Well Pittsburgh's Defense is quite a bit better since they got Martin (New Jersey's #1) and Michalek, another top-4 guy. Gonchar is gone, but he's 36-37 now so his play will likely decline as Martin continues to play during his prime few years here.

Forwards wont be as strong, but since their leading scorer (scoring winger) after Malkin Staal and Crosby had 45 pts, I cant see any problems with putting in some of their cheap players, prospects with Kunitz and Dupuis to play on the top 2 lines, they probably wont do worse than Fedotenko, Ponikarovsky, Guerin etc.

Dont know if theyll win the division but theyll likely finish in the 3rd-6th place in the East somewhere.

Also they should have a bit of cap flexibility if they plug in some cheap players in their 2 remaining top 6 spots, could have ~1 million in space, which means they can make a significant move at the deadline in 2011 if its needed.

With Jordan Staal out for the start of training camp,(possibly start of the season).....

With Jordan Staal set to miss at least part of training camp with a foot injury, the Pittsburgh Penguins have found a replacement as they have signed veteran centre Mike Comrie to a one-year contract worth $500,000.

Comrie's agent Ritch Winter told TSN that his client agreed to sign for substantially less than the $1.25 million he earned last season with the Edmonton Oilers because he believed it would help the team. Winter also said that Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has already contacted Comrie to welcome him to the team.

It has been a whirlwind summer for the 29-year old Comrie who tied the knot with Hollywood star Hillary Duff in August.

In 43 games with the Oilers last season, the Edmonton native had 13 goals and eight assists. In 568 career games split between the Oilers, Coyotes, Flyers, Senators and Islanders, Comrie has 167 goals and 192 assists.

Comrie was originally selected in the third round, 91st overall by the Oilers in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
