    I remember those almost word for word, and you were spot on, as usual.

    Even if Rubtsov and Laberge end up as duds, Hart could make that whole draft worth it.

    And don’t forget our savior Wade Allison.

    I'd sign up for Bellows for Rub and LaBerge.

    I put together a rough draft of my summer Flyers prospect rankings. Once the upcoming draft is complete, I doubt Rubtsov will make my top 20. I had him #13 last year. That's without even including goalies. :(

    The collapse of Yakupov sure is something.

    Rubtsov and Kase are tough ones, both have shown flashes, neither has been able to stay healthy.

    I liked what I saw from Kase in the NHL more than Rubtsov.

    Tbf, it's always easier for a winger to step into the league. That's why Frost has struggled as well.

    I would still like to see Rubtsov and Kase stay healthy enough to get more NHL time before we have to jettison them. NAK didn't overwhelm on his first call ups, but then it just clicked. Ruby and Kase are also smart players who can skate, play D and have puck skills.

    That's the thing; forwards who are smart and defend like that don't really need much AHL development time. However you do need them to be healthy for a stretch to feel confident in them and that hasn't really happened. Hope it changes because I like both players and think they can contribute. In particular Rubtsov should be a good fit on the 4th line or anywhere in the bottom 6 with his strong defensive play and ability to play center.

    Agreed. At some point the numbers game is going to mean Fletcher has to deal a couple of the many forward prospects or let them walk back to Europe. It means we're going to have a kick butt team going forward with 4 solid lines all the time, and reinforcements from the farm at all positions.

    Rubtsov has been a major disappointment.

    I don't think that's fair. I think he's been good for what opportunities he's been given, but hasn't excelled. He's had (I believe) 2 major injuries in his Pro career and considering the center depth with the Flyers, him breaking in is tough.

    Do you think Morin is a disappointment as well? He has had a few serious injuries already and considering our blueline, it's hard to get in, even though I'd much rather him play over Hagg.

    Right. Just like Laughton.. it took him a few years before breaking into the main roster full-time.

    I think they tried really hard to fit Laughton in at center even sending him down to the ahl to work on different things only to recognize he's best at wing. I feel Ruby is the opposite. A natural center and defensive forward who may only find his offense after playing at an nhl pace and with talented players.
