He's committed to the University of Denver, so he won't be with the Pens for the next year or two at least.
He's a scoring winger that needs to bulk up in size.
Overall, it's good to have a talented winger in the Pens' system.
No idea whats going to happen. All kinds of guest. Join us for our coverage of the NHL draft in LA.Add a comment
In a continuing summer series, we take a look at what went wrong this season. Rather than do one giant post about the 2009-2010 season, we figured we would just break it down into pieces. One painful step at a time.
Not really a big deal, but kind of interesting.
Last season Evgeni Malkin was snubbed for the league MVP depsite being the Art Ross winner, and you know, the most valuable player to his team.
There are a lot of great Penguin blogs on the Internet. Over the summer we're asking some of those blogs to guest post over here. It's a great way to discover a new blog you may not be reading and it's easier than having to come up with our own material...
Today we are happy to bring you Jesse from Faceoff Factor and his yearly draft preview.
As always, the guys at Pensblog have asked us draft geeks at Faceoff-Factor to stop by and provide some insight into the upcoming NHL Entry Draft. This is, without a doubt, our Christmas. Knowing that, Pensblog Charlie actually screen-printed matching "Team Taylor" and "Team Tyler" shirts for Mike Farkas and I in preparation for the Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin sweepstakes. (I will personally be sporting the Team Tyler shirt come Friday night.)
Shameless self-promotion, us folks at the Factor will be releasing our full, in-depth top 30 ranking shortly as well as a complete first round mock draft. Last year we mocked three rounds and it proved to be an absolute disaster so we're trying to tone it down a little.
So, once again, thanks to the guys here at The Pensblog for giving us the forum. We figured we'd throw a few names at you in terms of players we think the Penguins could and should look at when they step to the podium this year.

He's banged out beastly Homer-esque comments with a high level of consistency.
The first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft kicks off on Friday night, 7:00 PM on both Versus and NHL Network, if you get either or both. Rounds Two through Seven take place on Saturday.
The Pens are picking 20th in the first round. They’ve got no second-round pick, the cost of allowing Jordan Leopold to grace Mellon Arena ice for a couple of months (and maybe more). They’ve got their regular picks in the third through seventh, plus Toronto’s sixth-round pick.
For shits and giggles, the Pens pick just ahead of Detroit in each round. It’s probably the result of some Gary Bettman-engineered grand scheme to prop up his Penguins at the expense of those damned Red Wings.Add a comment
