Sidney Crosby's hometown to get another taste of Stanley Cup

The Chicago Blackhawks have won three Cups in the salary cap era, none of them in a row like the Penguins. "But we always said, 'Nobody said that you can't.' And our guys were determined". It was certainly more stressful for me this time around.

They now have three championships each and the tendency on the day after the Stanley Cup is presented is to bring in the word dynasty, define what is in these new financially complicated times, and try to figure just how set up the championship team is to win more crowns. If they can hold all of their players together before October rolls around, and get right back into the swing of things, they shouldn't miss a beat from this year's postseason success. "At 6'3", Sundqvist is a big, talented center whose size and skill could make him quite valuable to the Penguins.

"I always say best organization, unbelievable team", Malkin said.

"Your goal is to win every year and our team just had a collection of guys that knew how to win, knew how to find ways", Crosby said after picking up his second straight Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. You need everybody. You never know when your number is going to be called. "He put them in some key situations, and he knew those players and believed in them". We get that video review helps make that happen.

For Guentzel, he will most likely be seeing his first season start in the National Hockey League.

Pittsburgh's first pair on defence was Brian Dumoulin and Ron Hainsey. But if Pittsburgh could repeat this season with a banged-up roster and one of the hardest paths to the final series, the Penguins have earned the right to be considered favorites again next season, when the team could cement its status as one of the NHL's great dynasties.

If the Penguins trade or lose Marc-Andre Fleury to the expansion draft, they would have an additional $5.75 million to play with. Fleury will nearly certainly play elsewhere next season and defenseman Justin Schultz is a restricted free agent but may have played himself into a contract too rich for the Penguins to match.

While Fleury stepped in while Matt Murray recovered from an injury, it was once again Murray who pushed a team that was routinely outshot and outchanced over the hump.

"I think there's so many good things that we learned as a group - how to play, how to come together as a team and how to believe in each other", captain Mike Fisher said.

Crosby finished these playoffs with 27 points in 24 games and now is tied for 10th all-time with 1.11 points per-game in the post-season (minimum 50 games).

On the blue line, Pittsburgh could lose Trevor Daley, who averaged more than 20 minutes per game this season.

The defending champs had an impressive run to the Stanley Cup, and are quickly becoming the hockey equivalent to the New England Patriots or the Golden State Warriors: a team so dominant year in and year out, they can legitimately and consistently compete for a championship. "What he went through previous year and stuck with it as a team guy".

Boughner's only previous experience as a head coach came in the Ontario Hockey League with the Windsor Spitfires, over two stints spanning eight seasons. He carried us through two rounds in the playoffs and turned it over to Murray.

"I think they proved what they're capable of".
