It is asinine for people to correlate the draft picks to the performance of the NHL at that time. Obviously they are not going to impact NHL performance right out of their draft year. So many other factors to consider. [mod] It wasn’t even the OP’s point about performance....but looking at the current Flyers, these draft picks are the reason why the Flyers are sitting in a playoff spot. And the next ten years are set to be better than the last.
