Adams and Guerin Signed with Pittsburgh

I know - I'm a little late, but I was out of the state yesterday and didn't have access to the internet!!

As you all have probably already heard, the Penguins signed both Guerin and Adams yesterday. They were both to be free agents come tomorrow, July 1st. Guerin will return for one more season with the Pens signing a contract for $2 million and Adams agreed to a 2-year / $1.10 million.
"With Craig and Billy, these were deals we wanted to get done because we thought we were close," Shero said. "We've had conversations with the other players' agents, and we'll continue talking through (Wednesday), but right now it's not there — and that's what I said to those agents.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, by signing those two wingers yesterday, it will make it more difficult to keep other key players like Fedotenko, Scuderi, and Gill.
"Some changes are always somewhat good. That doesn't mean we don't want them back, but it's a balancing act."
It is very likely that Fedotenko will be testing free agency as it is almost certain Scuderi and Gill will as well.

More later, so check back!!
