Good deal for Ottawa, Leclaire and a 2nd round pick.

As TFP reported earlier, the Ottawa Senators have signed defenseman Filip Kuba to a three-year contract extension.
Kuba, who was in the final year of his contract, will earn $3.7 million per year over the length of his new deal.

Kuba has registered two goals and 27 assists for 29 points in 52 games with the Senators this season.

Also take it fwiw, but I heard a rumor going around last night that the Blues want Satan and we are looking for a sixth round pick from them.   I hope to hell this is true and that Pleau is dumb enough to pick up that 3.5 and actually give us something in return.

Guy is big (6-5, 225) and is relatively young (28).  This seems more like a trade to help down in WBS than in Pittsburgh.  He's basically a fringe AHL'er IMO.  Nothing special at all

Pens claim Craig Adams off waivers from Chicago.  Gerber to Toronto and Tellqvist traded to Buffalo for 4th round pick.

Not exactly sure why we brought in Craig Adams.  He's 31 and can't score goals.  I'm not exactly sure what else he brings to the table.

On a separate note:

Alex Ovechkin just left practice after taking a slap shot off of his right foot. He went to the bench in obvious pain, removed his skate and then was helped to the dressing room by a trainer.

Karma's a bitch.

So up to this point for the Penguins...

Penguins make minor moves
Wednesday, March 04, 2009
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Penguins claimed right winger Craig Adams off waivers from Chicago today.

Adams, 31, is 6 foot and 200 pounds, has two goals and in 36 games with the Blackhawks this season. He will join the Penguins for their game in Florida Thursday night.

The Penguins had made a number of moves, most of modest impact, by early afternoon, but the most surprising was assigning winger Luca Caputi, one of the top prospects in their organization, from their American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre to their ECHL farm team in Wheeling for violating unspecified team rules.

Defenseman Jon D'Aversa was sent to the Nailers for the same reason, while forwards Chris Minard and Aaron Boogaard are to be healthy scratches for a game against Binghamton tonight for similar violations.

The Penguins also assigned forward Bill Thomas, a Fox Chapel native, to Wilkes-Barre and swapped minor-leaguer defensemen with St. Louis.

They acquired Andy Wozniewski from the Blues for Danny Richmond shortly before learning that winger Miroslav Satan, who was placed on waivers Tuesday, had not been claimed.

The Penguins have the option of assigning Satan, whose contract is worth $3.5 million, to the Baby Penguins if they make a trade before the 3 p.m. deadline that requires them to open some salary-cap space.

He also could remain on the NHL roster.

Wozniewski, who is 28 years old 6 foot 3, 195 pounds, has one goal and 16 assists in 56 games with St. Louis' AHL affiliate in Peoria. He will report to the Baby Penguins, but is not expected to be in their lineup for the Binghamton game.

Depending on how far we go in the playoffs, we gave up a fifth round pick for Guerin.  That could drop down to a third round pick at the lowest depending on rounds completed.

Well, at least we have some veteran leadership in the locker room...

I guess we aren't making a move for a legitament scorer. Kunitz was a great pick up, and I hope Guerin does well.

Looks like we're gonna be one and done if we do make the playoffs. I don't see us beating Boston, NJ, or Washington in a 7 game series. And since we didn't make any big moves there is no way we finish better than 6th.

Where does Guerin fit in? He's listed as a Center, but is Bylsma really going to throw him on the first line with Sid?

Feddy-Geno-Sykora

The Plus: Gave up little to get him.

The Minus: He's 38 and I don't think he has the speed to hang with Crosby or Malkin.  It's not like we just picked up the 01-02 Bill Guerin here.

At this point, I wouldn't move Kunitz off of Staal's line considering the way those two have been playing together.

Yeah, I like Kunitz and Staal too, but where does this leave Sid? Dupuis and Geurin? Ouch.

Also, take off Thomas and add Craig Adams I guess. Left Dupuis off the list too. Wonder what'll happen to Satan. Can't we put him on waivers again, but this time at half of what his salary is worth? Didn't we do that with Leclaire or Recchi?

Antropov is a Ranger for second round pick and a conditional draft pick.

Carcillo to Philly for Upshall and second round pick.

So minus Bouwmeester, all of the 'big' names are off the board.  When the TSN crew is debating on what a team would get for Dominic f-ing Moore, you know it's a dead year for trades.

