Magic number at 29...

Blues continue their winning ways, and Kessel is getting closer and closer to donning a Pens uniform.

They actually passed up Chicago last night

Chicago losses are now in the mix. Blackhawks are coming on strong.[/list][/list][/quote]

I'm not sold on the Pens getting Kessel... They need a D.. either trade their high pick for one or draft the best dman available.

Short term, it matters very little who they pick. Neither is read to step into the NHL this fall. Kessel might get to the show a year ahead of Johnson, but he's at least a year away, maybe two.

Either pick another great player at first overall or trade down to 7th or 8th and pick forward Nicklas Bäckström, a great swedish player, who's been playing great in the SEL at an age of 18 this season.

Still I'd love to see the Pens draft Eric Johnson. Can't have too many good young defensemen.

Either way, we're in for an exciting summer once again. =)
