Interesting read on the new FO people


Holmgren's strength in the organization has always been in the scouting and drafting of players on the amateur level. The Flyers historically draft late and always come up with a plum, producing quality drafts.
Their mistakes are rarely made at the draft table. They are made when players in their system are used as trade bait for veterans to strengthen playoff runs.
Brown's forte is his knowledge of the NHL and American Hockey League. Luce, who worked with Buffalo, gets credit for helping the Sabres acquire an array of young talent. He was laid off when Buffalo slashed its budget.
With the Flyers, Luce will be responsible for developing draft picks. This is a new concept in the organization: making one person the "parent," if you will, of a draft pick from infancy to adulthood.
