That's exactly what this draft is about for the flyers. Go big and tough like the prelockout flyers.

They should have gotten a guy with good potential like Mayorov, not some big clod like the next Hatcher. Not that I really know anything about the guy, but that's what I am afraid it will turn out to be.

no he didn't, really weak left hand actaully. not a lot of pims. anyone know anything baout this guy? for once cant they take a boom or bust type guy who has fallen instead of this type of player? to me this guy would have been available later in the draft and doesnt appear from his stats to really have much skill. seems like a longshot wasted pick who wont be ready until 4 yeras anyway. will there even be a league in 4 years? after the draft homer is going to pull off his mask and it will be Clarke underneath.

i agree...this guy is a future enforcer...19 y/o 6'5" 235lbs...still has to learn how to fight...i am curious about who is drafted after him...could we have gotten him 4th or 5th rd??

for a team that has a future with gritty/chippy guys like eager, richards, downie, hartnell we have no enforcer in the pipeline to give them space...please no riley cote or triston grant fan responses

I don't understand this pick. He has 2 goals, 2 assists in 60 some games. Any reason why he couldn't be picked in the 7th round?

It does seem to be an awkward pick. Maybe when this is all over he'll explain this pick.

A winger with 4 pts this season. And not a ton of PIM's. Yay. Yippee. Woo freakin' Hoo.

Seriously, ***?

Maybe he'll become the next Andrew Peters or George Parros?

Failure.

I think I could name 200 players I'd rather have drafted than this clown. And to pick him #66? What the ****?

Are we sure Clarke wasn't running this draft and Holmgren wasn't his drone? For an organization that usually does a good job of asset management, this draft has been a real poor exercise in asset management.

Maybe they arent picking the right players, no one knows at this point, but not sure about bad asset management.

I think it is simple. They spend the last few years drafting smaller, skilled players like Giroux, Downie, Ruzicka, Potulny, Nodl, Ratchuk, Bartilus, Matsumoto, and to a lesser extent Carter and Richards. Most of these guys, with a couple exceptions are skilled players without much grit. In a draft year not deep on huge talent, they are adding some size and grit back into the organizational depth chart. I am fine with it.

We have been saying for a while now how other then Downie, most of our prospect forwards were top 6 or bust. Now we are filling in some of those bottom 6 guys.

Who knows? Maybe this guy becomes a solid checking shut down winger in the bottom 6. As long as he can skate.

“Garrett is a great big guy that can really skate, and is tough and aggressive,” said Holmgren. “We think he’ll develop into a good player.”