And TSN just reported that Bouwmeester is not going anywhere.  So he's off the block.  That's it.

Oh and Morris is a ranger.  Rangers gave up Kalinen, Prucha and Dawes.

Moore to Buffalo for a second round pick.

They are making room as we speak.  Thomas is not on the roster.  He cleared waivers and was sent down to WBS.  They also sent down Tim Wallace.  If I were the Penguins, I would also send Satan down to WBS so we can open up some salary cap space, particularly after the signings today.  Or just simply release Satan and be done with him already. 

But it's hard to tell what the lines are going to look like because they do have to make a decision on Satan.

Also, Guerin can, has and probably will play RW.

So basically when all is said and done, our trades/moves come down to this...

Kunitz, Tangradi, Guerin, Adams, Wozniewski for Whitney and a pick.  It's definately not horrible when put in that perspective, but it's still not enough to make a legitimate run at the cup this year.  A one and done run is a very real possibility.  We still don't have the legitimate winger.

I like the trade for Guerin. The guy can score and get in front of the net on the PP and goes to the boards. He should at least make this team more interesting down the stretch. If you're going to go the rental route, I definitely don't mind giving up a 3-5 round pick.

Honestly, if Sid gets healthy with the addition of Kunitz and Guerin, I actually like our chances as a first round spoiler. The division leaders aren't going to want any part of this team provided Fluery gets hot.

Couldn't agree more. Considering what we gave up, Guerin is a good get. Let Ovechkin pull his bush league bullshit on Sid while he's out there with Guerin and Kunitz. They'll put an end to that crap real quick. Kunitz has the speed to keep up with Sid and Guerin can work the boards and the crease. I gotta say, I like this team so much better now than I did a week ago.

It's definately not the type of trade I wanted, but I'm just happy that's all we had to give up for a 37 year old rental player.  Even if we have to give up our third, we still have a third coming our way from TB.  While I don't see this move making us a legitimate cup contender, it will at least make the team more interesting to watch.

Oh well, it's a done deal.  It can't be any worse than having to watch Satan for the last five months. Grin

And this is what it basically boils down to when it comes to Satan's situation...

Quote
Q: What will become of Miroslav Satan? If I followed the logic correctly, he was placed on waivers to create room under the salary cap. Since Guerin's salary is higher than Satan's, does that mean he is lost for the rest of the season provided they do not clear any more room? What will be his fate? Although he did not live up to expectations, he still seems too good a player to be lost for the rest of the year.

Mike, Colorado Springs, Colo.

MOLINARI: Satan was assigned to the Penguins' American Hockey League team in Wilkes-Barre yesterday after the deal to acquire Guerin and his $4.5 million contract from the New York Islanders was finalized.

Satan's salary is $3.5 million, and adding Guerin to the payroll didn't leave room for Satan, who had been put on waivers Tuesday and cleared yesterday.

As things stand now, it's pretty much out of the question that Satan will return during the regular season unless the Penguins lose someone to a long-term injury. The salary cap remains in effect through the regular season, and the Penguins apparently don't even have the space to accommodate the 50 percent of Satan's salary for which they would be responsible if another club claimed him on re-entry waivers.

It remains to be seen whether Satan actually will pull on a Baby Penguins sweater, let alone when that might happen. General manager Ray Shero likely will give Satan a few days to ponder his situation and decide if he wants to play in the minors leagues for the first time since the 1994-95 season. Eventually, he will have to either go to Wilkes-Barre or be suspended, but Shero's track record in such matters makes it clear he won't hound Satan for an instant decision.

If Satan goes to Wilkes-Barre, it's conceivable that he could be back in the NHL for the playoffs, because the salary cap is not in effect then, but he presumably would be nothing more than a spare part unless the Penguins have injuries.

All in all, Satan is facing an anticlimactic conclusion to a season that has to be a huge disappointment for all concerned.

He should follow Roberts' lead...

Quote
Gary Roberts' NHL career is over.

Unclaimed on waivers on trade deadline day, the 42-year-old veteran will not play another game with the Tampa Bay Lightning this season. He had already announced that he would retire at the end of this season. 

A formal announcement of Roberts' retirement is expected from the Lightning.

Say what you will about Mark Madden, but when it comes to the Penguins he does get it right from time to time...

Trade deadline day blues
Wednesday 03-04-2009 5:24pm ET

I HATE NHL trade deadline day. Not the event...but the timing.

