    NO NO !! nothing Earth Shattering or anything

    Pittsburgh Penguins
    The Pittsburgh Penguins agreed to terms with Mattias Modig to a two-year entry level contract after acquiring the goaltender from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a 2010 sixth-round draft pick, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

    Modig, 23, played the last four seasons with his hometown team Lulea HF of the Swedish Elite League. He has carried the bulk of the netminding duties in the last two years, playing 74 games and posting a 2.35 goals-against average with a .913 save percentage and six shutouts.

    The 6-foot, 163-pound goaltender was originally drafted by Anaheim in the fourth round (121st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

    The Penguins traded a sixth-round pick to Anaheim, which was obtained from Montreal. Pittsburgh now has seven draft picks remaining in 2010 with a first-, third-, fourth-, fifth-, two sixth- and a seventh-round selection.

    Oh oh - MAF must be on his way out!

    Seriously though, I don't understand why the organization made this trade.

    The big club is set, it would appear.

    For WBS, Thiessen has seemed to lock up tthe #1 spot. So, instead of signing a retread, this guy must be destined for back-up there.

    So much for Curry - they must have lost all confidence in him after that one game debacle in Vancouver this year, in addition to less than stellar play in WBS after that game. Resigning Johnson was probably the handwriting on the wall.

    Meanwhile, the last I heard they still are interested in signing at least one of their two draft picks from last year, Killeen and Pechurski (sp?). I guess Wheeling will be their destination, if they're signed.

    It's not likely they would sign both Killeen and Pechurski for Wheeling anyway. Usually they sign a minor league vet to go with the prospect, pretty much like WBS does. But there's no way this new guy will see time in the ECHL after all his time in the Swedish League.

    So that would mean Curry's the odd man out.

    Pechurski, their fifth-rounder, has not been signed, but has a contract in Russia (as well as permission to play in North America) and is considered to have "defected" status by the NHL, so the Penguins did not have to sign him by the June 1 deadline.
