Penguins Offseason: Not as Drastic as Some Might Think

After losing to the Montreal Canadiens in the second round of the playoffs many fans called for an overhaul of the roster with rumors appearing that would see the Penguins mov core players like Evgeni Malkin. Despite the disappointing playoff run the penguins have managed to put together a solid core and could be a few players away from another Cup.  It was apparent that the Penguins were lacking defensively during their playoff run. And with a number of defenseman on the market this summer look for the penguins to be busy.

Columbus want to make the playoffs this season and could use scoring wingers.  Pitsburgh gets a solid defensive prospect.

Tor-Nikolai Kulemin

Pit-1st 2011, Clb 3rd 2011

Kulemin would be a good winger for Malkin and is a good all around forward.

Free Agency

Colby Armstrong 3 years(2.5mil)

Paul Kariya 1 year (4mil)

Dan Hamhuis 4 years (4mil)

Kulemin 2 years (2.5mil)

Hamhuis(4)-Letang(3.5)

Orpik(3.750)-Goligoski(1.8)

Eaton(2)-Colaiacovo(1.2)

That would put the Penguins at just under 58 mil with 1.4 in cap space.
