You know how Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford admitted to falling short when it came to furnishing his roster with puck-moving defensemen? He at least tried to address that problem on the same night that Mike Sullivan debuted as their head coach.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie fills in some details: Pittsburgh retains $1.125 million of Scuderi’s cap hit.
Scuderi is a familiar face for the Blackhawks, as he was a member of the Los Angeles Kings during the two teams’ memorable playoff skirmishes. Chicago fans may be most excited about shaving off a bit more salary, as Daley and Scuderi bring home fairly comparable cash.
