Finally some big news as the Penguins have brought in Miroslav Satan, Ruslan Fedotenko, and have signed Fleury to an extension.(TSN) Satan will be making $3.5M and Fedotenko $2.5M. Both deals are for 1-year, which fits perfectly into the Penguins' plans by allowing flexibility into the financially tight 09/10 season. Fleury has signed a 7 year $35M deal that will have an annual cap hit of $5M. We'll be updating with more news and opinions later in the day, but heres an idea of the Pens cap situation for anyone interested. We have 8 defensemen signed, not even counting Goligoski. Expect Sydor and possibly another to be shipped out within the next couple days to free up room to sign the rest of the needed forwards.
