Re: 2009 Free Agency
 
With some of these guys most likely being resigned and playing for Pittsburgh, I'm curious to see who's going to playing for the Baby Pens up here in Wilkes-Barre. I'm most interested in the goalie since John Curry is most likely going to be the back-up for Marc-Andre Fleury.

Rob Blake. WOW didnt even know he was still playing.

Re: 2009 Free Agency
 
Rob Scuderi is the most important free agent they need to sign. He is "the piece" afterall

They'll figure out their wing situation. There might be some free agents from other teams that want to come play here. We will re-sign Zigomanis for our 4th line center and keep Talbot in the top-6. How about we bring back Kovalev!!!!!

Hopefully Gill is a goner

oh well, atleast he played well in the playoffs

not re-signing Hossa really threw a monkey wrench in their plans last year. They had to settle with signing Satan and Fedetenko to 1-year deals.

This time around they will have a better plan on who to sign and also their farm system is a lot better. I trust in Shero
