In the 2010 draft, the Penguins had their eyes on Vladimir Tarasenko, the Russian star ranked as a top 5 talent but fell in the draft due to KHL concerns but none of the teams below the Penguins would let them trade up to select him.
Shero then tried to trade back in the first round to select Bennett but none of the teams wanted the Penguins to gain any additional picks.
