The Pens have the cap space and the free agent market isn't especially great right now. A one-year deal could be worth the risk. Mike Knuble would provide the veteran presence, grit and work in front of the net that the Penguins need. They could even just play him on the powerplay if that's all the ice time he can handle. At least it would prevent him from scoring big goals against the Penguins. The top two lines will be Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis and Neal-Malkin-???. Knuble may fit in nicely there.
