Miller was just an example. I know we dont have had a lot of high picks in recent years. But surely we should have been able to find at least 1 forward who could contribute on his ELC.

not if Shero keeps drafting dmen . Maybe Hanowski could be a dark horse, he's going to turn Pro at the end of this season but I imagine he'll need at least 1 year in the AHL.

This is what happens when teams concentrate largely on drafting defensemen with their top two picks most years. Since Shero has taken over, these are the forwards taken in the first two rounds by the Pens (since the 2006 draft):

2012 - Blueger (52nd overall)
2011 - None
2010 - Bennett (20th overall)
2009 - None
2008 - None
2007 - Esposito (20th overall), Veilleux (51st overall)
2006 - Staal (2nd overall)

Five total forwards over 7 drafts; one was a slam dunk, and one was dealt to acquire Hossa. Which leaves 3 forwards drafted since 2006 in our system (2, now that Veilleux seems to have lost his chance).

Look around the league at the majority of the impact rookies or ELC players. Yes, there are some diamonds in the rough (which we've also not really had either), but the majority of them are former 1st or 2nd round picks. So it's not surprising we don't have any youngsters on ELC contracts making contributions to our forward ranks when the Pens don't put much priority in selecting them high.

Edit: Heh, I guess this is more a discussion in the prospects thread. Oops, thought that's where I was when I quoted the post I did.

The trades this season have been wacky. Keaton Ellerby and Ben Lovejoy both for 5ths and Tim Thomas for a second??

That second round pick is conditional and will most likely not go to Boston. They had to throw something in.

Even if TT would suit up for NYI, the drop of the cap hit for Boston is worth more than the pick.

it may be 6-0, but the Leafs~Habs game is just one you have to keep watching because you just know there will be more stupidity.

Max Pach feels he was bit by Grabovski.

Well maybe don't put your barehand on someone's face and try to face wash them.

Another meltdown by the blues. Let's see if they can bounce back in the third.

It looked like Grabo couldn't breathe. I would of gnawed through his arm Walking Dead style.

Montreal defense: Biting is bad
Toronto defense: Don't have your hands near other people's mouths

...and round and round it'll go.

Kind of funny, the Habs looked bad even in their fights but they'll get credit for that cause at least they're not soff. Strange sport sometimes.

Haha, I just came back to post the same. I totally agree. Someone cuts off your breathe, you are going to do whatever you can do start breathing again.

Main board meltdown.

You would think the Leafs and Habs iced teams filled with thugs.

I'm sure Sidney Crosby or Matt Cooke were somehow responsible for the shenanigans in the Montreal/Toronto game. HF logic suggests as much.
