Sure, he's a project, but his upside is tremendous. He's not even afraid to be physical as well.
He's got the perfect skillset that we need. So does Dumolin and Maata.
Everyone complains over not getting who they want, but the fact of the matter is, what does this team need?
Shero is taking the approach that they started in Nashville. Home grow your defense. That approach will work out perfectly.
3-4 years from now, this defense will be extremely talented, deep, and most importantly scary.
Mix that with a Crosby, Malkin, Neal,
, who are in their prime and BOOM!
Every hates it now, but they'll rescind the hate later on.
And what if said bolded player doesnt sign with the Penguins, we lose out on Nash and we lose out on Ryan? Then the Penguins gutted out 2 core players for Sutter. Thats a big downgrade.
