Polling the consensus gives Gaunce, Hertl, Skjei, Vasilevski, and Lindholm from 20-24.

Vasilevski's a goalie and Hertl has skating issues, so I would be surprised if either of those guys were on the Pens radar. Lindholm sounds like an Erik Karlsson type, high-risk/high-reward, raw offensive defenseman (I wonder how much his stock is being helped by Karlsson's play).

Gaunce brings size, intangibles, and packs a solid scoring punch. I would be surprised if he were around at 22ish. Skjei sounds like he was made in a Ray Shero wet dream: American defenseman with high-end skating ability, but doesn't use his size as well as he should.
