Scuderi, 34, re-joins the Pittsburgh organization after spending the past four seasons with the Los Angeles Kings. The defensive-minded blueliner originally played five-plus seasons with the Penguins between 2003-09, helping the team to a Stanley Cup championship in 2009.
The 6-foot-1, 216-pound Scuderi appeared in all 48 regular-season games with Los Angeles in 2012-13, tallying one goal, 11 assists and 12 points. He led the team in both blocked shots (66) and shorthanded minutes (3:13) while averaging 21:47 minutes per contest. Scuderi collected three assists and led the Kings with a plus-9 rating in 18 games during the postseason.
A couple immediate things:
1. Everything full circle back to the summer when the Penguins lost Scuderi. Here was our farewell to Scuderi. [ July 9th 2009 ]
2. Shero's quote when they lost Scuderi:
"When I first got here and found out he had a one-way contract, I was like, 'Are you kidd...

The Kings lost the first significant member of their Stanley Cup-winning team when free-agent defenseman Rob Scuderi went back to the Pittsburgh Penguins, signing a four-year deal worth 13.5 million.
His move came within the first hour of the opening of NHL free agency on Friday. The average annual value of the contract is 3.375 million, according to the Penguins.
Earlier today, the Kings lost defenseman Rob Scuderi as an unrestricted free agent to, ironically, the Pittsburgh Penguins, the team the Kings signed him away from four years ago. If Willie Mitchell is going to be healthy next season, he can step in and replace Scuderi, and I think the Kings will be fine. They’d probably have defense pairings of [...]

Well in all likelihood, their defensive group will go from 8 to 7 with the loss of Scuderi. It's gonna suck to see Rob go. The Piece as he is called has been one of the primary components of two championship teams. When he came to Los Angeles after winning the Cup with Pittsburgh, he said - "I didn't come here to lose." Rob Scuderi is a culture...

There are already reports the Penguins will sign Rob Scuderi. If so, that will eat the rest of the Penguins cap.
One would think a Scuderi deal may mean some moving parts. Is Niskanen in play if that happens? The Penguins still need someone to replace Matt Cooke, who is all but gone at this point.

When defenseman Rob Scuderi and forward Craig Adams were signed today, it seemed highly unlikely that the Penguins could afford to bring back forward Matt Cooke. Considering the contract that he signed with the Minnesota Wild, Pittsburgh definitely could not have afforded him. The Wild inked Cooke to a three-year, $7.5 million deal. Therefore...
