The Penguins have signed UFA Defenseman Sergei Gonchar to a 3 year deal that will pay him $2.2 million per year, as well as a Partial NTC that gives him the right to list 12 teams he WILL accept a trade to. We look forward to having Sergei back in the fold here in Pittsburgh, and we look forward to three great years ahead!.
Maybe I calculated it wrong, but the Pens are 10 million over the cap.
I had a feeling about this. I'm almost inclined to say we should flat out revoke the Corey Perry contract and put him back to market simply because he didn't have the cap space and the contract would have been voided outright by the league.
In preparation for some big announcements we have later today, the send down Jaden Schwartz to Peoria. He has a two-way contract. There he can get experience and seasoning playing top line minutes, instead of bottom 6 another year here. It also opens up some roster space for us.
The Avalanche have learned that Milan Hejduk has decided to call it a career. We are both sad and happy about this announcement, sad because it is an end of an era, but happy because Milan has given our franchise so many fantastic years. We hope that he remains in Colorado as a part of the team sometime down the road.
