1) How many elite can't miss prospects have blown the NHL away? (ie Lecavalier? Nope. Spezza? Nope. Kovalchuk? Pipped Spezza at the draft and has been brilliant etc). For every prospect that lives up to potential there are more that don't.

2) Who said the #1 is going to the Pengs. There is at least a 50% chance it doesn't.

If Overchkin becomes everything he is hyped to be AND the pengs pick drafts him then may Gagne, Pitkanen and your 2nd isn't enough. But Gagne, Pitkanen and your 2nd is a hell of a lot for give up for a 25% chance the pick turns out.
