Penguins sign Satan and Fedotenko

From TSN:

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.

Read the entire report here.

These players are an upgrade over what the Penguins would have put on their top two lines had they not signed anyone. However, they are certainly not an upgrade over what the Penguins iced at the end of last season. Satan is probably good for 25-30 goals next season and Fedotenko about 15-20. That isn't bad production, and both have playoff experience. The fact that they are one-year contracts gives me reason to approve of these signings.

Ballhype: hype it up!
