Evaluating how Bob McKenzie’s draft rankings impact the Flyers

Bob McKenzie released his midseason draft rankings today, and they contained some interesting tidbits. There were players who were ranked shockingly high (Sebastian Cossa of the Edmonton Oil Kings), surprisingly low (Aatu Räty, the Finnish forward formerly hyped to be the crown jewel of this class), and confidently within consensus (Dylan Guenther and Matthew Beniers). For anyone who is a #insiderrrr, this list is incredibly useful; McKenzie has been quite accurate historically and usually reflects the draft boards that teams around the league have. So, as Flyers fans, what exactly do these rankings mean?

If the Flyers lose out, what would happen?
