Niedermayer signs 1 year deal for 1 million with Buffalo. espn said it was down to buffalo, edmonton, and pittsburgh and there were also post gazzette rumors that the penguins were interested. i'm kind of glad we didn't get him, he hasn't been very good the past couple years.
Very surprised we didn't go after Niedermayer a bit more aggressively. We have a history of picking up the wrong brother. Pronger, Premeau, Hatcher, Miller, just off the top of my head. Not to mention having the wrong Bourque, Chris and not his father Ray.
Seriously, of the 3rd line centers Shero is rumored to be interested in, Dominic Moore is the only one I like. He's relatively young and looked very good in the playoffs. Madden is at the end of his career and would have to take a heavy pay cut to sign with the Pens. Thankfully, Niedermayer is out of the running now.
