As much as I like him, I doubt he makes it to 20-25...

My draft dream would be everyone is scared by Galchenyuk's injuries and he falls. I doubt he gets out of the top 5, but hey, dream big.

From all the reading and research I've done, I would like us to go Swedish.

Maybe Shero will do something crazy and trade into the top 10 since the draft is in Pittsburgh.

Who knows.

Yeah it seems like that's where a lot of the first round talent is coming from & since a lot of them play for their Swedish teams it's hard to see them play.

We all know how that happened with Espo. From 1st overall, to us at 1st round.

I assume you meant to say "As much as I like him, I doubt he makes it to 30".

Did THN's draft issue come out yet? They closed my Borders, so I have no idea.

I don't really have anyone that I'm hoping for this season like Bartschi or Rattie last year and Etem or Niederreiter in 2010, but Girgensons sounds like he'd be a solid pick.

Nah... The Future Watch just came out though.

I'm hoping the Pens use a late round pick on Shaun McTigue. Completely owned D2 hockey in Jersey and outscored JVR on some travel teams. Overager but sometimes they work out.

I really like Aberg but he's kinda the anti-Shero player.

I remember seeing NHL article where their west scouts had us at the 28th pick ( ) with Koekkoek falling to us cuz of injuries. Can't remember who the east scouts picked for us though

Has anyone had the chance to watch Henrik Samuelsson? I like what I've read about him but haven't seen him play. Would he look good in a Pens jersey on draft day?

Maybe well go for Subban. The cupboard is pretty bare on goaltenders tbh. But i rather see us use a pick in the 3rd or 4th round (where we also has an extra pick) on a gaolie.

Nailers game was the best atmosphere I've witnessed in that building. Nearly a sellout, Malkamania guy was there too.

Nailers won 4-3 in a shootout. Playoffs start Tuesday.

Niagara wraps up there series with a 4-1 win. Disappointing series with Kuhnhackl posting 1+2 in 6 games.

Don't get me wrong, I like Joe morrow.

But Brandon Saad is quickly looking like the pens version of Dan Marino. Hes been fantastic this year and cranked it up another notch in the playoffs. I think we're gonna regret passing on this local boy, even if morrow ends up being pretty good.

I'll stick with Morrow who is going to be the PP QB this team desp. needs. Once he, Despres and Letang are in the lineup together, their transition game will be something to behold.

A 6'1 205 lb blue liner with his combo of mean and skill is much more valuable than a player like Saad.
