Where did you find BUF's and WSH's top 10 lists? I'd be interested to see who's on it because if their lists excluded the top 5-8 players that would be gone by the time they picked it means much less that DP was on BUF's. IIRC WSH wasn't prepared for either Fors or Grigs because they assumes they'd both be taken.
I didn't say I have total faith in Shero and co. Just that it's all a wash to me, so I might as well be a bit more optimistic about the Pens' picks since that's the team I root for -- if anything adopt an "innocent until proven guilty" mentality. I'll assume DP was a good pick until he shows me differently, and so far he's developing as expected. Crapping on a pick right after it's made is just stupid.
And information leaks. It's the same way we know Shero tried to move up in the 2010 draft to pick Tarasenko but St. Louis had the better offer.
And you're way, wayyyyyy off base with how teams build their lists. Every team starts at the top, from #1, and works their way down. Pens, Buffalo, Washington.... they all started from Yakupov (presumably) and took it from there. That's just how it's done.
