The Pens will win the cup next year because Sid will be out to prove he is stil the #1 player in the League. Geno will be out to prove that 2011-2012 was not a fluke. Marc-Andre Fluery will have a chip on his shoulder for getting blamed for the Pens losing to the Flyers when MANY of the goals that beat him in the first 5 games were either lucky or fluky. Game 6 he was awful. Letang will be better. Staal will get an extension and build on his performance from last year. Simon Despres, Brian Strait and the other 5 young prospect Defensemen will be better.
The Pens won't win the Cup next year if Sid gets hurt again. If Letang doesn't progress. But mostly because the Pens can't find a spot for Martin and Michalek and the 9 Million dollar CAP Anchor that they have will be too much to overcome.
