The NHL Draft kicks off tomorrow night in Philadelphia and the Flyers could be preparing for some fireworks in front of their hometown fans. Winnipeg Free Press' Gary Lawless reports the Flyers are the most aggressive team trying to move up in the draft. Lawless adds he "wouldn't be surprised if Ron Hextall and the Flyers steal the show and trade up to No. 1 and draft [Aaron] Ekblad."
This isn't the first hockey reporter (the other is also Canadian) to predict the Flyers will make a trade with the Florida Panthers for the top selection and take the defenseman Ekblad.
For the record, this is an ideal scenario in my eyes for the Flyers. The idea of this excites me but temper those expectations because nothing appears imminent just yet.
