As requested by Dangles78, we will have any talks of the 2013 draft here. Other will be solely for Pens prospects. And the 1st question will be who you would pick with the 1st overall pick. I picked Mac, versatility is a big thing in hockey. He could either be a winger for Sid or be a center when Sid or Geno is hurt.

Isn't MacKinnon the consensus best player available? plus he can play wing which is a huge bonus.
Mac was the consensus #1 coming into the season, but Jones and especially Barkov are having great seasons and could pass him up before the daft. Plus Druin is blowing up, and could conceivably push above 4th where ISS recently jumped him to.
It's really looking like a 2003 type year in which a handful of players could have gone 1st overall, and star talent was available right through the mid 2nd round when Patrice Bergeron and Shea Weber were selected.
Assuming the Pens pick in the 15-30 range, I'd like for them to take a look at Morgan Klimchuk of the Regina Pats (WHL). Seems like a great all-around player and leader. Descriptions make me think of a Loui Eriksson type.
