Who Will Be(PA) Available at #29? And who should be taken with that pick?

The title contains a play on words relating to the nature of the BPA (Best Player Available) and I guess to a lesser extent the fact that the Flyers are located in PA (Pennsylvania). Anyhow, let's assess exactly who will be available with that selection. And then who should be taken out of the remaining candidates.

Nope (5)

McJesus
Eichel
Marner
Strome
Hanifin

Extremely Unlikely (8)

Provorov
Barzal
Werenski
Crouse
Meier
Konecny
Rantanen
Connor

Unlikely (7)

Svechnikov
Pavel Zacha
Daniel Sprong
Nick Merkley
Jeremy Roy
Brock Boeser
Colin White

20 Players who, barring unique occurrences to varying degrees (Colin White for instance could drop to 29 but I think it will be unlikely), will not be available with the 29th selection in the 2015 NHL draft. Therefore, the list of BPA's at that point seems like the following (not in any order).

Oliver Kylington
Jeremy Bracco
Anthony Richard
Dmytro Timashov
Roope Hintz
Anthony Beauvillier
Rasmus Andersson
Veeti Vainio
Suomi Seb Aho

A pretty appealing list of players. There are indeed many others candidates at that range. Though the list becomes a really long one.

Who do you think should be taken at #29 by the Philadelphia Flyers?
