Thats a good one but I think he's more of a natural passer than Keith and he can play a better physical game than Campbell. I'm hoping he can be something close to Zubov when he was in Dallas.
What ever anyone thinks of the pick kind of goes out the window. He's a Penguin now and IMO the Pens most skilled prospect.
Sureshot has said it best. We should make a Shero Drafting thread. Its pretty clear that its not the way the draft work out and more that the Pens go after skill on D.
I hate the philosophy but don't overly mind the players Shero has brought in so I'm in the middle. I actually haven't had a problem with a Pens draft since 09.
