Sweet. I'm happy we get Nolan. I know he has some injury problems, but I think he has the higher skillset

I love it!  I was never sold on Hischier.  Patrick has been at the top of the rankings for his draft class for a long time.  And I like that he said he wanted to fall to #2 so he could play for the Flyers!!

My favorite part: Hextall not thanking anyone.
 

Just rocks up the the mic, and makes the pick

Only thing cooler would have been if he did the "drop the mic" thing.

I'm with you.  Patrick looks like he has potential to be a leader.  Hischier looks like he might be a hotdog that's worried about himself.  Id like to have a hotdog like that, but I think the flyers will need a powerful, leading center in the near future more than a possible winger.

If you told me last year this time the flyers would get Patrick I would never have believed you. Now I feel a little down as I wanted Nico. However I am reminded that the Flyers moved from 13 to get second and grabbed Patrick so real just thankful of the Flyers good fortune.

 Ridiculous statement saying Hischier might be a hotdog.   Obviously you haven't heard him talk or heard his back story or watched any of the hilights of him.    I am happy with Nolan Patrick I just hope he is not a bubble boy.

I'm neither upset or happy about the pick. It is what it is - the Flyers selected the top rated player for this draft. Really can't blame them. Hopefully the major injuries are a thing of the past. That's one thing that still has me concerned.

The guy is 18 freakin' years old, for God sake. There's a long line of 18 year olds who can be labeled a hot dog, whether they play hockey or not. Give me a break. Hischier is mega talented, as is Patrick. I'm more worried about Patrick's injury history, but they should both be outstanding players.

You're right...i don't know his back story.  I'm just looking at his game.  I'm not saying he's OV hotdog.  He just looks like a guy that will keep to himself and do his thing (like a lot of European players).  I want a leader in the center.  I know Hischier is a center, but he'll probably be a smaller center, or maybe a wing one day.

 No,  Hextall said the personal meeting he had with Nolan was to talk about his health issues.   Or that is what Hextall is saying.

Hexy said he wasn't concerned with Patrick's health because they have Jim McCrossin to handle anything that comes up.:flyers:

Really?

 

I mean, I get it in theory. But with Provorov and Ghost as 'established' NHLers in the sense that they have graduated to the NHL, Morin and Hagg likely making the jump this year, we're gonna be fine and that doesn't preclude us drafting more defensemen this year and moving forward. Add Myers to that group.

 

I'm just thinking the opportunity to have Patrick and Hischier - our version of Kane and Toews - for the next decade plus, sounds pretty appealing. I think Sanheim is definitely worth that. Provorov, no. Sanheim, yes.

I get it. I wouldn't do this. Keep in mind that I'm writing this about 2 hours after new jersey and Philly actually made their picks. But I really don't think either player is worth Sanheim. I'll wait for better before playing that card.

      That's just the thing. We're not really choosing, so where is the pressure and where is the hesitation?    There are, by all accounts, two players above the rest. Period.    It's not like the Flyers are picking first, so they don't even have the pressure of deciding which one. They simply go to the podium and pick whomever the Devils don't. Simple and straight forward.    Maybe he is a bust and maybe he isn't. That's the crap shoot that is the draft. But we'll know

      So after 16 pages - have you guys decided who you are taking yet?    I'll stand by my pick of "whoever-the-Devils-don't-take".

      Absolutely NOT! They're about as even as the top 2 can be. You give up Ghost or Sanheim or whoever and you may not even be getting the better player.

      And a guy being a better player at a later pick doesn't make the earlier pick a bust. It just means that the ceilings on 17-18 year olds is really hard to judge. I'd have a really, really hard time describing a multiple 25+ goal scorer as a bust.
