I'd love to see this.....but I dont know if they can do it with the defense. Pittsburgh's defense should be among the league's very best....in a year or two considering we have probably the deepest group of high level defenseman prospects in the league, but none of them are really ready yet, so the 2013 unit will likely continue to struggle. Despres will play this year....likely on the third pairing, but guys like Morrow, Harrington, Dumoulin etc will require another year of seasoning before hitting the big leagues.
I do expect Robert Bortuzzo to surprise this year though. Not sure if the rest of the veteran group can be relied on for a Cup run.
