Forsberg was gift wrapped to us when he was available at #8. It just seemed too perfect not to pick him. So any disappointment from me is more to do with that, than any actual knock on Pouliot as a player.
Penguins aren't the only ones who passed on Forsberg and I am sure he dropped for a good reason. He won't be crossing the pond for 1-2 years anyway and who knows what will happen by then. You can tell by the other prospects drafted and trades made, Shero is planning on fixing the winger problem. Might as well build an elite defense alongside that.
