Passing on Forsberg wasn't a big deal to me. In my opinion, I don't like the stats he put up in the SEL. I personally expect a bit more from a guy who was as highly touted as he was. The knock on him was that he was struggling playing against men. That's a pretty big knock. If you're a top 10 pick...you shouldn't be struggling to play against men.



I wondered the exact same thing, actually.
I like Forsberg but he needs to get a lot stronger to play his driving game against men. He kind of plays like Iginla when Iggy was the same age. I guess we'll have to see if he has that compete level to change his game around like Iggy did.

I actually liked Girgensons at 8 especially after trading Staal. I think he can be a Backes type player. Only good offensively but one of those players you go to war with.

Love the sense and skill on Grigs but I think his game is at center and moving him to wing would just lessen him. He's not a 3rd line type at all so he's just a bad fit for the Pens. I don't think he has compete level issues at all. He's just a smart skilled player that plays the slow down game.
