I think the consensus is the Pens will be changing to a 2 forward, 3 defenseman 5 man unit in the next few years.
Letang Orpik Despres
Pouliot Morrow Dumoulin
Martin Niskanen Engelland
Harrington Maata Bortuzzo
Seriously though, I think it's a good pick because Pouliot will be a good player. They have to love the Pouliot/Morrow combination BUT there were other players ranked much higher by numerous analysts that would've addressed organizational needs.
The only thing that matters though is what the Pens organization thinks. Shero has had a track record for turning D into forwards for us.
