They are much stronger chips in the system than some random offensive player would have been. And are far more valuable now than they were when drafted.
Even given the benefit of hindsight, who would the Pens have drafted other than Morrow or Harrington that would have been better picks?
I hate playing the what if game and have learned to just let the guys who are paid good money, do their jobs.
Now if they take Aberg even if a good blueliner falls, I will be just as happy with that. Apparently this kid can be ready in a couple of yrs.
