    Jaromir Jagr and that 's it. Any other signings should be internal. Shero said on the news last night that they have an offer out to TK that has nothing to do with whether Jagr signs or not. I don't know if I like that idea since if Jagr doesn't sign, we still are short a Top 6 player and Pascal Dupuis CANNOT be the solution and Tyler Kennedy i'm not sure is a Top 6 guy.

    We'll see!

    Penguins Re-Sign Forward Tyler Kennedy
    Friday, 07.01.2011 / 11:59 AM / News
    Pittsburgh Penguins
    The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed forward Tyler Kennedy to a two-year contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

    Kennedy’s contract will run through the 2012-13 season and has an average annual value of $2 million.

    Kennedy, 24, is coming off the best season of his four-year career after establishing single-season highs across the board in games played (80), goals (21), assists (24), points (45) and power-play goals (7). In seven postseason games, Kennedy added two goals and one assist.

    A Sault Ste. Marie, ON native, Kennedy was a valuable member of the Penguins’ 2009 Stanley Cup championship squad, contributing five goals, four assists and nine points in 24 postseason contests. Three of Kennedy’s goals that spring were game-winning tallies – including Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final against Detroit.

    The 5-foot-11, 183-pound Kennedy has appeared in 266 career regular-season games for Pittsburgh, registering 59 goals, 65 assists, 124 points and 13 game-winning goals. Kennedy has collected 16 points (7G-9A) in 61 postseason games.

    Before joining the Penguins, Kennedy skated four seasons for his hometown Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). In 249 career games with the Greyhounds, Kennedy posted 184 points (64G-120A). He added seven points (2G-5A) in 12 postseason contests.

    Sign TK, im not sure we could ;land Ryder (who id rather have over Cole 10 times a week). Hearing us signing Rupp too which leaves us pretty much replacing what we already had with new contracts

    Eagle posted the article in the other Jagr thread below. Ray gives his reasons in that article. He wanted Jagr's decision by midnight Wednesday. Jagr and his agent still haven't decided anything and are basically turning this into a "bidding war" according to Ray and he didn't want to be a part of that.

    That's terrible.

    Still holding out hope that Jagr and his agent call back at the end of the day

    Even so, grossly overpaying Kennedy isn't a solution either. That contract killed our chances of getting someone like Ryder and pretty assumes that If/When Staal gets thrown back on the 3rd line, our 2nd line will consist of AHL'er/Malkin/Dupuis ... We should be getting better and improving, not overpaying 1 year wonders that offer nothing to special teams like Kennedy
