I agree with what Darth said early on in the thread, I think the Pens use this pick.

Adding to the reasoning is that the Pens have no player like Malkin in the system. They have some center prospects who could pan out, but no one of Malkin's pedigree.

It depends on how the teams have guys ranked. I think that the Penguins like a lot of teams have the Ovechkin gap Malkin gap Olesz/etc ranking, so they keep the pick unless their socks are knocked off with a deal.
