Looking at the Pens' bottom 6 forwards

http://www.puckprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=1596

This article looks at a key part of the Pens. Many commentators have remarked on the paucity of talent coming through WBS to boost the forward corps. There are some players still in Juniors as well as in the NCAA.

One key point made is:

Since 2007, the Penguins have drafted just one forward that has appeared in more than 35 NHL games for them, Dustin Jeffrey, a player who has been relegated to healthy scratch status for much of the season. That is how you have to end up using Tanner Glass and Craig Adams on your third line when a couple of forwards are injured.

The Pens have mitigated this by doing a good job signing undrafted FAs such as Letestu, but the roster has been hollowed out by the impact of the salary cap. To maintain their position as contenders, they will need cheap help from their draft picks.
