Dang, I hate when they pick us first. This year is a toss up, due to the short season, but I can't wait!!!

The Rangers look a lot like a one line team.

Nash Richards Gaborik
Hagelin Stepan Callahan
Kreider Boyle Pyatt
Rupp Halpern Asham


Good Defense and a great goalie is what makes them tough. Pens top two lines should be able to outscore their top line. Pens third line might even out score the Rangers second line. Heck, Dupuis had more points than anyone on the Rangers second line and he played the majority of last season without Crosby. Cooke had more goals than everyone on the Rangers except Nash, Richards, Gaborik, and Callahan. Offensively the Pens look to be the vastly superior team on paper.

Question is are the Rangers good enough defensively and in net to make up that difference. I guess we'll find out. I know going into the playoffs last year the Rangers (their fans anyway) wanted no part of the Penguins.

The Pens are definitely contenders, top 8 for sure. Anything more than that is all hype, though. I don't really think that there is a whole lot that separates the top tier teams, especially in the east.

Wait... we're actually upset that someone picked the Pens to win the cup?

Meh these penguins suck. I almost wish there was like a work stoppage, or something that would keep hockey away this year.

I hate that we lost Staal but I like the addition of Vokoun - if he is a strong backup this year we're a better team.

Oh, I thought they were actually doing that to someone. Next you're going to tell me that the popcorn dumping between periods at hockey games is staged. Get real...
