Penguins sign Satan, Fedotenko; re-sign Fleury

The Pittsburgh Penguins had some holes to fill after losing Marian Hossa and Jarkko Ruutu yesterday, so they went out today and signed unrestricted free agent forwards Miroslav Satan and Ruslan Fedotenko.

The Penguins also took care of some internal business, re-signing restricted free agent goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to a seven-year, $45 million contract.

More to follow...

I actually read on TSN.CA Fleury's deal was 7yrs 35 million so i dont know about that whole sentence. But I like the signings, hopefully the contracts are known soon.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have taken quick steps to replace the departed Marian Hossa.

Pittsburgh has verbally agreed to deals with forwards Miroslav Satan and Ruslan Fedotenko.

Both deals are one-year contracts, with Satan earning $3.5 million next year and Fedotenko $2.5 million.

Satan, twice selected to the All-Star game, scored 16 goals and added 25 assists in 80 games last season for the New York Islanders. The native of the Czech Republic has 685 points in 947 career NHL games.

Fedotenko marked 16 goals and 17 assists in just 67 games last season, also for the Islanders. Fedotenko was sidelined for parts of the year with a knee injury.

Good signings for us.

I agree. I like these signings. Now, I'd like to see them land M.Cooke (UFA-Washington). He has good speed and hits everything, a great replacement for Ruutuu. Jason Smith would sure look on the blueline too. Hate him on Philly, but would love him on the Pens.

I agree with Cooke. I wanted him to be one of our signs in the beginning. But now i guess were going for a Finlander to help us out. Don't know anything about him so I'm about to research this hopeful "stud."

He had 34 goals and 44 assists in 56 games with Karpat in Finland's Elite League last season, placing him first in the league scoring race. His totals were up from 22 goals and 33 assists in the same number of games in 2006-07.

Down. Whole different league but seems like he could be a good edition.
