This year he ranks Pittsburgh 3rd behind the Detroit Redwings and Montreal Canadiens. SUCK IT, Detroit -- you get the "Kevin Allen jinx" this year (too bad for you, Hossa)!!
Here's what he had to say about the Penguins:
3. Pittsburgh Penguins: I’m not sure I believe Miroslav Satan and Ruslan Fedotenko can make up for the loss of Hossa and Ryan Malone. But I do believe that Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin can be among the scoring leaders even if they had a trained chimpanzee on their wing. The Penguins will be in the Stanley Cup mix as long as Crosby is captain.
