Uh so Kris Letang got hurt. [ ESPN ]
Bylsma said Letang will be re-evaluated when the Penguins return to Pittsburgh on Monday. There is no timetable for his return.
Doesn't seem good that there isn't a timeable. No clue how this effects the cap, which the Penguins are over.
Remember, even though the Pens can place Vokoun and Letang on LTIR, they'd have to be out for 10 games or 24 days ( thanks @TimBowers62 )
So yea, is that really a good solution? No clue. Rossi tried to make sense of it as well.
Any LTI designations would allow the Penguins to safely sign forward Chuck Kobasew, who was to be offered a one-year contract this weekend. Kobasew, in camp on a tryout contract, must make at least $550,000, the veteran minimum.
Kobasew will be signed under the little known rule that says if you are friends and train with Sidney Crosby, you will get a contract from the Penguins.
