8. Philadelphia Flyers (from Columbus Blue Jackets): C Sean Couturier
Before yesterday the Flyers weren't even picking on Friday, now they leave with a guy that was once considered the best prospect in the draft? That worked out pretty well. Should help fill the hole down the line left by Richards and Carter. Two thumbs up.
I dont buy the argument that they didn't think they could win it all with the lineup they had either. They went to the finals last year and ran into a buzzsaw this year. I cant knock the goalie upgrade but IMO they paid a steep price for that.
Derek Mathers made a rapid impression on the OHL in his debut season as a 17-year-old and quickly made a name for himself as one of the toughest players in the league in picking up 27 fighting majors. He was selected in the 7th round, 206th overall by the philadelphia flyers.
