  • They finally Did It

    The Flyers just got passed by the dysfunctional Ottawa Senators and are now officially the worst team in the NHL in 31st place. Some have asked how low the Flyers can sink as an organization well they just sank to the lowest ,eight goalies later they've done it. When will ownership wake up and clean house top to bottom and start over? The Flyers better not blow this chance to get Jack Hughes. If youre going to stink at least get something positive out of a dumpster fire season. Somehow they will blow that too. I cant believe the state of this team. Not the Flyers I grew up with and loved because of how competitive they were every year. Im a fan since 1973 and this has to be the worst team of all time after the 2007 version. Just sad.

    Based on last year's odds, the 31st-place team has only a <20% chance of drafting first overall.

    And, just for reminder perspective (including the top lottery loss on their list), see:

    Oh, and now with lottery selections for the top-3 picks, the 31st-place team is actually most likely (just slightly over 50% based on last year's odds) to pick fourth overall.

        my worry is that for any UFA..we are going to have to seriously overpay..and will have to eat a lot of salaries in trades..is Jake worth 8 MIllion a year right now? hardly...so the problems could perpetuate themselves

          The only fortunate thing is this year, the draft seems to be at least 4 deep (Hughes, Kakko, Podkolzin and Cozens)...I know you never know with prospects, but I’ll take the projected depth we are seeing in the mocks among the top 4 picks. It doesn’t appear to be a Kane/JVR type of year...at least we can hope not.

          The Flyers needs a dynamic player with their top pick...Cozens and Podkolzin look really intriguing to me!

            Didn’t Kaako score the game winning goal in the World Junior gold medal game? Anyone know of he has sniper traits or is just a “2 way player?” Lol

              I think I'd rather have him that Hughes if we had to choose:

              " Big Finnish man child with above average size, speed/skill sets. Although is still in need of weight room strength, in both the upper and lower body, he already thinks and advances the puck at a high level and fearlessly drive the front. Moves and stick-handles at top speed, and displays an excellent snap shot. A big kid who maintains possession with his strong hands / stick strength. Strong North-South skater with excellent burst, agility and hockey vision. Can project as a future NHL centre for some clubs seeking a big pivot, but is a perfect fit as a big fast scoring option who plays with a solid playmaking NHL centre. "

                this site has us picking 3rd and taking Dylan Cozens

                https://www.draftsite.com/nhl/player...-cozens/30041/

                Difference making power centre-wing with great wheels, powerful wide base and stride, motor, powerful shot and ability to use his hands to quickly take possessions and make plays. A big power player who will play in traffic every shift and do with some nasty. His veracity in puck battles along the boards makes it necessary to “double cover’ him. Very strong on his skates and shows added explosion on the attack, while being able to pass the biscuit with precision and touch. Point per game WHL rookie last season who is committed as a 200 foot player armed with deadly shot selections. This man child isn't through filling in or building his muscle. Makes everyone around him better. Will cause problems in front, or from the perimeters. Fluid non-stop player who plays hockey smart and would fly through a wall to help his team win. Can project as a big centre as well as a big wing. The sky’s the limit.

                    That dude is almost 6'3", Cozens
                    Here's my question, if the Flyers get the #1 overall, do they take Hughes, or trade down to get one of these two guys and get a major amount of picks, to boot?
