2018 Flyers Draft Recap (PST Show #267)

The 2018 Flyers Draft is now in the books. Frankly, it was a rather uneventful draft for Philly as General Manger Ron Hextall didn’t make any brash or surprising moves this past weekend. To dissect the results of the Flyers picks, we brought onto the show this week Bill Matz, cohost of Broad Street Hockey Radio (BSH Radio) for a great interview and discussion. What might these picks and their talent bring to the team, and what does this Flyers team look like moving forward?
But first, on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. Might the Phillies be ready for primetime? (5:45)
2. Sixers Talk: our thoughts on the draft results, and whether or not Markelle Fultz should play summer ball. (11:10)
3. How important is LB Jordan Hicks to the Eagles defense? (21:55)
4. Which Philly sports team would we want to be the GM for? (25:45)
Then we get into our Up or Down segment where we briefly analyze Philly sports figures to determine if their needle is moving up or down. (32:00)
What we’re throwing down on the Table is a fantastic and lively interview with Bill Matz from the BSH Radio podcast. First, we asked Bill his thoughts on how Ron Hextall did this year in the draft. From there we dove into the talent acquired: Joel Farabee, Jay O’Brien and goalie Samuel Ersson as well as other talent. What might the Flyers do with impending free agency to help propel this team to the next level?
During the upcoming season, are we going to be “stuck” with the goalies we know all too well – Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth? Can the Flyers realistically acquire talent that would be an upgrade from Val Filppula at the 3C? All of these questions and much, much more this week on the Table. (39:55)
