So, should the Flyers pick at 11, trade up or down, pick a dman or the BPA even if its another centre? Please discuss in another 1000 posts.

Holmgren should do something unprecedented and humorous, like trading up to around 6 or 7, and then afterwards trading the newly acquired pick back down.

The board would implode. Especially when Holmgren somehow gives up more to move up than he gets to move back down.

We need a player like Drew Doughty. Are there any players similar to him in this year's draft?

Seth Jones is probably the closest but he won't be at #11.

Morrissey has potential and should be there at 11. But since this is a new thread do not forget my pick of Samuel Morin unless one of the top 4 through 8 picks slide to us. Everyone knows the top three by now.

I wouldn't say that Morrissey compares super well with Doughty. In the sense of a potential two-way defenseman that can skate sure, but Morrissey would have to go through a significant physical maturation to match the size and strength of Doughty.

Based on physical attributes, Doughty and Nurse are probably more closely aligned, but expect Nurse to be Doughty is a shot in the dark as well (as always in the NHL draft).

I'd say Morrissey does compare with Doughty. Yes, Doughty is stronger, but let's not forget that Doughty is a couple of years older and has been in the NHL for some time, so he's got access to superior physical fitness training and the like.

I wouldn't say a significant physical maturation would be required because Doughty is only 5'11, 210 pounds. He's stocky. Morrissey is 6'0, 185 pounds. I'd like to think in five years time, Morrissey reaches the 200+ pound mark when he physically matures.

I'd have to disagree here as well. Based on physical attributes alone, Nurse projects more like Coburn physically. Nurse is 6'5, 210 pounds. He's a big kid already. In terms of offensive production, I think it's very plausible that Nurse becomes a John Carlson type of defenseman in terms of offensive ability.

I don't think Nurse's offensive game measures well to that of Doughty. I see the comparisons more with Carlson and think more and more that's a good fit.

I've read comparisons, and maybe they were yours, of Morrissey to Duncan Keith - small, fast puck moving D.

If his talent/skating/strength are that good, the height doesn't matter as much.

  • Trade Couturier, Laughton and #11 for #1
  • Draft Jones
  • Trade Jones for a veteran depth centre

I think Pulock could be a #1 defenseman.
He is an offensive defenseman over 6' and over 200#.
Central Scouting rates him at #12 overall.

Craig Button of TSN compared him to Al MacInnis.

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie about as many scouts have Poluck ranked in the second round as the first. With the 11th overall the Flyers can do better IMO.

I agree with this. I have wanted Nurse first for awhile, but Pulock has been growing on me. I think he has potential to be a number 1 and there is a good possiblity of him being there at #11.
The Flyers have a huge need for a powerplay QB, first pairing guy. Pulock has leadership, a solid build, decent skating good passing and a cannon shot. He sounds like exactly what the Flyers need.

I must say that over the years I have not been impressed with McKenzie's prediction. The fact that half of the Scouts have him in the first says something as well. Maybe the better scouts have him there, ie. the Flyers scouts who seem to be very good in the first. the point is just because half the scouts say possibly second round is meaningless if someone takes him in the first. I might be wrong but IIRC Forsberg was rated second round in THNs draft guide and I think McKenzie was still with them then.

McKenzie's rankings aren't his personal opinions on the players, he polls 10 different scouts and takes the consensus and ranks them accordingly.

He joined TSN in 1986 after leaving The Hockey News, Forsberg was drafted in 1991.
