Sooooo we need defensemen... drafts center.... unless Schenn is being moved I really don't understand this. No knock on this kid but I just don't see how it addresses our needs.

How many centers does it take to win a Cup? Answer? About 100 apparently.

That makes Schenn a little more expendable.

Laughton is a great player. I really wanted to the Canucks to take him. But having the flyers as my second team, I'm not complaining. Trust me, this kid is one of the best two way forwards that was in the draft...

Flames will take Maata now.

I will never insult the flyers first round drafting talent.

They rarely miss. Especially with forwards

As odd and seemingly off the board this pick is, we haven't missed with a 1st round pick on a forward since Jason Bowen in 1992. Every 1st round pick we've made on a forward has turned out to be a very good NHL player. I'm not concerned. They know what they're doing.

I'm okay with this. Not what I wanted, but if there's one thing we know how to develop its centers.

Schenn or Cousins on the way out?

I see a lot of value in this kid. This is a safe pick. Plus, I love defensive forwards, and we sure could use them. Although, I thought we could sign one as an FA. Maybe Homer knows we can't develop defensemen.

Pierre was ripping on Calgary for trading down and they could still take Maatta...

Maybe the Flyers just know they can't draft defensemen.

Hey it's alright. Laughton is a good player. And we can take Pokka in the second round.

No doubt the kid will be a real good player, but Center isnt the position we should be picking

My first thought.

My second. Calgary has to be laughing. They might have taken Maatta at 14. Trade back for a decent second. And they will still get him.

But this is pretty difficult to understand. Isn't Gaunce a better 3C prospect anyway?
