EDIT: From Rob Rossi on Twitter:
Rob Scuderi has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Kings, he confirms via text.
From the P-G:
The Penguins have lost free-agent defenseman Rob Scuderi.
He accepted a contract with Los Angeles today. Terms of the agreement were not announced, but is it believed to be a four-year deal with an annual salary-cap hit of $3.4 million.
The Penguins continue to try to re-sign winger Ruslan Fedotenko, and to have discussions about bringing back winger Petr Sykora.
They also are in the market for a backup goaltender, although restricted free agent John Curry is a candidate to fill that role.
Rob Rossi reports that Los Angeles has offered Scuderi a long-term contract worth over $3 million a season.
The word is that Fedotenko is down to three teams: Pittsburgh, Minnesota and an unknown third team.
In other news, Nik Antropov signed a four-year, $16 million deal with Atlanta.
Mark Recchi is returning to Boston.
He signed a one year deal worth $1 million.
Eklund made this ground-breaking announcement on Twitter:
"Leafs trade could happen in the hour. Game changer. Could fall apart as well. With western team."
In other news, a free agent could sign somewhere in the next little while. Or maybe not.
Speaking of unnecessary comments on Twitter, Martin Havlat had this to say yesterday:
"Excited to be in Minny where I was welcomed and appreciated by management. The real story about what happened in Chicago to come out."
He then said this:
"There's something to be said for loyalty and honor."
However, no one knows how to endear himself to the fans like Marian Hossa:
"If there's no salary cap, I'm sure I would still be in Detroit"
Way to tell the fans of your new team that you don't really want to be there.
