    I seriously hope you aren't actually flipping out over a 7th round pick.

    Draft is over and we probably had the worst draft of any team. Heck i thought atleast Kennedy or Talbot rights would be traded.

    Haha, in all seriousness, I know nothing about anyone drafted like 3rd round on, minus some exceptions, so I'm willing to defer to Shero and company.

    Actually, I'm happy to defer to Shero and company on every move this franchise makes. I'm just some keyboard jockey. I'm not about to pretend that I know better than them.

    Your user name makes this one of the most unintentionally funny posts I've seen here.

    Take a deep breath, it's the 7th round.

    Talbot just rejected a 3 year contract because he wants to go to July 1 and see what's out there...His rights wouldn't have a lot of value anyway but that lessens it even further. I doubt a team would give anything more than a conditional pick (if they could sign him) so why bother?

    My GOD can you imagine how much BETTER a player we would've had if we didn't trade that other, other 7th rounder for Kovy?! So valuable these late picks!



    This draft almost makes me wish we had traded both 7th rounders.

    :laugh:

    It's Junior A, a step below major junior.

    Thought that was just a rumor. Would of been happy if we would of traded Dupuis's rights.

    Yup. Beau Bennett was drafted out of Junior A at the other end of the country. Some guys go that route because it allows you to still be eligible to play in college. Major Junior prevents that.

    Of course, Bennett went to a highly respected college program. This guy, not so much.

    Junior A league in Ontario, same as what the BCHL is for British Columbia. College-bound Canadians play there because the NCAA considers the three major junior leagues "professional". The Pens drafted Nick D'Agostino out of the OJHL in 2008 before he went to Cornell.

    On the downside, Wilson is actually older than Rust and Agostino who were drafted a year earlier...

    Come on, he was the 4th leading scorer on his team in a league that is not very good. What is not to like.:sarcasm:

    I am not going to pass judgement but besides for the 1st pick which I did like I was not exactly thrilled about the picks. Time will tell. I am a Pine Richland grad so I wanted Saad because it would of been cool to have Walker and Saad both playing for the home town team. Even though I wanted Saad I can see why they picked Morrow instead. Could be a left handed Letang. He has many of the same traits.

    Even the 2nd round pick which had me scratching my head at first still gives me some hope because of his stock the year before as a projected 1st round pick.
