Pens sign Feds at a discount

Obviously all those "experts" were wrong about Ruslan Fedotenko leaving the Pens. Feds decided to stay with the Pens yesterday. At a discount no less. He accepted a one-year deal worth $1.8 million to stay with the Pens. He made $2.25 million last year. He is now the third forward to take a pay cut to stay with the Pens. That definitely says a lot about the team.

The Pens signed another player yesterday in defenseman Nate Guenin who is from Sewickley. He's 26 years old, 6'2", 210 pounds and signed a two-way contract for one-year. If he plays in the NHL he will make $500,000, if he plays in the AHL, $105,000. Ray Shero is still looking for an experienced defenseman.

The Pens lost two AHLers yesterday in Jeff Taffe and Chris Minard.
