Philly Not Likely to Give Up 2nd Pick

From Ed Moran at Philly news

“We had some inquiries,” said general manager Paul Holmgren. “But we’re really in no rush to move back in the draft. The guys we want to pick with the second pick are all a notch above the other guys in the draft and we want to stick with it.”
According to Holmgren, there have been a lot of calls but most teams have just been offering other picks.
“One team called and tried to get creative - a couple of guys and that pick, or a couple of guys and this pick - but there was nothing that made sense to us.”
While it would make sense for the Flyers to trade the second pick for an established player, it wouldn’t make sense to move down any farther than the fifth- or sixth-ranked player. The draft just isn’t that deep this year.
