Cap hit $2.75m

Keith Tkachuk - LW/C
Games Played - 36
Goals - 8
Assists - 13
Cap hit $2.15m

Tkachuk is also good at faceoffs which would help on Geno's line. Nolan is a righty though and some people will drool over that

I was just spitballing about Tkachuk, but now that you put some numbers down, I'm thinking that it wouldn't be such a bad move. Especially after a game like tonight where someone like Tkachuk would be throwing chairs in the locker room.

Something tells me that the Pens could use a little more of that type of "Oh my God, I think he might kill us" attitude in the locker room. We had that with G-Rob.
