Marginal defense prospects: Bertilsson, Blidstrand, Larsson off the top of my head.

Well he should he should be left. Most mock lists and rankings have him as a mid to late teens pick. The earliest I have seen him picked in about 20 mock drafts is 10th.

Sort of funny that a lot of Flyers fans want Zadorov, since the most common NHL comparison for him is Braydon Coburn

You have to really banking on Zadorov offensive game coming around. I know you have compared him to Pronger before, but he doesn't have that offensive game yet.

Ryan Pulock would be the more complete player and safer pick. That of course is if he still is there at 8, 9, or 10. Zadorov will most likely be there still.

Eh no, I don't even think he would be out of Jr's his first year, did it say 2013-2014 over the lineup? I must have missed it

Zadorov has been playing behind Harrington and Maata.

He deserves PP time

I hope London gets a real puck-moving defenseman in the trade market. We have Harrington, Zadorov, Hughes, Ferry and Raine who are all shutdown guys, and Liberati and Maatta who are two-way guys at best. We need a defenseman to set up one-timers on the PP for Zadorov.

I agree.

Trade for Erik Karlsson

He's a lot more physical than Coburn though.

And a little less offensive or so he's been since he joined the OHL this year

Less offensive than Coburn? Hmm... I know it helps with being physical, but maybe Pulock I want more than him?

He hasn't gotten much time to flourish in the OHL just yet since it's his first year but he's at about .33 ppg and Coburn wasn't too might higher than .5 ppg in his draft year.

I guess Playoff Coburn would be a better comparison

He wouldn't be a bad pick on the surface of it. He fits in with what the organization wants.

He's meaner than Coburn. Lots of size.

I am always okay drafting BPA, but there is not a clear order to whoever is behind Seth Jones. If Zadorov fits what the Flyers are looking for that would be a fine pick.

The Flyers do need a PMD.

Rasmus Ristolainen would be another guy I would look at if they feel organizationally that center is a position of reduced value due to the bounty they're enjoying.

Also big-- more two way. Great with the puck.

If they go for a puck mover, I'd like Josh Morrissey from Prince Albert.

Great video!
Hands, passing, vision, creativity, protects the puck well, and is relentless for 2nd chances...
Does he back check?

If so, he looks like a pretty special player. Just wow.

Zadorov is not a bad puck moving defenseman at all. Actually, he's very adept at moving the puck and has no problems handling it or making that great first outlet pass.

If he were anywhere else but London, he'd be a regular on the power play and would play in a more offensive role. He's also got a big booming shot from the point that is low, hard, and accurate.

In terms of offensive game, I'd say it's actually a lot more like Zdeno Chara than it is Braydon Coburn. Next season, Zadorov will probably get a lot more power play time in London and then you'll see those offensive numbers shoot up drastically. I will say this though - his defensive game is already NHL caliber. He's very smart on the ice and he knows what's expected of him and that he always takes care of business in his own end before anything else.

The Russians usually go with an older team. That and there's been a bit of a CHL bias in the past.
