Super 16: Penguins start season at No. 1

Lightning second with healthy Stamkos; McDavid, Oilers round out top five

The Pittsburgh Penguins were always going to start the season as the team to beat in the NHL. That's what happens when you're attempting to three-peat as Stanley Cup champions.  

But considering what the Penguins have done, they also get the distinction, or potential burden depending on the point of view, of being the team picked to be the best in the NHL before a single game is played.
