Interesting take on Pittsburgh needing to grind it out. Pitt has improved the Defense and they are always one trade away (before Deadline) from beefing up the Offense.
Game one tonight should be revealing.
Personally Cody Ceci isn't an upgrade on defense. But like you said, time will tell pretty fast how the Pens will look. I just truly think the way the division is set up, the Pens are going to have to grind it out this year more than other years to just make playoffs. Thanks for reading. GL
