I like the Penguins to finish second in the Metro, and if defensemen Kris Letang and Olli Maatta stay healthy they're going to be a dominant pairing on both sides of the puck. And, oh yeah, there's a guy named Sidney Crosby and he's playing with a guy named Phil Kessel and that should be pretty darned fun. This team appears much deeper up front than a season ago.
Still lots of questions, though GM Jim Rutherford answered the biggest one by getting Phil Kessel to play with Evgeni Malkin or Sidney Crosby. The Pens should once again be one of the most interesting teams in the league to watch and headed for a postseason berth.
