Pens general manager, Ray Shero, has been a busy boy the past week!!! Trading, resigning, and acquiring players oh my!
So…who is gone? So far just TK. He’s heading off to the San Jose Sharks. The Penguins were able to get the no. 50 draft pick.
Tanger…oh Tanger. He wants the money. He’s kind of reminding me of Talbot. Rumor has it the Pens are offering him $58 million for 8 years. Nothing is set in stone yet. He has one year remaining on his current contract valued at $3.5 million. The Norris Trophy nominee as best defenseman in the NHL will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the upcoming season, and the Penguins have made no secret of their desire to lock him up long-term.
There is still no word about Dupuis. The Pens obviously want to keep him, but can they? After extending Malkin for $76 million for 8 years they’re on a tighter budget now.
Craig Adams is in negotiations. From what I’ve read he wants to stay. Hopefully a deal can be reached and he’ll be a Pen for a lot longer.
And the last bit I’ve gotten so far is that they picked up goaltender Tristan Jarry from the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.
There is still time for contracts to be signed, people to traded, and others to be acquired. It’s all wait and see now.
