The Penguins were repeating Stanley Cup champions this past season and have won their third Cup since 2009. This team knows how to win and it isn’t likely they’ll stop collecting Stanley Cup victories anytime soon.

Penguins’ captain Sidney Crosby teased a ‘three-peat’ after his day with the Stanley Cup this summer but he wasn’t the only one to predict more wins for the Pens.

Pittsburgh Penguins president and CEO David Morehouse revealed, during his day with the Cup, he thinks the team can win more. Morehouse cited the team’s owner, GM, coach and players as the reasons for the Penguins’ success, and he isn’t wrong.

More Victories Ahead For Pittsburgh Penguins

Morehouse isn’t the only one who sees more victories ahead for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins have a strong organization that is capable of great things, as we’ve seen, and they aren’t ready to turn in the towel yet.

The Penguins dominated their competition in the NHL last season. Pittsburgh was the highest-scoring in the league and was in the top of the league for their wins and powerplay percentage. The Pens had 10 players who recorded over 30 points in the season and an additional five players who cracked 20 points.

The Penguins are a high-scoring team and have a roster with some of the most gifted forwards in the NHL. Between Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel, the Penguins are equipped with dynamic offensive talent. These three players alone could sustain enough production to keep the Penguins ahead, especially alongside the team’s defense.

Having both a successful offensive and defensive system can sometimes become a balancing act; it isn’t always so easy to perfectly balance a team’s talent. Luckily for the Penguins, Pittsburgh has a very balanced team. The defensive talents of Kris Letang, Ian Cole and Brian Dumoulin, among others, are some of the team’s most reliable d-men.

Stanley Cups in the Near Future

Whether the Penguins notch their ‘three-peat’ or not, the Stanley Cup won’t be without the Pittsburgh Penguins for too long. Even this coming season, the Penguins are still one of the strongest teams in the league and have good odds of being Stanley Cup champs again.

This team has all the workings of a successful team, as we know in their championships and the management only adds to the success. Coach Mike Sullivan changed everything for the team and turned their talent into wins. Not to mention, GM Jim Rutherford has done an excellent job of putting together the right pieces.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have everything they need to continue being a winning team. Coach Sullivan is an excellent coach; he knows how to organize his team in the best way for them to win. He was one of the biggest factors that turned the Penguins around because of his gift for giving the Penguins the best direction in getting the upper hand.

They Aren’t Done Yet

This team isn’t finished winning and it is easy to see that the Penguins will be grabbing more victories soon. The Penguins are one of the strongest teams in the NHL and it’s undeniable that this team can keep winning.
