There's no chance Faksa is around anywhere near where we pick. He'll go higher than 16, so we'd have to move up a lot to do that, and I don't see that happening.

I think in this particular draft, I could see the Pens taking a flyer on a guy just because of one particular attribute: Samuelsson's bloodlines; Athanasiou's skating ability; Wilson's size/physicality; etc.

If there was ever a year to take a goalie in the 1st round, this is probably the year, considering we're picking outside of the top 12-14 (or anywhere you want to draw the line where the top forwards & Dmen will go). Especially if you're talking BPA strategy...
