I can't say for sure that he would be the number one, since I don't have a clue who Alex Picard is. But I've seen Ruzicka play twice, and he don't have any future, maybe as a 4th lineer if he chance his style. Downie, probably a decent 4th lineer, the only player I like on that list. Oskar Bartulis? You must be kidding me. "Obviously you don't know better"?
Gooing by HF's standards Jessiman is without a doubt atleast 2nd on that list, even if Lars Jonsson where listed... I mean, Jessiman have potential, but is really unlikely to reach it, like TB said. But guys like Eager and Downie have no upside what-so-ever.
Clarke have done really well getting Richard, Pitkänen and Carter. But other then that, please, if your farm aren't ranked 30th overall in the league, its because someother GM have done extremely bad...
i won't argue about jessiman, but you are severely under rating a few players in the flyers farm. you wont catch me saying they have a top prospect crop by any means, but come on i mean, you dont even know who alex picard is.
I think they are going with esche and the kid houle as his backup.
nabby has a 5 million dollar 4 year deal and a no trade clause. JS is in the final year of a deal that pays him north of 4 million.
I don't really see either going to philly unless clarke can shed some salary in return. Frankly I don't see the sharks or ducks taking any of the flyers castoffs.
also a note with RJ umberger and Lars Jonsson both being young and picked up as free agents the flyers have done a good job of paying kids to play hockey. Both are good young players from other clubs systems.
