Future looks bright for Pens' Letang

The trio of Sutter, James Neal and Jussi Jokinen is becoming an important one for Byslma.

"They've done a good job, maybe really at times have been our most dangerous line," Bylsma said. "We've used them in the defensive zone with that line, and it's helped us play defense as well. That's a luxury to have and come back with Marcel [Goc] and Sid as your other two centermen. It's a pretty good option to have." ?

All those questions that were raised during the first round are starting to be addressed. Could Letang lift his level of play to what we've come to expect? Do the Penguins have enough depth behind Crosby to make a long run? Can Fleury stand tall under pressure?

It's too early to form definite conclusions just yet, but the evidence is piling up in the Penguins' favor after a rocky start.

"We had to learn quick, and I think we did," Bylsma said. "But I also think we're still not at our best yet."
