Why yet another defenseman? They already have GoGo ready to step in, and Alex Grant and Brian Strait aren't that far away from the show themselves. The Pens need potential top-6 winger depth - I'm not a fan of having to keep going out to find guys in FA to play with Sid and Geno. At some point they're going to have to promote from within, and other than Tangradi and possibly Caputi, they don't have anyone who really stands out.

I'm surprised they didn't pick Buddish. That's where most of the Mock Drafts had him going.

They said they were going BPA and Despres was definitely the best left. You never know 2-3 years from when he would be ready, Defense could be a need again. Our third rounder is the other is the highest point scorer in Minnesota HS history.
