It has been reported by sources that Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ray Shero has been discussing a new contract for veteran winger/center Craig Adams. They will have negotiations into Monday to see if they can find good ground on a deal for the pending unrestricted free agent.
Adams, 36, wants a two-year contract, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review‘s Rob Rossi.
This should not be a tough negotiation for the Penguins. Adams is a fourth-liner and a very good penalty-killer and if the Penguins were to let him go, they would not be the same on the PK. Hopefully this can be a very short process for the Penguins as they still have to talk Matt Cooke and Pascal Dupuis into staying for the Penguins.
What will happen? Free agency begins Friday, so this will probably be a short process for the Penguins.
