I'd be kind of disappointed if they picked zykov with the 11th overall pick. He looks like a good prospect but there will likely be better names there at that point. If they really want a forward I'd much rather go with Anthony Mantha, Hunter Shinkaruk or (unlikely hell be there) Valery Nichushkin.

Also, there will likely be some good defensemen to choose from. One of Ristolainen, Nurse, Pulock or Morrissey should be available at that spot as well. Zykov would be a reach at 11 IMO, and the risk would be a mistake.

No offense to you but so tired reading this or nearly this exact post over and over and over again. Can't wait for the playoffs to be done

Eh, I dont think its that much of a reach. He is considered around 15 or so on most mock drafts and lists. Dont see how you say you go for Mantha there and say Zykov is a reach. Mantha is rated after Zykov on every list. Zykov also scored 40 goals (Mantha scored 50) but Zykov is 9 months younger.

As much as I don't want to see the club draft a forward, I'd have no problems if they chose Zykov. There's something very Mark Recchi-like about his game.

I don't understand. I was just expressing my view on an individual prospect? I'm not of the belief that they should just draft a defenseman because we need a defenseman. I think they need to go BPA. It just so happens that the BPA could very well be a defenseman at #11...

Does anyone else find it funny that the Flyers would be replacing Walker with Lamarche?

LOL.

Do not expect a defenseman even if he is higher rated.
I think the Flyers ratings are different than other teams.
Other teams look for #1 Defensemen in the first round.
I am of the opinion that BPA for the Flyers is always a forward or center

Its easier to project a forward and they pan out more then defensemen. How many #1 d-men are in the league versus top line forwards. If they pick the BPA Defensemen and he busts or turns into a Coburn people will be all over the organization and how they didn't pick that one guy who turned into a stud LW

I would send Walker to the moon along with Leighton and Briere.

Is Bud Holloway fair game? I love the pic they have of him on Elite Prospects, which I only noticed because he led the Elitserien in scoring for champions Skelleftea this year. And the starting goaltender for the squad? Joacim Eriksson.

He has been brilliant and lead the elitserien in points for two straight seasons I think, but I think his rights are own by LA though.

Another under the radar D-man to fill out the roster. Guess it can't be too bad.

To be fair, some people around here don't speak French.

I'm just here to share the joy of international love, understanding and learning. Oh, and to post asinine comments that sound funny in my head.

His rights are owned by the Kings anyway.
