Same here. Mark this one down as the first mistake Shero has made since coming here.

The 2.28 million is coming from the NHLPA's website under the Penguins roster.


It has Recchi listed as 2.28 million with the Penguins.

All I'm hoping for is that the NHLPA site is incorrect. If not, this will turn out to be a very, very disturbing signing.

They would be the first to know the terms of the deal after it's signed, so there's a good chance it's correct. But I'll wait for the official annoucement and hope that they are wrong, because that's a ridiculous contract.

Pens sign another "character guy:"

PENGUINS SIGN RONALD PETROVICKY
07/24/2006

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed right wing Ronald Petrovicky, it was announced Monday by General Manager Ray Shero.

Petrovicky, 29, recorded 20 points (8+12) and 62 penalty minutes in 60 games during the 2005-06 season with the Atlanta Thrashers, ranking second on the team with 109 hits.

Petrovicky also appeared in six games with Slovakia at the 2006 Winter Olympics, scoring one goal and recording two penalty minutes.

The 5-11 and 190-pound native of Zilina, Slovakia is a veteran of five NHL seasons, posting career-best numbers in 2003-04 with the Thrashers, scoring 16 goals and recording 31 points in 78 games. He ranked fifth on the club in goals and seventh in points during the 2003-04 campaign.

Petrovicky has played in 311 NHL games with the Calgary Flames, New York Rangers and Atlanta Thrashers, recording 86 points (38+48) and 401 penalty minutes. Petrovicky was originally drafted by Calgary in the ninth round (228th overall) of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.

Recchi to return to Penguins
Monday, July 24, 2006

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Penguins are expected to announce tomorrow that winger Mark Recchi is rejoining the club, getting a one-year contract worth $2.28 million.

Recchi, 38, who was part of Penguins' 1991 Stanley Cup team, got his name on the Cup a second time last month, this time with the Carolina Hurricanes.

After 13 seasons with Philadelphia, Montreal and the Flyers again, Recchi returned to the Penguins last season and had 24 goals, 33 assists for 57 points in 63 games before he was traded to Carolina in March.

He had four goals, seven points in 20 games for the Hurricanes during the regular season, seven goals, 16 points in 25 playoff games.

Recchi was an unrestricted free agent.

In addition, the Penguins today signed checking line winger Ronald Petrovicky to a one-year, $450,000 contract. He had eight goals, 20 points last season for Atlanta and played for Slovakia at the Turin Olympics.

I don't know what the hell Shero was drinking at the time, but it must have been some good shit. Because I can't think of any other way he signs Recchi for that much money. It just doesn't make any sense at all. I suppose if he comes back and doesn't act like a jackass in the locker room, it could work, but it's still way too much money.

Nice to see this after the wait. Why exactly Craig Patrick never signed a goalie coach long-term after they drafted Fleury made absolutely no sense to me......

Penguins promote Meloche to goaltending coach
Thursday, July 27, 2006

By Shelly Anderson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Gilles Meloche, a former Penguins goaltender, today was promoted from scout to goaltending coach.

Meloche, who played the final three of his 18 NHL seasons with the Penguins, served in the dual role of scout and goaltending coach from 1989-2004 before his duties were scaled back to just scouting amateur players.

"Gilles brings a tremendous amount of experience and passion to this position," first-year general manager Ray Shero said in a statement. "We think he'll do a great job working with our goaltenders here and in Wilkes-Barre, and in assisting our scouting staff in the evaluation of goaltending prospects."
