Draft Trade

I would say after the U18's, Malkin is def. our pick at #2. But what about our 2 2nd round picks. One thing I wouldnt mind us trying to do is move up into late first round with one of our 2 rounders and other pick(s)/player(s), and grab Radulov. I liked him before the start of the season when was considered a mid-2nd to early-3rd. However, he has shot up the boards into the 1st round. He could go anywhere from 15-30. If he fell to say 23-24 or so, I think I would consider moving up to grab him. Offensive flare, decent size, and is a player. Was considered a prima-dona before this season, but I think to some extent he has dropped that from his resume. Wonder what it would take to move up 8 spots into the 1st round?

I would give up Rico Fata for that pick, only due to the fact that I can't stand seeing his bone head spinning moves that don't ever work.

I would trade Fata too. That being said, I dont see him and a 2nd moving up into the first.

I think Fata has a trade value of zero.

I really like voleshenko or however its spelled. He seems to be in the mold of Surovy. Shoot and score. We need more goal scorers, we have enough role players.

Till The End Of Time told me "Fata has the trade value of Zero" and I replyed with the Naslund/Stoinjov trade in refrence to that ALL PENS fans had the same view on Naslund back then.
Nobody could have predicted that Naslund was going to grow-up and be one of the most leathal scoring threats in the NHL, if some says they knew.....Thed be lying.

Naslund had 52 points in 66 games the year we traded him (as a 22 year old). He then evened out till 2000-01 when he had 75 in 72.

My point is, we knew he was talented then but CP was looking for grit going into the playoffs. Like the Sens the last 2 years, trying to pick up grit and depth.

Anyway, no one complained then because we had Mario and Jagr; if Naslund was the center of a young team it never would have happened.

Still, arguably the worst trade in our history (even though we would have had to trade Naslund down the road anyway).

52 points then was the equivelant to like 35 today.

Solid, but unspectacular. He was underachieving.

That said...I was a huge Naslund fan and cried the day he was traded...

Any chance Nokelainen will not be picked in the first rd? But then again for some reason the Pen's rarely ever draft players out of Finland.

Surovy is way more talented then Voloshenko

If there is anyone out of Finland id like to see the penguins pick, its Lauri Korpikoski. The guys been on fire the last half of the season.

Radulov on the other hand has been hot for a while. This guy has great upside and I could see him going anywhere from 10-20.

I think the Pens will indeed use players like Rico Fata and their 2 second round picks to move up and pick a player like Radulov.
Imagine him and Malkin and Anshakov.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Pen's pick him either, but as things stand I really hope they don't use our first 2nd rd pick on him.
