What do you think is the Flyers plan for the 2006 draft?

We have 4 extra 2nd round picks along with all of our normal picks.

What's the best plan of action? At the start of next season our prospect core will be pretty basic in many areas, so should we keep all the 2nds, or should we trade up for a super star?

What would it cost us to move up in the top 10? (let's say the Flyers have around the 28th pick)

From the 28th pick to the top 10?

Assuming you are using draft picks only, and not players: 28th pick, plus 2 (If they are 2 of the first 2nd round picks) possibly 3 2nd round picks depending on where they fall in the second round. And that would be to move to the 9th or 10th pick.

I can see the Flyers using them to adjust their roter before the trading deadline (replacing injured or underperforming players). Cap space,of course, will be a key determining factor.
Baring that, it really is too early to tell. The number of quality players, position of the picks, depth of the draft etc, will help to determine that.

I predict we will have 0 2nd round picks, two first rounders and probably three third round picks in 2006. Clarke just seems to hate 2nd round picks. Drozdetsky is the last guy I think we took in the second round.

Frolik, Joensuu, or Toews would be a nice second prize.

BC will flip all the 2nd rounders in 2006 for even more 2nd rounders in 2007.

Sounds like a sound reason not to take any more second rounders.

Alex was a third round pick, 94th overall to be exact. The flyers actually said they almost picked him over Williams, they were that high on him. I think the last time we picked in the 2nd round was Ian Forbes, but I could be wrong.

I will be shocked if we still have all 4 of the 2nd rounders come draft day next year.

Injuries...No Cap Worries!!!

if we need to replace a player because of injury it will most likely be because that player is seriously injured and will miss substantial time...the CBA has provisions writen into it to allow teams to sign "replacement players" without counting against the cap...

From the NHL CBA website:
Quote:
A Club's payroll will include all salaries, signing bonuses and performance bonuses paid to players. Except in the case of bona fide long-term injury (injuries that sideline a player for a minimum of 24 days and 10 games) to one or more of a club's players, Club payrolls will never be permitted to be below the minimum or in excess of the maximum. Clubs at or near the upper limit that have players who incur a bona fide long-term injury will be entitled to replace up to the full value of the injured player's NHL salary (even if such salary would result in the club's team salary exceeding the upper limit). The "replacement salary" will not count against the club's upper limit but will count against the League-wide players' share. Upon return of the injured player, the team must come into immediate compliance with the requirements of the payroll range.
No worries if we get injuries in terms of the cap at least.

It's doubtful that Clarke holds on to all those 2nd rounders as they are tempting to us for trading up for a higher pick. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Flyers trade some off for another 1st round pick or two. Ultimately it will depend on how the scouts feel about the depth of the draft and the type of player they can pick in the second round. If they keep all the picks and used them though, it'd sure make the prospect depth look a LOT better, considering they'll be playing Carter and Richards this year.

Clarke is smart and is doing the same thing he did prior to the 03 draft. He collected many picks because he knew it was the best draft in over a decade. As of now the 06 draft looks very promising, not as good as 03, but up there. I bet he picks up more picks in the next year. It would be great to be set up for another draft with 2 1st rounders and select top prospects like carter and richards again.

who knows who they'll pick next year, no one knew theyd'e take downey, so time will tell.

I think the second rounders will all go to LA as the 'future considerations' part of the Roenick deal, and we get a 7th rounder out of it.

Actually, I agree with those who think Clarke hates second rounders, so somehow we will rid ourselves of all of them before the draft.

Interestingly, now with the Cap, instead of using the picks for players which could put us over the Cap, we will have to trade them for future picks.

I think that was was the year we made 2 2nd round selections!! Amazing. Beckett and Forbes. Forbes was a project, but Beckett was supposed to be this real solid pick "who could play for the Phantoms right now." Boy did he fall off the planet.

That's insane. 4 2nd round picks and a 3rd just for taking Roenick for one year?
