Report:Umberger picks team

This article in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette says RJ Umberger will announce which team he is signing with on Saturday

It will not be Pittsburgh.

So much for the hometown discount theory

The Flyers and Maple Leafs appear to the front runners

He(Umberger) made no secret of his interest in playing for the Penguins, and general manager Craig Patrick said Sunday that the team planned to explore the possibility of signing Umberger.

The Penguins, though, are believed to have offered a deal featuring a salary of about $600,000, while indications are that the Flyers and Maple Leafs are willing to pay him $1,185,000, the maximum salary for players from his draft year.
