Pittsburgh Penguins 2012 Stanley Cup Champions
The Pittsburgh Penguins are your 2012 Stanley Cup champions! Or at least that's what the headline will be when the NHL playoffs play their final day. It is all but certain, and it has become tradition on this blog to declare a championship winner before the trophy has been awarded, though it didn't help last year's Vancouver Canucks or this year's Detroit Lions (whom I jokingly declared champion in week 5 of the NFL season). That being said, Malkin, Crosby, Fleury, and Letang is a powerhouse combo that no team can match. Really the best antidote is to hit them in the chin as often as possible and hope to put one or more of them to sleep.
Karma can be a bitch...
But remember Boston and Philly, "you can't put a bounty on a man's head!!!"
