Well, it's getting closer, guys. The annual prospects tournament in which the Penguins participate will get underway three weeks from today in Buffalo, and training-camp drills start seven days after that. Defenseman Marcus Pettersson remains the Penguins' lone unsigned free agent, although Jim Rutherford told our site this week that Pettersson will have a new contract before camp opens. And the Penguins still are waiting to see if they'll have to find a replacement for assistant GM Bill Guerin, who appears to be getting serious considertion for the GM job in Minnesota. There are, then, some interesting subjects to kick around and you guys have a pretty nice challenge in front of you -- trying to match, or even surpass, the quality of the questions and observations that you shared in this forum last Friday.
Post questions at your convenience, and I will answer them over the course of the day.
