Apparently Oliver Laurdisen has gone back to his home planet as well, since he's gone from a "wow we got this guy in the 7th round?" to nobody mentioning him at all.

That is true for all prospect pools, even the highly rated ones. This is a prospect website and fans get excited about potential and rankings, but most first round picks and many of the "top 50" won't amount to anything. We as Flyers fans have been spoiled that the team hasn't missed a 1st rd pick since Jeff woywitka in 2001.

Yeah I know, but... how does that project them to the NHL level?

Hey,

Been trying to find a list (maybe there isn't one) of our prospects playing in the WHL and what teams they are on....

Someone give me a hand with this? TIA

EDIT - maybe there aren't any?

I believe the only prospect we have playing in the WHL is LW Taylor Leier in Portland.

The forwards, and it might be a little premature on Noebels, might never amount to being more than excellent third liners with some offensive pop and Ghost might not be higher than 2nd pair defensmen. However, when 3 of those players were drafted after the 2nd round, that is very good scouting. Personally, I think Willcox develops into an NHL defensemen too making the pool even deeper.
I'm very high on Taylor Leier. I think the Flyers got a potential Kris Versteeg in him. Just a good all around hockey player with very good hockey sense, speed, and now he's getting a chance to play in an offensive role in Portland. He could also turn out to be a very nice gem.

The last two drafts for the Flyers have been good. I wonder if there has been a philosophical change or new scouts hired.

A lot too early to evaluate how the drafts have been imo. A guy can look great, then never materialize at the NHL level.

I will say that it often helps when you aren't trading away all of your early picks for in-season bandaids.

It was a joke. Grossmann too, but they resigned him.

Missed the joke

And I didn't count Grossmann because it wasn't just an in-season bandaid since he signed him to a 4 year deal

In this case they are preparing for the flu that is going around the lockerroom.

I heard he was coming back but seems to have a small setback today after practicing.

Yea. I also am looking at these other guys he's going against. MAB's brains all messed up. He either has a concussion or has the flu. Something is wrong there. The Dane and Manning have both taken steps back from last season.