My show starts at 3 pm...the deadline arrives at 3 pm...the day's most dramatic dealings usually occur just before the deadline, like last year's Marian Hossa trade...ergo, my show on NHL trade deadline day is largely ad-libbed. But still great. Thank God for the Google on the Internet machine.

Craig Adams is a bum. Andy Wozniewski is a bum, with the difficulty of spelling his name making his marginal talent seem all the more despicable. Adams is a decent fourth-liner at best. Maybe Wozniewski can bring back "Woytowich's Polish Army," but in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, because he's system depth, nothing more.

So I sit here...at 1:59 pm...and wait.

Columbus traded goalie Pascal Leclaire to Ottawa for versatile forward Antoine Vermette. I got a dozen e-mails saying, "WE SHOULDA GOT VERMETTE!" Yeah, we should have. It's just a shame we didn't have an extra No. 1 goalie sitting around.

I don't believe for a second that the Penguins seriously considered trading for Ryan Malone. If they couldn't afford him last year, they can't afford him now. The money earmarked for Hossa was instead spent on Orpik and anyway, seven years is too long for a player of Malone's limited accomplishments.

I do believe that Tampa Bay GM Brian Lawton called Ray Shero, his Pittsburgh counterpart. "Ray, Brian Lawton in Tampa. Look, we paid Malone way too much for way too long. We ****ed up. Any chance you'd want him back? Hello? Ray? Hello?" Then comes the headline: PENS DISCUSS MALONE RETURN WITH LIGHTNING.

Boston got Mark Recchi from Tampa Bay. I like Recchi, but I hate it when veterans on crap teams continually get soft places to land with contenders, as if the fact that their previous team is rotten was absolutely none of their doing. Recchi has made a second career out of doing that.


It's 2:14 pm, and speaking of which:

PENS GET GUERIN FROM THE NEW YORK ISLANDERS! The Penguins got veteran goal-scorer Bill Guerin, 38, for a conditional draft pick.

If the Penguins miss the playoffs, the Islanders get a fifth-round pick. If the Pens make the playoffs, the Isles get a fourth-round pick. If the Pens win a round or more, the Isles get a third-round pick. GREAT DEAL! That's a reasonable price, even if Guerin will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

Guerin won the Stanley Cup with New Jersey in 1995. He has 403 goals in 1,168 NHL games, including 16 goals with the Islanders this season.

Are Guerin's best days as a finisher behind him? We'll soon find out, because he'll skate on a line with Sidney Crosby and give the Pens another much-needed right-handed shot on the power play. I don't think Guerin will play the Kris Letang spot on the left half-board. I bet Guerin sits in front of the net, and to great effect.

Guerin is gritty, and he'll provide Crosby with a veteran counterpart in terms of dressing-room leadership. Add in that the Penguins swiped Guerin out from under the nose of hated Washington, and Shero couldn't have done better.

Finally, Crosby can just go play. He doesn't have to elevate anybody. He doesn't have to create a star. Chris Kunitz on one side, Guerin on the other. Two tough competitors, each with solid skills and a nose for the net. I like it.

UPDATE: The New York Rangers have acquired defenseman Derek Morris from Phoenix for Nigel Dawes, Dmitri Kalinin and Petr Prucha. I see Morris as Wade Redden Lite, and I don't mean that as a compliment. The Rangers also got Nik Antropov from Toronto for two draft picks. Rangers GM Glen Sather seems committed to getting as many underachieving head-cases as possible.

Philadelphia added another hack in ex-Pen Daniel Carcillo. You can never be too tough, or too stupid.
Erik Christensen to Anaheim. Dominic Moore to Buffalo. When all the trades are announced, every ex-Penguin in the NHL will have switched teams. I never thought I'd see the day Dominic Moore would fetch a second-round pick as a rental player.

UPDATE: Yet another ex-Penguin moves: Noah Welch to Tampa Bay. Harvard man Welch famously donated his brain to science, but that never stopped anybody from playing for the Lightning.

UPDATE: Carolina re-acquired Erik Cole. Will Brooks Orpik re-break Cole's neck? We'll see when the Penguins visit Carolina April 4. Orpik fractured Cole's C5 vertebra on March 4, 2006 with a hit from behind that was clumsy and unfortunate but not malicious, Cole didn't see it that way and has tried to even the score ever since. It's a shame Cole can't carry the puck as well as he carries a grudge
