So, usually every year, I like to try and guess what the outcome will be. I polled a couple writers from the site and we decided to take our chances. I also like to look at what I believe the Penguins will accomplish this season with the new cast of characters and the extra time off after the quick exit from the playoffs last year. I like to think of us as the team to beat this year even though everyone and their Mom is thinking Washington. The only reason they are thinking that is because the Capitals haven't won yet, despite all the regular season success. They are the Eastern Conference's version of the San Jose Sharks.
