More Free Agency Info

I've come across interesting items about free agency:
  • The Penguins are to have met with representatives for Satan yesterday. Despite KHL's interest in him, Satan wants to play in the NHL for the 2009 - 2010 season.

    I think this is unlikely; as much as Satan improved throughout the playoffs after being called back up from the AHL, I don't think the Penguins are any more interested in signing him than the day they placed him on waivers, but I could be wrong about that.

  • Zigomanis is said to be a priority for the Penguins and a deal could be made prior to July 1st (for a 1- to 2-year contract); he's interested in staying with Pittsburgh.

  • This would be a good move. Even though he only played for the Penguins for a short time before suffering a shoulder injury, Zigomanis' skill with face-offs made a big difference for the team; he was a top face-off winner with a 60%+ wins.
