The penguins have announced the signings of Chris Campoli, Taylor Pyatt, and David Steckel. Here is what GM Matt had to say on these signings:

"With a guy like Taylor Pyatt we get a guy who can score, hit, and grind it out with the best of them out there. Chris Campoli is a guy we have had our eyes on and knew he would be our main target on D this offseason. He rounds out our top 6 D nicely, and he is a guy that we will rely on to QB our PP. David Steckel is a face off specialist and a guy that brings us some serious grit. I fully expect him to log serious PK minutes which is somewhere I would like the team to improve on. I know this won't be a popular move with the fans seeing as he took out Sid at the Winter Classic 2 years ago, but this is a business and the two of them will have to get along, and the fans will have to learn to accept him into the community here in Pittsburgh. We have around $9M in cap space and we do plan on making one more serious acquisition before the start of the season or at the beginning of it, so this isn't the last time i'll be at this podium."

Campoli signed on to a 1 year $1.75M contract, Pyatt agreed to a 1 year $0.9M contract, and Steckel agreed to a 1 year $1.45M contract.
