Ugh I hate the Flames, and if they take Maata I'm going to be pissed off.

You guys just got the next Mike Richards, I was hoping he would fall to the Kings. His hockey sense and compete is off the charts, might not quite have the passing abillity of Richards though, we'll see.

The team knows that they can't develop defensemen. So, I believe the organizational belief is that they should continue to do what they're good at, and then use that strength to address a weakness by trading for defensemen.

I'm sure I'm going to like Laughton's style. I'm bitter they passed on Maatta, but we'll see what happens.

Dont know how people can be so pissed. This pick wont be in the NHL for at least two years. Wont reach his potential probably for another two after that.

I would have liked Maata, but come on. By that time our entire D will probably look different.

What do you guys seriously expect this pick to do for the current roster?

I'll trust our scouting. Not many of us have even watched Maata or Laughton play

There's Seidenberg too.

OR he was simply going off the fact that Schenn was on Briere's wing last year.

Haha, you new people should learn not to get attached to players before they're even drafted. No matter how little sense it makes at the time, the Flyers regularly go somewhat off the board. I think the Flyers front office has plenty of areas open to criticism, however, drafting in the first round is not one of them. People here were outraged when Jeff Carter was picked over Robert Nilsson in 2003 and said "Who?" when Mike Richards was drafted.

Hope Pokka falls to us now... that would easily make up for this, not going to hate on the kid, as he could turn into a great player.

Not *****ing, just really wanted Maata or Bystrom!

Can you really blame them? Look how many teams are looking for Centers. It'll pay off in the long run.

Keep in mind that this organization is absolutely dreadful developing defensemen.

OK. I'm not going to be mad. I want to see how he does compared to Maata. He's a center, Homer is good at spotting centers, maybe this kid will be incredible.

Of course, it's not like our defense is completely borked or anything, but this is Philly! We don't ****ing draft or ****ing develop ****ing any ****ing of our ****ing ******* ****ing de-****ing-fense-****ing-men, we pre-****ing-fer to ****ing trade or buy ****ing our whole ****ing blueline, because what the **** is a ****ing salary ****ing cap? Who the **** ****ing cares if we ****ing spend twice ****ing as much money ****ing on defense than ****ing every other ****ing team ****ing with worse ****ing results ****ing than many of them, because ****ing we cannot ****ing grow a ****ing defenseman from ****ing within.

OK, I lied. I got angry for a second.

Flames will take Maata now.
This comment by Kassian Train helps soothe me, because two way forwards are also a need. Maybe all will be well?
