Lord Stanley's Cup future

Posted on: June 1, 2008 10:52 am
 
With the hockey season almost over and it most likely will end on Monday when the Detroit Red Wings win a decisive game over the Pittsburg Penguins at the JLA. The Penguins need to step up their game if they want to beat a impossible to beat home team especially in the playoffs. Crosby is young but he has the talent and the skills to lead this young pittsburg team and take them to glory and hold Lord Stanley's Cup,But it will not happen this year and if they do want to hoist the cup next year they will have to do a lot of transactions this coming offseason because of all the UFA they will have and they should start early come July when they can start talking about contracts with their outgoing players. The Red Wings on the other hand will be just coming off a Stanley Cup Championship and I believe they will be contenders again next season but they will most likely slow down a bit because the team is aging and needs to start peeking on the rebuilding phase because within 3 seasons they will have a lot of retirements. Chris Chelios will most likely retire within that time frame and so is Lidstrom. I don't want to say I live in the past but I wish number 19 will play again. For both clubs the future is on the Pittsburg Penguins side and I do believe they will one very soon.
