Today the Penguins have re-signed forward Craig Adams.
The two year deal is for $700k per year. Drafted in 1996 by the Hartford Whalers, the 36 year old Adams has been an important part of the Pens 4th line and PK since March 4th, 2009, when he was claimed off of waivers from the Chicago Blackhawks.
This move fills a void that the Pens have on their 4th line this off-season at a reasonable price.

Matt Cooke update
Via the PG, it looks like Matt Cooke may be moving on.
General manager Ray Shero acknowledged Wednesday evening that precedent strongly suggests that, now that Cooke is about to be free to move on, he almost certainly will do so.

Then, just like that, he was gone. The original report proved to be false, as Iginla had...
