You are not worried? You do not have to worry becuase Pens is the best team in the East and arguable in the NHL with Malkin and Crosby back.
You're absolutely right. There should be no doubt how good they can be as long as their defense is healthy, MAF is playing well, and Bylsma is coaching...then add in Croz, Geno, and Staal. They almost won the division last year with 2/3rds of their AHL team playing in the big league.

But I won't count out our chances against them, healthy or not. We have a dangerous team if they decide they want to win a game. We're close to having our own AHL team up in the NHL right now.
