger D
