Sadly, me neither. Pens have too much speed and talent unfortunately.
They are totally beatable as they have major weaknesses, but you have to take it to them with better skating or grind it out forecheck. In theory Boston could do it, but they aren't playing well enough for me to see it happen. West teams definitely should be able to exploit them.
I'm still holding out hope that somehow the Broons take care of the Rags.......
I am not sure anyone in the East is beating Pitt at this point. Of the teams in the Isles had the best shot. Broons on paper have the best shot but Julian can't get the paper team to actually play up to the NHL 13 ratings.
I don't get how anyone can seriously think the Rags will beat Pitt. They are going to be so dog tired, and Pitt will out skate them every night. Right now only the Bruins (maybe) and almost all the west teams can beat the Penguins.
Bruins can totally out bully and beat the Rangers. They have the pests to annoy the **** out of the queen, the big bodies to out muscle their guys, and the talent to score. They just need to show up...something they have trouble doing.
