CP selected both Letang and Goligoski.

Everyone here is aware that pre-draft rankings are imperfect. But you have to be absurdly confident in the Pens foresight to claim that taking a guy (Pouliot), at a position of strength, who is ranked lower than a player (Forsberg), in a position of need, in almost everyone's rankings.

It is not wrong to question this pick. At the very least they could have picked up more assets by moving down.

Shero and Co. are not omniscient.
