Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News,
The Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman is eligible for unrestricted free agency come July 1 and will definitely get a big raise from the $712,500 salary he brought in this season. His play in the post-season has earned him mentions for the 2010 U.S. Olympic team and though he is a priority for re-signing in Pittsburgh, the Pens don’t have a lot of room left under the cap for next season and sacrifices will have to be made.
So what’s the best move to make if you’re Scuderi? Stay put, sir. You’re literally playing for the best team in the league and with Pittsburgh’s core, that ranking won’t waver too much in the next few years.
Bolting a Stanley Cup champ for greener (as in the color of money) pastures is certainly a nice reward for a job well done, but it certainly hasn’t helped the on-ice careers of those who have made the leap in the past.
