Really like it. Despres is the safest pick. The guy seems like he's only got 3-4 potential tops, or a great 5-6, but he looks like a bonafide NHLer. With Letang our future Gonchar replacement, and Orpik locked up from here to eternity, what we need is to get guys who can be great at their smaller roles. If you have the best 5-6 group in the league, it gives every other pairing a hand.
Yes i think Pittsburgh got a steal, Saint John is a terrible development team, and Despres has so much upside it is sick...with a new coach next year, Despres will get his development for sure, this guy is going to be better than letang for Pittsburgh in the future.
Satified with MPS, but extremely unhappy that Schroeder fell all the way to a division rival.
I could say the same ...happy with Shroeder but extremely pissed that MPS fell to a division rival. Did Edmonton fans, in their wildest dreams, consider the possibility of MPS at 10? I heard Glennie was the popular choice pre-draft.
