Shero looked to move up in the draft

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=431963&navid=DL|NHL|Home

"We had two guys our scouts really liked and tried to move up five or six spots, but nothing worked out."

Any guesses on the 2 guys Shero and Co. were targeting?

Caron and ??? maybe?

Kyle Palmieri would be my guess.

Before NYI traded up they might've thought DeHaan would be available in the early 20s. It's all pretty much wild speculation at this point. Whoever they were I'm sure Ray has those GM's numbers on hand in case he sees some trade potential this week.

I guy who plays wing and who shoots right? I highly doubt we even gave him a sniff.

If it was Caron I am really glad Boston took him, nothing about that guy impressed me. I wonder if it was Schroeder?

I'm guessing it was a winger? Why move up to draft a D man unless the scouting staff really liked the guy.

I liked Caron from what I saw from him. I would have liked him if he fell to 30, not so sure about if the Pens traded up to get him, when there was still a lot of good talent left.

Pens also were talking about trading back, but didn't because Despres was on the board, which I think is a vote of confidence in him.

Either the deal to trade back wasn't there, or was snatched up by the Wings. They probably wanted to grab Ferraro if they traded back, but wouldn't have been able to, so they got who they thought was BPA.

I thought Ferraro said he knew Pittsburgh wouldn't pick him? Made me think the Pens weren't real high on the guy. I like him, though.

5 or 6 spots would be 1 of these.
24 Marcus Johansson Sweden C
25 Jordan Caron Canada RW
26 Kyle Palmieri United States C/RW
27 Philippe Paradis Canada C
28 Dylan Olsen Canada D
29 Carter Ashton Canada RW

If they liked picks 27-29 it shouldn't have been that hard or costly to move up just 2 or 3 spots. It had to be 2 of Marcus Johansson, Jordan Caron or Kyle Palmieri that they liked a lot.

I will if it was Schroeder. He was the guy I wanted us to get back in February when we were looking at a pick in the 10-15 range!

It was probably Caron... I myself was impressed with him, but hey, I'm going to settle for Despres.

If he literally meant only 5-6 spots, I'd guess maybe Caron, or perhaps were considering moving up to be assured of Ashton.

However, my first thought was maybe the freefalling Schroeder.

I'd bet John Moore. Not sure why he dropped other than so and so liked so and so better. Kid is just great.

Yeah I couldnt believe he was falling the way he was, he was rated as one of the top skaters in the draft, a scott neidermeyer type. CBJ got a nice pick there even after they traded back.

Given the Penguins propensity for 'Q' players I'd say either Caron or...Despres. I'm still shocked Despres fell all the way to 30 and I wouldn't have been surprised at all had the Penguins traded up to get him.
