Keven Veilleux at 4 for forwards? Above Agostino, Hanowski, and Uher? Dislike. Sounds like some WBS bias to me. I'd personally have him just above Paul Thompson.
I like the D list, but don't let Jesse see D’Agostino below Grant and Sneep.
Now to clear my browser history so no one sees that I went to a sight called "Bang Bodies." My firewall displayed a message saying "WARNING: This is NOT a porn site. Are you sure you want to proceed? I just don't want you to be disappointed is all."

The Pens have been widely touted for their growing stable of Defensemen, but having been in attendance at the scrimmage there are some significant prospects to watch in Bennet, Blueger, Agostino, Marcantuoni, Uher and Zlobin. These guys all have at least one asset that they can build from and make an impact in the NHL.
The fact that we were missing Kuhnhackl and Hanowski makes the forward stable even better.
I don't know that any of these guys are ready now, so in comparison to Despres and Morrow the forward stable is a year or two behind, but we clearly have a decent group of prospects that can feed us 2 or 3 forwards for the top 9 a few years down the road.
The gap at forward that needs to be closed via trade using our D is smaller than many believe. I was particularly impressed with Blueger and Marcanuoni. One has amazing skills and the other has very good skill to go with amazing wheels.
Agostino is another very intriguing prospect who seems to do everything well.
BB gets a pass because I know his wrist is still not right, but his skating is a bit of a concern.

To everyone that read my stuff this past week (and at any point in the past for that matter), thank you very much. I really appreciate it. The reception these write-ups have gotten over the years is the main reason I keep doing them, and they've led to me getting some credentialed access over the past year. You guys rock.
