Now that the Pittsburgh Penguins have gotten Rob Scuderi back, they now have four great defensemen on their team. I will explore what I think the top two lines will look like.
The top defensive combination should be Scuderi and Kris Letang. Letang needs a partner that can help him not turn the puck over too much. He also just needs a partner that can just balance Letang out and help him defensively. Scuderi and Letang should work very well together this coming season.
The second combination will most likely be Brooks Orpik and Paul Martin. Paul Martin is also one of the best defensemen the Penguins have and a lot of people said he was at his best during the 2013 playoffs. Brooks Orpik is another solid blueliner. He is very physical and still throws hard body checks. He doesn’t score much or dish out assists but he doesn’t need to for the Penguins. I also look forward to watching these guys play, too.
