- Great selection by the Penguins. I could not believe Esposito fell all the way to #20. Once his name wasn’t called at 17, i had a feeling he was going to fall into the Pens lap. The word around Penguins camp right now is he is a year away but who knows thats what they said about Staal. The Penguins scouting department had him rated #7 on their list What a day it really was for the Pens. First the signings of Gary Roberts and Mark Recchi and then trading Chris Thorburn to Atlanta for a 3rd round pick. I was in shock when i received word of that. What was Atlanta thinking.
- Expect the wheel and dealing to be at a frenzy tommorow. Penguins are looking at all of their options right now and the 3rd round pick they received for Thorburn gave them more assets to address their needs. More rumors in the morning……
