Now I'm not saying they took the wrong players but what I am saying is 90% of the posters on here that were so sure (myself included) of who they were going to draft were wrong. You don't know what they are going to do 2 months away from the draft. You may end up being right, I'm just saying you never know.

I don't follow. None of those players had a two-year KHL commitment.

I'm simply saying that the Flyers will not draft a Russian forward bound to the KHL for at least two more years with a top-5 pick. I'm not saying that they will select any particular player (like your list). Just that precedent suggests that they will not take Nichushkin.

UMM...You're the one not making sense. The point of my post is (and anyone with a 6th grade reading comprehension can understand) You don't know who they will draft. I gave a list of examples showing we all didn't know then and don't know now. Is it fun to speculate? Sure it is. Every time we think we know who Homer is going to draft, we have been wrong. Now you may end up being right. They probably won't draft him. But you don't know that.

Lets go Tampa! Separate yourselves from us by beating buffalo in OT!

If Calgary, Colorado, Carolina and Florida all win their next games and we lose ours, well be sitting with the 3rd overall pick, a point away from the 2nd, and 3 away from the 1st.

Fair enough. I fixed my post..

Anyway, I stand by my prediction: the Flyers will not pick a Russian with KHL obligations in the top 5. It would be wildly out of character for the organization.

I won't hazard a guess who they will pick because, as you noted, it tends to be a fruitless exercise. I think that there is less risk of error in speculating as to who the team would not select (based on past drafting patterns) than there is to guessing the pick, but I can understand why you would think its two sides of the same coin.

Let's just let this thread return to its intended purpose, shall we?

We're lucky for our tank effort that we have a pretty tough schedule to end the year:

@MTL - L
vs NYR - L
vs NJS - L
@ CAR - W
vs BOS - L
vs NYI - L
@ OTT - W

I really could see us losing 6 of the last 7 though

The New Jersey Satans. Sheesh! Get out a bit onto other sites here!

If you do, btw, check out the poll on JvR vs Seguin. There are 17 human beings (in theory) who would choose JvR.

So how long before Leafs' fans realize he just started out on a hot streak? I say it's about 9 months from now.

They're already doing that. Now they're on Kadri's nuts.



On a related note, I love how Tampa fans are now saying the same things we said about Carle here.
