Below you will see rumors, some by reputable sources and others by some less reputable ones. Either way enjoy the read and remember that no matter what happens in Free Agency and the trade market that we are all Penguins fans.
A player that had connections last season heading up to the trade deadline seems that he has interest in PGH. But with the Richards contract termination it now appears the Kings may have a little wiggle room in retaining Williams.
According to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review
If true we could potentially see Gonchar return to Pittsburgh to help shape some of the young D as well as elevate the Penguins struggling Power Play. at $1 million for 1 year I would do it!
A name that has popped up more than once over the last 48 hours is that of Frolik’s. A big reason why is because of what Josh Yohe reported two days ago.
Mentioned at one point during the draft it seems there was a little more to it than just whispers as Dan Kingerski of Pittsburghs 93.7 The Fan radio station confirms that a very reliable source has heard that Ward would LOVE to play for the Penguins.
It also appears that pending Free Agent Cody Franson has been contacted by the Penguins. wIt doesn’t mean there is anything serious going on with attempts of acquiring him, but shows us a bit of how the Penguins are thinking.
This is all I have for now folks but remember to check back to The Pitt Blog leading up to July 1st and after for information on your favorite Hockey team.
