With contracts offered to every previous regular except Matt Bradley and Michal Rozsival, with Sidney Crosby and apparently Evgeni Malkin on the way once deals are completed, the Penguins and general manager Craig Patrick wade into the NHL's flooded free-agent market at noon today with cash to spend. Probably at least $10 million, if you figure into the new salary-cap mix the projected values of the two rookie centers and a certain part-owner/player, Mario Lemieux. "We have a plan in mind," Patrick said last night, when qualifying offers had to be extended to unsigned players whose rights a team wanted to retain. "Whether we can execute it ... we'll see what happens."
