The Flyers need to change Hextall's title from general manager to miracle worker.

Yeah it's highly likely that the top 4/5 will go that way, but outside of those it'll be a crapshoot. Like you I'm mostly excited about Provorov but would be fine with a nice forward like Rantanen or Barzal.
I have heard a lot of mixed things, mostly negative, about Crouse. Mind sharing any insight you have regarding him? From what I've heard, he's a big, gritty forward that doesn't seem to have much upside apart from being a bottom line depth guy.
Sorry I haven't been around in forever.
My insight is pretty much the same. He's controversial because his production for a potential top 10 pick is below average, but scouts rave about his game. He's supposedly a safe bet to be a NHL player, the question is what is his upside? Is he just going to top out as a third line checking forward or does he have room to grow? Some imagine him as the perfect complimentary winger to better players like G and Voracek while his lack of offense is hard to overlook for some like me. He is a good goal scorer, but I'd hesitate to take him that high. He was logging big minutes and has a man's body yet still couldn't dominate in juniors?? To me that's questionable.
I think he's probably more of a third line checking forward which really wouldn't be terrible because we need defensive forwards, but I think there are likely to be players with higher upside at 7.

Back for it's fifth season - it's the Flyers Predict-a-Score Game for the 2011-12 season. Think you predict the outcome of the Flyers games this season? Well, lets see how accurate you are compared to your FMB friends. Who will join aphockey, Kappy and two-time Champion ericmedc in the Predict-a-Score Hall of Fame? Will it be you?
It works like this. Simply tell me what you think the score will be in each game, and score points accordingly. You will score 1 point for getting the score right, 1 point for getting the winning team right and 1 point for getting the goal difference correct. This means up to 3 points per game are up for grabs. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to earn double points by predicting the All Star Game result. Further details will be available nearer the time. The person(s) with the highest score at the end of the season will be crowned the 2011-12 FMB Predict-a-Score Champion.
So, I hope you will all enjoy! Standings will be available via the link in my signature!
1. Predictions must be made either in this thread, the appropriate GDT or sent to me via PM. Predictions made elsewhere will not be counted.
2. Predictions for a game must be made before the game starts.
3. Occasionally, mistakes may occur. If you spot something amiss in the scores or the rules, let me know, and I'll sort it out as best I can. I'm only human. However, the decisions of me (or, if I'm not available, my designated subsitute) are final.
4. I will try to update the scores and stats after each game. But like I said, I'm only human, so don't worry if results aren't up immediately.
5. This is meant to be a harmless bit of fun, with nothing at stake, save bragging rights. So, please don't take it too seriously, and do not cheat. If I find you cheating for whatever reason, I will disqualify you from this game, and possibly future games.
6. Have fun!

I've been putting off this post for too long...time for some Ghost celebrations

First he gets Sam Gagner and a 3rd or 4th round pick for Grossmann and Pronger's contract. Now he's convinced Boston to give up a 3rd rounder for one of the worst forwards in the league in Zac Rinaldo. So this is what it feels like when your team is ran by someone competent!

I really want Provorov, but I fear he goes in the 4-6 range. He could be the horse the Flyers need. I'm going to be underwhelmed with a Crouse or Zacha when a potential elite talent is right there for them to try to nab. I really hope they do try to move up.

I think the only way Hexy makes a trade with Draft Picks is to move up, not down.. with the ammount of picks the flyers have anyway i dont see them trading down for more picks since they already have 2 firsts, 2 seconds, 3 Thirds, that is 7 within the first 3 rounds ... and since this is supsoedly a stacked draft... i see them picking in every slot

What do people thinks about this trade.
#7 overall to Edmonton for # 16 and #33 and #57
or #7 to San Jose for #9 and #39
The value is fine, but those deals only happen after they see who is on the board with their selection. Say Hanifin drops to 7. You don't want to be kicking yourself for moving back to #16 just to get some more picks. You only move back if you're not enamored with any of the players and believe you can get one just as good at 16. Moving back to #9 is a lot better, but you still need to see who is there before you make the move.

Rags beat Pengies in 5.
I abhor both teams but Rags are the lesser of 2 evils.

I wonder if this is really why Gagne was traded. If so, it's really disappointing.
It really would be disappointing, but in the end it really worked out good for him.

If he would have called Homer, he would have got a 1st and a 2cd.
The Lightning traded Steve Downie for Kyle Quincy(COL) then sent Quincy to Detroit for a 1st Round Pick.
Yzerman got a 1st round pick out of Downie! Amazing.

Just figured I'd cross out all the people who are now gone from the team to see how odd it looks.
I put Leino in italics, because I'm not sure if he'll be back or not.
meh, just cross him off too
