In a stunning and complete 180, the Penguins suddenly have a bright future regardless of how the team's current postseason journey ends.

No depth.

No speed.

No direction.

No identity.

No chance.

For almost a year, there was some skepticism that the Pittsburgh Penguins could sign their 2012 NHL Draft second-round pick, Teddy Blueger, before June 1 of this year.

Had Blueger not signed with the Pens, he would enter unrestricted free agency with the ability to sign with any team, following June 1.

The Steelers opened the preseason as the odd-on favorite in the AFC North, but injuries and suspensions could open the door for a still-talented Bengals team and Ravens squad looking to rebound from a disappointing 2015.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
