Let's look at this a bit closer... 

 

#2 overall pick

2007 - JVR

2008 - Drew Doughty

2009 - Victor Hedman

2010 - Tyler Seguin

2011 - Gabriel Landeskog

2012 - Ryan Murray

2013 - Aleksander Barkov

2014 - Sam Reinhart

2015 - Jack Eichel

2016 - Patrik Laine

2017 - Nolan Patrick

2018 - Andrei Svechnikov

 

Anyone from that list you would rank below Patrick and JVR? Murray is the only one, I'd say.

 

Svechnikov has more points than Patrick, and he's an 18 year old rookie. 

 

And from Patrick's draft year, Hischier is ahead of him (almost double the production), but also Pettersson and Heiskanen (as a D-man), and both those guys are rookies this year.

 

You could say the common theme is that we had the #2 pick in poor draft years... or you could say the common theme is the Flyers. 

In retrospect, should Patrick have spent one more year in juniors?  Wondering if it was really fair to go from missed junior season due to injury straight to the NHL.

It couldn't have hurt.

 

Don't think anyone has been over developed in juniors.

 

Myself i think the Flyers more Hextall wanted him in Philly more so their doctors could keep a close eye on him.

And that's a good call, because the Flyers medical staff is well-known for top flight player medical care.

      Hard to watch Pettersson light the NHL on fire with 25 points(14 goals) in 25 games...       ...and then we watch Patrick and JVR (who is signed for 4 more years) display absolutely zero chemistry...ZERO!   And i don't understand JVR/Patrick/Simmer on the same line who play such similar games...

      Yes, but then he stayed in no man's land, staring off into space. He was in a position to cover no one at that point.    Bad pass from Couturier initially, but then bad decision on coverage by Provorov.

      He was cherry picking is what he was doing...and they lose so it's on all 3 of those guys...not sure why you wouldn't start Giroux out here so he can play the most during OT if it when the distance....isn't of the sloth Coots....
