Chance of Winning the Stanley Cup: 13 percent
The Cup is coming back to Pittsburgh.
Similar to the Blackhawks, it is truly hard to find a flaw in the Penguins this year.
They went out and acquired basically every big-name player available at the deadline to stack a roster that was already stacked.
They can essentially score at will and also are a bruising tough team. They rank first in the league in goals per game and second in power play.
The scariest news for the rest of the NHL is the announcement that Sidney Crosby has been cleared to practice. The timetable for his return is still uncertain, but with Sid practicing, a return is expected to come sooner rather than later.
One aspect where the Penguins do struggle is their penalty kill. The best chance a team has at beating Pittsburgh is to get it in the penalty box.
Even if you do that, though, the Penguins can still outscore you.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will raise Lord Stanley's Cup when it's all said and done.
