Fedotenko is good as gone?


Penguins' Shero not close to deals

"We'd love to have 'Feds' back, and I talked to him for a while today and stressed that," Shero said. "He's got all our information. He knows where we're at. I'd like him to consider what we have. I'm not pushing him. I told him to sleep on it."


Shero confirmed an offer has been made, though neither he nor Fedotenko's agent Allan Walsh would divulge details.

They never do, per policy during negotiations.

However, all indications are Fedotenko, 30, will soon become the fourth free agent to leave the Penguins,
who are only $4,757,000 under the 2009-10 NHL salary cap -- set at $56,800,000.

Pittsburgh Penguins Sign Defenseman Nate Guenin to One-Year Contract
http://penguins.nhl.com/team/app/?se...ticleid=433401

Quote:
The Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins signed Pittsburgh-born defenseman Nate Guenin to a one-year contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.

Guenin, 26, becomes the third Pittsburgh native to join the Penguins organization in the last three seasons, following Bill Thomas and Ryan Malone.

The Sewickley, Pennsylvania native appeared in one game with the Philadelphia Flyers during the 2008-09 season while spending the majority of the year with the Philadelphia Phantoms of the American Hockey League (AHL), posting 14 assists along with 95 penalty minutes in 62 games with the Phantoms this past season.

The 6-2, 210-pound defenseman played 12 career games in the NHL with the Flyers since 2006, recording two assists and six penalty minutes while collecting a plus-2 rating. The gritty blueliner made his NHL debut in Philadelphia versus the New York Islanders January 18, 2007. In three seasons with the Phantoms, Guenin registered 43 points (seven goals, 36 assists) and 333 minutes in penalties while appearing in 207 career games in the AHL. Guenin collected one assist and a plus-2 rating in 12 career post-season contests with the Phantoms in 2007-08.

Prior to joining the Flyers organization, Guenin played four years with Ohio State University from 2002-2006. Guenin recorded 53 points (six goals, 47 assists) in 151 games and was a two-time recipient of Ohio State’s Ice Club Scholar Athlete Award given to the top student athlete on the team.

Guenin was selected by the New York Rangers in the fourth round (127th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

We're shopping in the bargain basement bin.


I'm still laughing at Hossa dumping the Wings and going to Chicago.

Tank is back!

The Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with forward Ruslan Fedotenko to a one-year contract through the 2009-2010 season, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.

Fedotenko, 30, scored 39 points (16 goals, 23 assists) and ranked second on the team with a plus-18 rating in 65 games with the Penguins this season. It marked the seventh time that he recorded 30-plus points in a single season. He appeared in 24 games for Pittsburgh during the post-season, recording seven goals and 14 points.

The 6-2, 195-pound winger has played parts of eight seasons with Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Philadelphia from 2000- 2009. Fedotenko won his first Stanley Cup in 2004 with the Tampa Bay Lightning, scoring both goals in a 2-0 victory over the Calgary Flames in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. The two-time Stanley Cup Champion has collected 278 points (139 goals, 139 assists) along with 369 penalty minutes in 597 career games in the NHL. He has tallied 31 points (20 goals, 11 assists) in 77 post-season contests.

The native of Kiev, Ukraine became the first Ukrainian-born player to win the Stanley Cup in 2004. He appeared in one game for the Ukraine at the 2006 Olympics, scoring one goal against Switzerland.

Fedotenko was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Philadelphia in 1999 and made his NHL debut Oct. 24, 2000 with the Flyers. He was signed by Pittsburgh as a free agent on July 3, 2008.
Deal is for $1.8 million, according to the Trib. Great signing, great price tag. The man lived up to his reputation as being a money player in the playoffs. Our top 3 lines are now set - all we need now is a 6th defenseman. I really can't believe he took a pay cut to stay here - all of the sites were saying that he was looking for a longer-term deal.

He made $2.25 million last season, which was still a bargain. The only reason I think he took the 1 year deal (which probably included a NTC) and pay cut is because he believes in the Pens' chances at winning another Cup, and the other teams didn't have the same chance. What else could it be? The Minnesota offer was rumored to be nearly double that amount over 3 seasons, and LA also offered more money over 2 years. He certainly could have taken the money and ran, and no one would have blamed him.

Also, the Pens are rumored to be after Jay McKee and Nick Boynton. McKee is injury prone, so thumbs down on him. Boynton is interesting - he'd certainly bring some toughness to the blue line, but defensively he isn't the best. Plus, he's a bit of a loose cannon. It would be something to see what would happen if he did come here - he didn't have very kind words for Crosby after he jumped Brett McLean of the Panthers back in January.

He gave us that much of a Stanley Cup discount? ...excellent news!!!

OK. We've got 13 forwards now. That's enough. unless Shero can add another 2nd liner for cheap.

We only have 5 D right now though. We need 2 more + a backup goalie.

After that, call it an off-season.

to Tank for taking a hometown discount to stay with the Pens! I've loved this guy since he donned a Pens uni!

I see that Curry is still out there as a FA. I believe this kid is ready to step up to the big leagues and be a viable backup to Fleury. Hurry up and sign him Shero before someone else grabs him up.

Apparently, Tank said he really didn't have any great offers out there (despite the rumors), so he decided to take the Pens' offer. Doesn't matter what his reasoning is, I'm glad to have him back


Also, the Blue Jackets just re-signed their franchise player, Rick Nash, to an 8-year, $62.4 million deal, an average of $7.8 million per season.
