2011 NHL Mock Draft: Could Penguins Take Ty Rattie?

FOX Sports' latest 2011 NHL Mock Draft has the Penguins taking winger Ty Rattie:

All Rattie does is score and for a Penguins team in need of wingers for its sublime centers, he fits the bill.

Here's a good profile of Rattie. As a winger with offensive skills, he would certainly be a good fit for the Penguins in terms of his skill set. The Penguins are unlikely to draft for need, however, so it comes down to whether they like Rattie best. If he's available to them at No. 23 overall, they just might - Rattie easily could go higher. 

Other notable players in the FOX draft include local players Brandon Saad (No. 18, to the Blackhawks) and John Gibson (No. 22 to the Ducks). Meanwhile, Rocco Grimaldi, the small, speedy forward who some Pens fans want at No. 23, goes to the Senators at No. 21. 

The top three in this draft are Adam Larsson to the Oilers, Gabriel Landeskog to the Avalanche, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to the Panthers
