Which team is the Duke University of the NHL?

Emily Kaplan, national NHL reporter: With full disrespect to the other 30 teams, my answer is the Pittsburgh Penguins. This goes beyond championships, though both teams have won plenty of those recently. (This would be a far better comparison if the rival Philadelphia Flyers had won as much as the University of North Carolina has recently. Oh well.) The Penguins and Blue Devils also drive -- according to everybody else -- a nauseating percentage of national media coverage.
