Word is the Pens could still add both a piece up front and on the back end -- or at least one of them.
Among the forwards Pittsburgh is keeping a close on these days are Toronto Maple Leafs teammates Daniel Winnik and Mike Santorelli. Both are pending unrestricted free agents headed out the door and both carry cheap cap hits, which is very important to a cap-tight team such as Pittsburgh.
Thing is, they’re hardly alone in eyeing one of those two players for just that reason. It’s believed the Leafs are asking for a second-round pick for each of those players, a fairly high price that some teams are balking at right now, but given the interest, they just might get it from somebody.
If Marc Methot doesn’t re-sign with the Ottawa Senators, he’d be another guy to throw on the list, although the competition would be fierce for his services.
