I hate that reasoning, but the Pens drafting record suggests it's more than plausible.

Wouldn't every team that has a prospect playing on the same team as a draft-eligible player have an "inside track" on him? Who's to say they aren't just being swayed by familiarity at the expense of better prospects on other teams?
