Let’s talk draft, baby

Let’s talk draft, baby

The gang might be down a man, but that doesn’t stop them from taking a hard look at what the Flyers will do Friday night. It’s draft week! Join us for the draft this Friday at Tavern on Broad for the official BSH Radio Draft Party. Prep for the party by listening to us speculate on Hextall’s plan. We also contemplate what it’d have taken to land Alex Galchenyuk, and if Barry Trotz would be a good fit to replace Dave Hakstol.

BSH 2018 Community Draft Board, No. 21: Serron Noel

Mixed feelings are abundant with this guy. Serron Noel has scouts talking due to his size, but does the power forward have the skill to make it in the NHL?

Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes… *The week of the draft is finally upon us and that means we might finally have some action in the NHL in the next few days. In the meantime, let’s continue with our series of profiles of some of the lesser-known players that will likely find themselves on an NHL team this weekend. [BSH] *And speaking of NHL action, we got a good old fashioned one-for-one trade this weekend, with the Habs sending Alex Galchenyuk to Arizona for Max Domi. The Habs fans, they’re not thrilled.

BSH 2018 Community Draft Board, No. 20: Dominik Bokk

The German winger takes the next spot in our countdown. Dominik Bokk has possibly one of the highest ceilings in this draft class, but what are the chances he reaches that level?

Learning about 2018 NHL Draft prospects: Volume 4

The draft will be here before we know it; let’s know some guys! With the 2018 NHL Entry Draft just a few weeks away, General Manager Ron Hextall and the Philadelphia Flyers could be adding up to nine prospects to the organization. There’s already a lot out there on those who are expected to be drafted in the top 31 to 62, but what about the guys who are supposed to go anywhere from 63rd to undrafted? In a series of articles before the draft, I’m going to try and analyze both the well-known prospects and some of the lesser-known prospects who aren’t expected to go relatively high...

BSH 2018 Community Draft Board, No. 19: Grigori Denisenko

The Russian winger takes the next spot in our countdown. Grigori Denisenko is one of the more frustrating prospects of this draft, he appears to have a high end skill set, but the production has yet to come. Let’s learn a little more about him.

Diamonds in the Rough: Rounds 2-4

Diamonds in the Rough: Rounds 2-4

The first round is important, but the later rounds can be just as vital to organizational depth. Could Hextall and the Flyers find a potential mid-round gem? With most of the chatter these days focused on the 1st round of the 2018 NHL Draft, I wanted to take the opportunity to shine some light on the later rounds of the draft. Every year for the past 3 years I have purchased the Black Book put out by hockeyprospects.com. They do a fantastic job of giving detailed scouting reports on every eligible player for the draft each year. So combined with those reports and the few highlights you can...

Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes… *Good news, it’s Friday! Bad news, nothing is happening in the Flyers world right now. Or the hockey world in general, apart from the Sens meltdown. The most exciting bit we have for you is Ron Hextall’s pre-draft media availability, in which he said a whole lot of words but didn’t really reveal a whole lot of substance. [BSH] *If you read between the lines of his comments, you can suss out a little bit of something, though. Maybe. [Courier-Post] *There may be nothing happening...

Flyers GM Ron Hextall talks the 2018 NHL Draft, free agency and some injury updates

Flyers GM Ron Hextall talks the 2018 NHL Draft, free agency and some injury updates

The offseason is in full-swing for the Flyers’ brass. Flyers GM Ron Hextall spoke to the media today ahead of next weeks NHL Draft, talking mostly about the draft but covering some of what the team plans on doing in free agency in addition to some injury updates among other things. Hextall, who owns two first round picks (No. 14 and No. 19), opened by saying that he anticipates making both of those selections at this time but also left open the possibility of moving up or down the draft board if the right deal came along. As has been the case since Hextall took over as general manger,...

NHL Mock Draft 2018: Philadelphia Flyers select Nils Lundkvist with No. 25 pick

NHL Mock Draft 2018: Philadelphia Flyers select Nils Lundkvist with No. 25 pick

Broad Street is buzzing. After a big trade, we’re making our third selection in the 2018 SBN NHL mock draft. Here at Broad Street Hockey, we decided to start the 2018 SBN mock draft by hanging a sign that read “Open For Buisness”. And cousin, let me tell you, business is a boomin’. We completed three trades, including this one: The Philadelphia Flyers traded right wing Wayne Simmonds to the Toronto Maple Leafs for forwards Tyler Bozak and Jeremy Bracco as well as the 25th overall pick. We decided it would be unfair to our draft pick to go into deep detail about the trade here, and a...

NHL Mock Draft 2018: Flyers make a trade with the Maple Leafs

NHL Mock Draft 2018: Flyers make a trade with the Maple Leafs

Landing another 1st Round Pick was the key, but we also feel we managed to fill a couple other holes in trading away a guy who was the heart and soul of the Flyers the past seven seasons. Our goal with the 2018 SBN Mock Draft was to provide an entertaining, and somewhat realistic, experience for our readers and for ourselves. That led to us being active in discussing trades with numerous other SBN blogs. We completed three deals, and the last one was certainly the biggest. We (on behalf of the Flyers) traded forward Wayne Simmonds to the Toronto Maple Leafs (as represented by Pension Plan...

BSH 2018 Community Draft Board, No. 18: Isac Lundestrom

The Swedish center is next in our countdown Isac Lundestrom has one of the more complete skill sets in the draft, and even though he may be considered a “safe pick”, he might be a steal in the middle to late first round.
