Flyers picking best player available

If you believe the Flyers, Director of Scouting Chris Pryor says they’re selecting the best player available come June 26th in Sunrise, Florida.

 Sam Carchidi tweeted some more tidbits from his chat with Pryor.  

The Flyers will definitely be receiving an impact player at 7th overall, who that is remains to be seen.

The top five seems locked in Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, Noah Hanifin, Dylan Strome, and Mitch Marner. If Philly doesn’t make it the priority to draft a winger, my top three would look like this.

1. Ivan Provorov (D, WHL): 15-46-61 in 60 GP

2. Mathew Barzal (C, WHL): 12-45-57 in 44 GP

3. Mikko Rantanen (RW, Liiga): 9-19-28 in 56 GP

Odds are New Jersey takes one of those three, Crouse, or Pavel Zacha with the 6th pick.
