I think we'll start to see the fruits of Shero's drafting this year, in fact. Despres has been mentioned as a possible partner for Letang, Strait and Bortuzzo will be playing somewhere in the NHL, Jeffrey and (hopefully) Veilleux should finally be healthy, and Bennett and Morrow could surprise a few people in camp.

As for forward prospects, like I said - trades, injuries, and college draftees with longer development paths play a big part. That's to say nothing of the Pens spending most of their high picks on defensemen.

More to the point though, as long as we can move other assets to acquire scoring wingers, what does it matter whether we have a bunch of scoring wing prospects?
