Stanley Cup champion Penguins greet raving fans


"I thought it was an opportunity to maybe throw out a challenge to our core players right away", Sullivan said. "That will be our goal, be our expectation".

Crosby was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player during the finals which only added to his growing legacy. "They just know how to win". The win is their fifth Stanley Cup championship in franchise history.

Fleury has seen the Penguins at their worst and he's helped build the dynasty that now has three Stanley Cups in the last nine years. Before that, the Canadiens won the four years before the Islanders' run.

They would have either had to work to trade him during the season before the trade deadline, work out a trade with Vegas to send them some form of compensation to not take a goalie, or perhaps even buy out the remaining three years of Fleury's contract and have dead money on the salary cap for several years done the line. "It's been a blast, and we're going to milk it for everything it's worth and we're going to enjoy it while it's here".

Once the fight for the Stanley Cup was underway, we saw exactly what we expected prior to each round - the numbers favoring Pittsburgh to win nearly every matchup they were involved in.

"It's a totally different season when the playoffs arrive", Reichenbach said. "We have great chance win every year". "The energy we had yesterday was one thing, but I think what we had here with our own penguins was very special", penguin keeper Chris Gaus said.

Crosby did his part to play a gracious host to the masses. His fight before that, a decision win over Pacquiao, was the richest in boxing history and reportedly made him more than $200 million. "Thanks for showing up today, and let's try to do this again next year". The evidence of Rutherford's savvy includes trading for Justin Schultz last season to trading for Ian Cole two seasons ago or acquiring Hainsey at the trade deadline this season. He not only played well enough for the team to get through the Columbus Blue Jackets and Washington Capitals, he was without question their best player and one of the single biggest reasons they advanced.

"Everybody is pretty excited about it", said Bonino.

The Penguins also won the Cup in 1991 and 1992.

After a fan handed Cole her makeshift Stanley Cup, he gladly raised it in the air in triumph.
