Big news in Penguins land. With Hossa not coming back, Ray Shero suddenly had a wad of cash in his pocket.
He used said cash wad. From the good fellows at Faceoff-Factor:
MAF. 7 years, $35 million. $5 mil a year for a stud overall number one pick? Worth it.
Miroslav Satan. 1 year, $3.5 mil.
Ruslan Fedotenko. 1 year, $2.25 mil.
The Fleury contract was a bit of a surprise, and I’m not opposed to snatching two former division rivals from the Islanders. Hell, everything worked out with former Devil Petr Sykora.
Both Fedotenko and Satan are left-handed left wingers. Seems like the Pens will have the same recurring problems with hardly any right-handed shots. Sure, we signed a right handed RW in Eric Godard, but he’s a fourth-liner who is filling in the goon role.
Still, some good news after the Hossa bullshit.
