This might be a little harsh and I might change my mind tomorrow, and granted I'm not a pro scout and don't know much about these players or how they will turn out, but what I do know about them leads me to believe that this is the most disappointed I've been in a Flyers draft in my life, lol.
It is harsh.
Morin v. Zadorov is a toss-up, but I will trust the scouts.
Hagg is good value in the 2nd.
Everything else is a crapshoot. I'd have liked a more ambitious pick at 72, but overall, I am happy with the top of the draft. I wanted them to take D, and they took two.
I don't think they're necessarily out of the clear yet. If a team misses out on a player during free agency Homer'a phone might be ringing for either of those two.
Yeah, I posted something similar on the trade board about Coburn. I still think Read gets moved before the season and if he's still here come October and we get off to a **** start again, he could be moved at the TDL
His coach is impressed by Madsen's strengths, but equally boasts of his goaltender's ability to identify weaknesses and improve on them. "He's got great feet. He moves post-to-post very well. He has been working on his glove and getting better on the shots upstairs," said Walsh.
Madsen will spend the 2013-14 season playing for the Des Moines Bucaneers in the United States Hockey League (USHL). In Des Moines he will be replacing Providence recruit Nick Ellis between the pipes. Former Ferris State player Jon Rogger coaches Des Moines, but one of his assistants is Coach Walsh's friend, Devereaux, who recommended Madsen to Walsh two years ago.
