<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Dmh1055</b></div><div>Professional Scouts watch these players at a young age and not one saw enough in Myers to take him in the NHL draft. With his size and the all important Right Handed Defenseman they still all passed. You're allowed to be bullish on Myers and you should be as a Flyers fan just like the team is on him. However, it's also important to be realistic and not overvalue him. He didn't go undrafted to suddenly a make or break piece in a Seth Jones level trade. It's foolish to think you're suddenly outsmarting everyone for a superstar level talent. He exceeded expectations got an NHL contract and even made the team. He performed well as a rookie as a #4. He's in 2nd year and has not performed well enough to be a #6 on a team with severe lack of RHD. The undrafted prospect stigma and his poor performance this year state a lot about what his floor could be. The team prefers to play more LHD than to play a RHD available to them. Myers showed last year when paired with Sanheim as a second pairing he's capable of being a #4. This year he was asked to be a first pairing RHD and did not succeed nor has he been able to revert to his #4 pairing status. I believe and hope he's having a sophomore slump. That being said, I hope he can get back to being a #4 but I'll settle for him being on the 3rd pair consistently. I do not believe he's a top pairing defenseman on a quality NHL team when he's playing his best game.

Sanheim and York will be in an NHL lineup top 6. That's their floor, which should be expected of a 1st round pick. They have a ceiling that says they can be a #1 potentially but mostly like a #2 defenseman.</div></div>

What an absolute idiotic statement all around. I guess guys like Marty St. Louis, Kunitz, Rafalski, Oates were all absolutely worthless in a trade for their entire career because they were undrafted. Give your head a shake bud.
