I'm really looking forward to hockey.

I haven't seen any pre-season predictions, but I'm sure Pens fans are looking for a 3 peat. That would pretty much solidify the Penguins as the team of the decade, followed by the Hawks and Kings.

Bruins will get an honorable mention for sneaking in a Stanley Cup win.

Hurricanes return to the playoffs after 8 long years in the wilderness. Book it. Best D in the NHL, very promising goaltender Scott Darling plucked from the Blackhawks. Justin "Mr. Game 7" Williams returns to a team he helped lead to a cup victory 11 years ago.

And we get Jonathan Tavares via trade or FA next summer and then contend for a cup year after year.

Obviously I'm a little biased but I think they have already solidified that with 4 trips to the finals and 3 wins in the last 10 years including the first B2B since the salary cap and currently 11 straight playoff appearances.

That being said I think the 3peat is unlikely but anything can happen. Last year I really thought the Caps were going to take it as they have the talent but I think their biggest problem is leadership; was really hoping they would trade OV and give the C to Backstrom or TJ.

Wouldn't be surprised if Toronto or Nashville take it this year.

The Blue Jackets would sure say yes. Time will tell. At 5 plus million he better be.

Objection your honor!

The defense is dipping into the previous decade.

That said, they have definitely been a presence throughout all of those years you mentioned. Winning it this year would put them over the top. Of course, if the Blackhawks go on to win another one (or maybe two)more before the decade is out, the Pens will have to relinquish their place in line as the team of the '10s.

The hockey gods are quite clear on that.

I'm just thankful Bowman was able to made a trade for Saad. A key component to the Blackhawks Stanley Cup runs in 2013 and 2015. They're going to need him with Marian Hossa out for the year, and probably permanently.

Enjoy the Pens victories while they last. Because once Jim "These is the Times" Rutherford is done emptying out the cupboard to squeeze every last FA dollar he can out of the NHL, they are going to crash and burn hard. And then you'll need to fire him because although he is great at making moves when he has nice pieces, he is shit at drafting and developing.

He left a mess in Raleigh that has taken years to recover from. We're still paying Alexander Semin's buyout, for instance.

Nothing worse, in any sport, than holding a bad contract. It's like an albatross around a team's neck.

I recall when the Hawks were trying to trade Bryan Bickell, and the only way it happened was when they packaged him with Teuvo Teravainen to the Hurricanes.

I would really like too see a Penguins/Blackhawks Stanley Cup final, hopefully the Hawks can regain the form that has won them 3 Cups and get past the first round this year.

Especially those pesky Predators.

Its sad what happened to Bickell. Even though he only played a few games for us, the community and Hurricanes treated him like a champ when it was found out he had MLS and gave him a great sendoff.

That being said, we are glad that
#AllYourBlackhawksAreBelongToUs

TT
TVR
Darling
Stalberg
Kruger
And we had Nordstrom and Versteeg for a while. We were Red Wings South for a while, now we are Chicago South.

Darling will put us over the top this year.
