A couplr of the tsn guys are saying 8yr 58mil. 7.25/yr.

Capgeek then tweeted that they have 7 guys signed for 44mil and if the cap stays the same this year(which it won't) they'll have 1.17mil to pay all the remaining players on their team (not signed as of now)

Yep, good luck having any depth Pittsburgh. Congratulations to the GM of the year!!!! (What a joke)

Personally I would have voted for Murray but what do I know, since the league has to play cocksucker for the Pens ...

No this is smart just give those five guys 54 minutes of ice time a game. They will be fine!

I'm now reading that the deal is not quite done yet Per Lebrun

My guess is the cap ceiling will rise to accommodate the Penguins stupidity. Call it a hunch.

Sure it will rise again which is obviously a very good thing but having 7 players making up 75 % jof the cap is a hard pill to swallow unless the cap is reaching something like 80 million soon, they are not going to add much depth with that kind of money tied up on 7 players.

Im not so sure that it is such a good thing. Certain gm's will sign stupid big contracts then say they have no money which leads to another lockout which leads to another cap roll back. Some GM's need to stop betting that the cap will increase every year and throwing big money at players that don't deserve it.

Wonder if Dupuis is available ?

Likely yes. They can basically afford the rest of their players to be ELC's, and not max ELC money either. GM of the year just for killing the Pens future.

So they've got $8M left this season and 5 roster spots to fill. UFAs include Iginla, Morrow, Cook and Dupuis. Kennedy has already gone. Next season Niskanen, Jokinen and Orpik are among the UFAs.

Their starting goaltender is still Fleury, who's still tying up $5M in cap space. They could buy him out and put...........Bryzgalov?...in net?

Im sure the GM has a plan.

Look at Anaheim. 24 mil tied up in 3 guys. Brutal.
