Mark Eaton back to the Penguins?

Mark Eaton was released from his PTO in Wilkes Barre, he's at the Penguins morning skate in Pittsburgh.

This confuses me and makes me wonder if a trade is coming in the near future. I can't imagine why otherwise, they have 7 healthy D and one guy deserving of ice time is already sitting in the press box every night.

Maybe a trade, maybe just for depth. This is what Eaton said.

Mark Eaton: "In 09 (Cup Winning season) we had 8 or 9 NHL defenseman. Can never have too many defensemen"

Maybe he will be in Wilkes Barre and if the Pens make the playoffs he will be recalled.

Not the worst idea ever. If we got flooded by injuries I'm thinking I'd rather have Eaton in than a rookie WBS guy. But I guess that depends on how he performs. You know what you have with Eaton.

i think it will be a depth signing so he can stay in WBS and be ready for an emergency call-up in lieu of injuries

How did he look during his small stint with WBS? If he has anything left in the tank it couldn't hurt to have a veteran like that if there's an injury.

Shero always likes having extra d-men for the playoffs (which is a great idea). Don't want your lineup being full of young guys if injuries happen. Eaton probably won't be that good, but if need be his playoff experience could help us out if need be. I'm sure he could still play well on the PK.

He was released from WBS this morning.

Pens' official twitter
Quote:
Eaton: Unsigned guys are skating with teams to get a look at them. Hopefully I can impress ( #Pens ) and end up here. That's long-term goal
Quote:
#Pens coach Bylsma: Added a new skater in Eaton. Veteran player that we know. Hasn't been signed, just skating with us over few days
So, sounds more like a favour to a former Pen, then a sign that something is close.
