Oiler dynasty scary? They couldn't tie those Oiler teams skates. The penguins "depth" is overrated. Jordan Staal was underrated while he was there. Guys like Sutter, Kunitz, Dupuis, Cooke, etc will not be able to replace what J.Staal can bring to the table. The Rangers have a better more talented top 9 and thats without them possibly adding Doan or Arnott. Pittsburgh's offense must not have been that scary when Philly played them because that didn't stop philly from making pittsburgh's defense abilities and goaltending look like an AHL squad. Having Neal, Crosby, Malkin, and Letang will only go so far. That's great they have talented offensive players but where's there defense? Oh that's right they invested too much money in their forwards that they can't afford to put even just average defenders out on the ice.
Pittsburgh should be ranked behind NYR, BOS, and PHI where they belong.
