Some prospect rundowns coming from the Penguins' site about camp. Fact is, Alex Goligoski is getting the same sort of attention that Kris Letang was receiving before the start of last season. The only thing that tends to sway more in favor of GoGo is the fact that the Penguins are obviously starting the season short a defenseman.
