I agree on the BPA philosophy, but they haven't stuck to it. Yes, he could end up being a Goligoski or better, but hey, they could have had their Neal or better taking the actual BPA at their pick. Most had Pouliot going in the early to late teens at best, um....the Pens were picking "8th" basically turning that pick into a early to late teen pick and everyone else moved up a slot.

It saddens me they didn't even think about it or take the time to look over the board. They had complete tunnel vision/blinders on.

I'll bet had they picked Matta at 8th that Pouliot was still there at 22nd. At least that would have been reasonable and more easily swallowed.
