Penguins fans were justifiably angered after Ray Shero selected a defenseman in the first round of the 2011 NHL Draft. But, as more research was conducted on Joe Morrow, the anger turned to excitement.

He possesses an assortment of offensive tools and steady defensive talent. For my analysis on the pick, check out my Penguins Draft series.
