Video- Season Preview For The Pittsburgh Penguins

from Wes Crosby at NHL.com,

The new-look Pittsburgh Penguins are trying to win the Stanley Cup for the third time in five seasons.

To have a chance to do so, they will need to replace forward Phil Kessel and his offensive production. The Penguins traded Kessel, who had 303 points (110 goals, 193 assists) during his four seasons in Pittsburgh, to the Arizona Coyotes for forward Alex Galchenyuk and defenseman prospect Pierre-Olivier Joseph on June 29, two weeks after trading defenseman Olli Maatta to the Chicago Blackhawks for Dominik Kahun, a 24-year-old forward.

Pittsburgh is confident adding Galchenyuk and Kahun to a roster that still has defenseman Kris Letang and centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin could minimize the impact of losing Kessel, who turns 32 on Oct. 3.

"We've changed the makeup of our team," Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said. "Now it's training camp and the time where the coach (Mike Sullivan) will have to work hard to put it all together."
