I had the chance to watch the Penguins pre season game versus the Carolina Hurricanes and they came out shooting. Phil Kessel, who acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs in the off-season had two goals. Kris Letang, who suffered a concussion and a stroke in the last two seasons had a goal and 3 assists. Ollie Maata who dealt with shoulder injury and cancer last season had a goal and assist. Sidney Crosby, who had a great season picked up where he left off had a goal and two assists. Sergei Gonchar, who was signed to a tryout contract had a goal and might make the team. The Penguins had a lot of injuries last season and that derailed their playoff chances. If this team stay healthy and Marc-Andre Fleury has another great season they could be a Stanley Cup contender.
