The worst thing you can do in a draft is reach for need. This is especially true in NHL and MLB because you're drafting guys who may not even play for your team for a couple of years and likely aren't hitting their max potential for 4 or 5 years after they were drafted.

If you have an immediate need the chances of a draft pick filling it are very slim. If said draft pick is in bottom 1/3 of the first round the chances decrease that much more. All you can do is trust your scouts and go for the best player on the board. Since the Flyers have shown a very good ability to draft in the first round I'd be willing to trust their scouts.

It's usually the middle to later rounds that I have more issues with their draft selections. Why the organization continues to waste draft picks on goons who's max upside is a 7th defenseman or a 4th line player is beyond me.

I forgot to say something last night but when they were showing Homer before he went up to make our pick he was on the phone. I guess nothing ever happened with it?

Homer is such a mysterious man.

I bet Detroit gets Collberg today. He is their kind of player. Undersized, overlooked, and skilled.

Or Pontus Aberg. Both smaller players with some high offensive skill. Flyers dont ussually take those kinds of players.

My guesses at picks? One shutdown defender with one of the 4th picks, an overager winger from the Q, one swedish puckmoving defender, a big goon who fights, a goalie from the ohl or whl, another overager

Holmgren needs to hurry up and trade this 2nd round pick, the draft is about to restart.

As I said, the fringe 1st rounders don't last.

If Hyka will be the first Czech drafted today I'll laugh hysterically

Anthony Stolarz to Philadelphia.

Quote:
CORPUS CHRISTI — For a guy who was looking for a team a year ago, Anthony Stolarz isn't in a bad place right now.

The IceRays goalie is in Pittsburgh, where he's expected to be selected Saturday during the second day of the NHL draft. Stolarz is projected to be taken in the middle to late rounds of the seven-round draft.

What would he have said a year ago had someone told him he'd be invited to the draft and likely be the only North American Hockey League player taken?

"I probably would've told you that you were a little crazy," said Stolarz, who graduated from Gregory
