Why? They are two completely different types of prospects. Acquiring Dumoulin had NOTHING to do with who the Pens picked.

Also, this board is becoming infamous for their Grigs love. The Pens weren't the only team that passed on him, and if it weren't for Buffalo's weakness in size down the middle then who knows if they would have taken a chance on him either.

The fact is, he is a prospect just like Pouliot, who is having a tremendous year in Portland. He's SECOND in scoring among D-men playing in a much tougher league than the Q.

Pens fan can ***** and moan about the pick because it's not who they wanted, but to take anything away from Pouliot is stupid, and claiming Grigs as the greatest thing since sliced bread is even more stupid.

The Penguins don't need big centers. And even if Grigs could play RW at the NHL level, that doesn't change the fact that the Penguins have very valuable assets on the backend. Pouliot, Dumoulin, Despres, Morrow, Harrington, Maatta, Bortuzzo. There's a reason Pierre almost **** himself during the 2012 Draft.

The Pens have proven they can develop defensemen (and a lot better than forwards). They've also shown that they can flip those developed D-men for wingers a la Whitney and Goligoski.
