good point



meanwhile

we have tons of young defensive prospects - time to use them, I say


"Pouliot is mobile offensive defenseman with good passing skills, vision, and an accurate shot. He also possesses vision and on-ice awareness that is through the roof. Not a particularly imposing physical presence on the blue line, Pouliot needs to add considerable strength to his relatively lean frame. He also needs to improve his explosiveness, particularly in his first step, and learn when to make the simpler plays."

sounds a lot like Letang when he first came up.....bring on the baby Pens!



and we have our core locked up for years

Kunitz/Crosby/Dupuis together forever - I guess that's not a bad thing



still got money left - next either deal Jokinen or let Cooke leave.

Jokinen signed a 2 year contract, so he's good till next year (when they'll let him walk). They'll sign Adams and let Cooke, Iggy, Morrow, and Murray pound sand. They may sign Eaton, but who knows. Isn't really going to be any room after that. Pens are sitting on just over 4 mill in cap space right now.

I don't know why everyone wants to get rid of Cooke - he had his best play in the playoffs, in fact he was one of the few that showed up at all against boston

I don't want to get rid of Cooke...I just think there's a strong possibility of him being a cap casualty. Adams is too important on the PK, IMO, and takes far fewer penalties. Could probably switch Eaton with Cooke though...one of them will be gone.

It sounds like the Pens are going to try and keep Cooke over Eaton...which I'm ok with. We'll see in the next day or so.

As of 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Shero was able to start negotiating — though not finalizing — deals with other clubs' players set to become free agents Friday.
“The way I see this happening is we're waiting to hear back on our guys, and one phone call from them could change things in a different direction,” Shero said.
Shero has presented contract proposals left winger Matt Cooke and forward Craig Adams, though he declined to divulge terms of the Penguins' offers.
Each of those players can meet and/or speak with interested clubs for the next two days.

• The Penguins have not held negotiations with wingers Jarome Iginla and Brenden Morrow or defensemen Douglas Murray and Mark Eaton.
• Players tendered qualifying offers before Tuesday's deadline were forward Dustin Jeffrey, defenseman Robert Bortuzzo and winger Harry Zolnierczyk. Also, these prospects: goalie Eric Hartzell and forwards Paul Thompson, Brian Gibbons, Zach Sill and Riley Holzapfel.
