The first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft kicks off on Friday night, 7:00 PM on both Versus and NHL Network, if you get either or both. Rounds Two through Seven take place on Saturday.
The Pens are picking 20th in the first round. They’ve got no second-round pick, the cost of allowing Jordan Leopold to grace Mellon Arena ice for a couple of months (and maybe more). They’ve got their regular picks in the third through seventh, plus Toronto’s sixth-round pick.
For shits and giggles, the Pens pick just ahead of Detroit in each round. It’s probably the result of some Gary Bettman-engineered grand scheme to prop up his Penguins at the expense of those damned Red Wings.Add a comment
Left wing Matt Cooke has reached a verbal agreement on a three-year contract with the Penguins. Term was agreed upon Monday night and the contract has been sent to NHL central registry to be made official.
Financial terms were not immediately known, but Cooke is one of the rare plus-30 players to re-sign with the Penguins on a multi-year deal since Shero was named to his post in May 2006.
"Billy wants to play... I think Billy is like a Mark Recchi. They're very competitive guys. We just have to sort things out and see what the fit is."

From a man known only as "Menacho." Here is a clip of a Flyers fan losing her cool after the cup was raised.
