Scott Laughton

So, pretty simple question. Is Scott Laughton ready to play the full season next year?

No. He's a bust. Trade him for Derek Morris.

He's not eligible. It's either the NHL or back to the OHL.

Still? Sheesh. I assumed he would be eligible since he finished the year there.

Edit: I see that he is still 5 months too young. Lame.

Most players who jump from the CHL to the NHL have dominated the CHL for two seasons. Laughton has started to do it for one year. If he's on the 3rd line here and Couturier is on the 2nd, that could wind up ugly this year (Peter Principle in effect). I still say it's preferable to hold off for a year unless he can't be denied in camp.

He was on an ATO contract. CHL players are allowed to play in the AHL when their season is up with their CHL team even if they aren't eligible age wise.

It sucks sometimes but I understand why it's there. The CHL is a 16-20 year old league. If you eliminate the 19 and 20 year olds it really kills the overall talent in the league as a whole.

IMO yes, he'll most likely be our 4th line center and if he shows well in camp, he could get some PK time. I think he'll eventually get moved to the wing and play on Coots line but that'll be another year or 2 from now.

My question is simply is he ready to be traded?
Could still use more offensive defenseman in backend.
Maybe they could trade Laughton + Coburn for a young #1 defenseman?

For us Flyers fans it's fair value.

But for another team, to make them consider moving their #1 d-man, Flyers need to overpay.

Start with Couturier and Coburn.

He should be given the chance to make the roster, but if he's just going to be a 4th liner and struggle if he has to move up due to injury I would rather they send him back to Juniors and sign someone like Steckel for a stop gap on the 4th line.

Wait, so the Flyers can't stick him in the AHL this year? He has to either make the NHL roster or they have to send him back to the OHL for another year? That kinda sucks.
