NHL Draft 2011: Power Ranking the Pittsburgh Penguins Best Picks from 1991-2010

Jags can't scoff at this draft pick ranking because he doesn't make an appearance.

The NHL Draft will take place June 24th and 25th in Minnesota. Much of the emphasis for the current day Pittsburgh Penguins will be to (hopefully) upgrade the system's depth on the wings.

Over the past 20 years, the Penguins have seen some great players skate for them. Many of these players were drafted by Craig Patrick or Ray Shero.

With the focus being on tomorrow's stars, it seems like a great time to look back at Pittsburgh Penguins' drafts past. The following slide show is a power ranking of the best players selected by the Pens, regardless of where they blossomed.

If you are wondering why I went from 1991-2010, basically I decided to take the chicken's route and not have to decide where to rank Jaromir Jagr. With that being said, there are sure to be some rankings that you disagree with, but this is all in good fun.

Any omissions or mis-rankings are not meant to be an affront to a particular team or player. It is a long summer without hockey. Without goofballs like me making lists, it would be even longer.
