Its funny how other teams draft and have younger guys contributing right away. Jordan Staal was the only penguin to do that for how long now? Crosby and Malkin arent getting any younger, why do we continue to spend high picks on defensemen 2-3 years away at the least then? Pouliot is considered the most talented power play quarterback in the organization, not Morrow. Was only throwing it out there as a suggestion, but once again people like to show how much smarter they think they are
People who contribute direct from juniors are few and far between, and they are usually top 5-10 picks. They also go to organizations that suck by definition, or they wouldnt be picking that high, so its easier to crack the lineup. Our picks haven't been "high" in any event, other than Pouliot, and he just turned 19.
