    I just think it would be cool if the Flyers had a player named K'Andre

    He isn't my ideal selection at 19, but if Hextall selected him I'd be fine with it.

    I like his upside and I continue to preach going for a safer pick at 14 (Farabee, Hayton, etc) and a big upside guy at 19.

    I’m cool with Farabee at 14. Hayton....not so much. His feet give me pause and his shot and scoring chance results from Mitch’s sample are less than ideal. There’s some interesting tools there. However, I’d be more comfortable if he generated shots and chances well in comparison to his teammates.

    I’m pretty set on Farabee and Berggren and that’s who we’re picking, it’s been decided.

    That info is really interesting, but it's only seven games. That's a tiny sample size.

    Sample size is definitely worth noting. I watched around 20 Soo games this year and this data backs up the eye-test. For whatever reason, the team got outshot and outchanced quite a bit with him on ice. Unfortunately, we don’t have deployment info (zone starts%) for these kids like NHL teams do.

    I do. He’d get outshot and outchanced quite a bit in the 20 games I watched of the Soo this season.

    Did you ever get back to @Patrick Division about why you are fine with the Flyers selecting Hayton now after criticizing his pick in the mock draft? Just curious.

    I can't figure out which name is worse: Patrice or K'Andre

    Miller is probably the only defensemen that could realistically be there at 19 that I wouldn't be too dissapointed in drafting. Still think forward value will be better there. Trading back to pick up another 2nd and then drafting Miller would be perfect though.

    Considering the tools that Miller possesses, I wouldn't count on him being available in the 2nd round. Hockey Men love them some big bodied defenseman!

    I'd be pretty disappointed if the Flyers took K'Andre Miller in round 1. There are too many players I like who will be available, and I consider Miller more of a 2nd round caliber player this draft. He just doesn't do it for me. I'm generally not a fan of taking guys with size and athleticism who still have to learn the game that early in the draft. If they take a defenseman at 19, I'd rather have Sandin, or even Samuelsson. But even they wouldn't be my top choices at 19.

    How many really big defensemen actually turn out good ? Loads of them turn out to be pylons and are selected way too early due to their size.

    For me Farabee for sure. Haven't decided on the other.

    I'm just curious as to why you changed your opinion after giving him a hard time.

    Read up on him and watch some video on him. If you're still not interested, thats totally your prerogative.

    Who would be your ideal picks at 14 and 19? Sandin has skating issues and Samuelsson has pretty substantial discipline issues. Out of those two, I'd take Sandin because he's extremely smart and is very solid in the transition game.
