Pittsburgh Penguins: 7 Bold Predictions for 2011-2012

The Pittsburgh Penguins might just be the most balanced team in the NHL going into 2011-12.

 Coach Dan Bylsma has said he thinks this club is better than the one he had last season.

That's a pretty strong statement, considering last year's team won 49 games (second-most in franchise history).  

But he does have a point; the Penguins have since added quality point-scorers Steve Sullivan and James Neal to their lineup, Marc-Andre Fleury and Kris Letang are coming off their best statistical seasons, and Malkin and Crosby will be fully rested and hungrier than ever for their second Stanley Cup Trophy.

So here are my seven predictions for the 2011-12 campaign. Some are bolder than others, but all are optimistic.  

After all, the Penguins and their fans deserve to have high hopes for the upcoming season.
