The 5 Best Draft Picks in GM Paul Holmgren's Tenure with Philadelphia Flyers

Paul Holmgren has made a ton of moves since taking over for Bobby Clarke as the Philadelphia Flyers GM in 2006. One thing he has not gotten enough credit for is finding great prospects in the middle and later rounds of the draft.

His best picks have actually mostly been later than the first or second round, and more than a few of them have already contributed to the team as young role players. 

A couple of others are still waiting in the wings and have a lot of potential, especially compared to where they were drafted, which is my focus here. I'm not looking necessarily at  the best players he drafted, but the actual best picks. 

With the draft just a week away, it's time to take a quick look back at Holmgren's past and pick out his best draft selections as the Flyers' GM.
