The Flyers may not have won much on the ice this past season, but they finally do have a title they can call their own: ESPN.com's Best Prospect Pipeline. The BSH Radio crew is here to break down that list, from Nolan Patrick to Matthew Strome. The pipeline's dramatic improvement under Ron Hextall is discussed, as is the possibility that (despite the lofty overall ranking) ESPN may even be underrating some of the kids.

That leads directly into a defenseman-heavy Top 25 Under 25 conversation, as all of Philippe Myers, Sam Morin, and Robert Hagg made appearances on the BSH list over the past week. The gang weighs ceiling versus certainty of contribution with regards to the blueliners, and takes a deep dive into their respective skillsets. After a brief detour into "will the Bruins trade yet another young star?" territory, the show closes out with a Calder Trophy discussion, and whether Flyers prospects are being overlooked in the 2017-18 race.
