You got me looking down the list of the points in D1

This guy looks like he is unsigned and is turning into a scoring machine. 

 

 

Also, thinking about the draft.   Remember that Cole Caufield guy that fell in the Flyers lap?    Thank goodness the Flyers passed on him because he is sucking it up big time right now .... na just kidding, he's the 5th leading scoring (18g, 14a) in the NCCA D1..... as a Freshman.   He has over a ppg average at 1.14.    as a Freshman!   A small, little tiny guy of a freshman.  

 

Don't get me wrong, York is a good pick.  But we don't need York.  We need a high flying, shoot first winger that can snipe.  I think this one is going to hurt for a long time.

Sure not now but you figure he is a freshman too and is a few years away.

 

Caulfield is a nice goal scorer.

 

But at his size it is a big risk projecting to the NHL.

 

No one ever in the history of the draft has ever been selected his size at forward for where the Flyers drafted.

 

Defensemen take longer to develop and they are more valuable.

I guess my point is that our defense is young and should be fairly solid for the next 5+ years.   Forward is where the Flyers needed depth.   They could have taken a chance on the kid.   Is 1" or 2" really that big of difference?   I guess we should ask the ladies.... they would know.

 

Other notable small forwards.....

Henri The Pocket Rocket Richard.....5'7" 160lbs.   I think he did okay in the NHL

Mr Theoren Fleury - 5'6", 180lbs - him too

Brian Gionta - 5'7"

Mats Zuccarello 5'7"

Conor Sheary 5'8"

Cam Atkinson 5'8"

Martin St Louis 5'8" (on skates)

And Danny Briere himself.  I saw him not a little while back.  still short.  5'9"

 You could say that about every position there is in the draft, until someone takes someone like that, starting with 1st overall and Patrick Kane.

 

 I'm ok with York. But probably would have taken Caufield, Newhook or Krebs.

      Looks like they went alphabetically with the names, IMO.

      Have the Flyers found another late round gem???     6th round pick Yegor Serdyuk off to a blazing start 5 goals in 3 games so far.

      Meh...Giroux isn't big...neither is Konecny (though they can both play bigger than they are) Frost isn't...Farabee isn't...I'm not sure adding another small guy (soft to boot) to the top 6 (eventually for the latter 2) is going to benefit the Flyers playoff hopes. Teams like the Caps and Bruins would run us out of the rink.    Like RJ said, signing him as a FA is one thing (that I also won't hold my breath on) but giving up a top prospect and a 1st and whoever...pass.

      Until the restraining order was issued.   Now he just watches from more than 100 yards away.
