The Philadelphia Flyers
 
Luca Sbisa
Meet Luca Sbisa, Philadelphia's 2008 first-round selection. Ranked 11th heading into the draft by ISS, Sbisa plays very well at both ends of the rink and can run the powerplay and lead the penalty kill. He has the size and skill to go along with great playmaking abilities. He's not entirely a physical blueliner, has very good ice awareness, is very mobile and has great potential.
