No. 13 – Pittsburgh Penguins

Previous: No. 1

The reigning Stanley Cup champions have played a lot of hockey the last two years.  But they’re convinced that because they didn’t have a hangover last year that they wouldn’t this year.  Sidney Crosby continues to lead this team by example, already scoring three goals and five assists.  If the Pens continue to get scoring from their young players, they will definitely be relevant come April.  The addition of star defenseman Kris Letang to the lineup after he was out in last year’s playoffs helps a lot, too.
