I think we also need to temper the expectation a little. From what I watched of the games so far (and it has been limited) the rookies looked pretty good. I am cautiously optimistic - while they looked good, it was still the equivalent of AHL good. Many of them still have a long way to go but I like that we are looking deeper on the farm.

Oh yeah, and truth be told, some of them probably won't even make the cut at the AHL level. We're not brimming with NHL ready talent, but there are some bright spots, and its nice to see some players impress. It gives me hope that a 3rd-7th rounder might surprise and come out as a quality player.

If truth be told, over the past few years the organization has done a pretty solid job with their late round picks.

They may not have the flashiest list, but they've come away with a lot of players and solid prospects when usually teams come away with nothing.

The only recent year they didn't impress was in 08 (aside from picking Schenn obviously)...

One thing that really stood out to me at the game was that they seemed really big.  They had a lot of players out there that seemed to tower over the Pens.

With D'Amigo out there isn't a single player listed under 6 foot on the roster.

Yeah I mean it's not 720p but it's much better than the streams we get during the season.

McKegg with the tying goal with 48 seconds left.

Has to be said Gardiner had an assist because his speed allowed him to save the empty net goal against, he can fly out there, clearly a step ahead everyone else.

Frattin, Olden and McKegg with the goals so far.

Gardiner's speed on that tying goal was amazing, his d partner fell and he still got across before the forward.
