I do wonder what has happened to Umberger's value. Other GM's must be thinking, here's a guy that 2 organizations have taken a long look at and decided to pass on. He'll be asking UFA suitors to make a far less educated choice than Sather and Burke did, yet still pay a premium. That doesn't sound like a very appealing package to me.

In the end, it probably won't matter. RJ all but announced he was going to sign with Pittsburgh during his workouts with the 'Pack. I just can't wait to see if he Craig Patrick have the same "hometown discount" in mind when it comes down to negotiations though.
