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?
This. Puck-moving defensemen hold higher value than forwards. I have a feeling that Pouliot will be traded eventually for a proven forward since we already have Morrow.
