While we're waiting....

....for the UFA deals to shake out, the Pens resigned Kitten Fur for 2 years. I'm okay with it. He was pretty solid last year.

<span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">Penguins re-sign D Matt Niskanen to 2-year deal
The Associated Press – </span>

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and defenseman Matt Niskanen have agreed to two-year, $4.3 million deal that will keep him with the team until 2014.

The 25-year-old Niskanen had four goals and 17 assists in 75 games last season with Pittsburgh and had a plus-nine rating. Niskanen joined the Penguins in 2010-11 in the same trade that brought forward James Neal to the team.

Niskanen has proven to be a deft penalty killer for the Penguins and is considered a key part of the blue line after the team shipped Zbynek Michalek to Phoenix last week.</span>

Yep. Last year at this time I couldn't stand him. This past season he improved a lot and I don't mind him at all now.

Re: While we're waiting....

Not too optimistic about today. I still see the Wings landing both Parise and Suter and the Pens landing another washed up veteran like Sykora or Sullivan.

So they will end up losing Staal and Z and end up WORSE than last year...

Oh well, maybe not...

Jordan just got signed to 10 years @ $60 million by the Canes. And good to see Trask is his positive self.

Slightly irritating that Staal took the same deal there that he turned down here.

Re: While we're waiting....

Well gee let me see. The Pens got ripped by Hossa when he went to the Wings, and then Jagr and Talbot trolled them hard last year and signed with Philly, so optimism isn't high at the moment. Add to the fact that Philly just offered both Suter and Parise 12 year 80-90 million deals and it gives a person a sinking feeling.
