"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Guess he will retire when he plays at least one game on every team in the NHL.

This move makes no sense for the Pens, but if he is on ice when we score on Pitt... I say "Let him stay!"

I like Odelin and he will help Pittsburgh especially if they pair him with Gonchar.

I was wrong to ever doubt the powers of Lou Lamoriello.
