There are pretty much 4 players right now who are considered the elite guys, Johnson, Kessel, Toews and Staal. Either of them would be a great pick.

Exactly - and it's embarrassing that our team is once again looking at a last place finish, and some of our fans are rooting for it....

I don't want our team to turn into the Bengals, drafting in the first few slots overall every year, and making the playoffs every 20 years - and the hockey hall of fame is full of players drafted 5th-10th overall.
Looking forward to the draft is fun, and we should get some reward for the season we've all suffered from, so it's all good.
Let's go Pens!
