The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed Jack Johnson on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a contract buyout. Johnson has three years remaining on his contract, meaning a buyout will carry through the 2025-26 season. Insurance issues, amongst other things held up the eventful deal of Patrick Hornqvist to the Panthers for Michael Matheson and Colton Sceviour.

The Vegas Golden Knights are doing whatever they can to try and convince free-agent Alex Pietrangelo to join their team.

Lafferty is still waivers-exempt and could potentially be sent down to the AHL,but  it is a safe bet that he is in Pittsburgh for good. GM Jim Rutherford released a statement on the deal: We were pleased with Evan’s play during his brief stint with us last season.

Though there was some speculation that the team could leave Murray unqualified, it never did seem very likely.

The Penguins will still be active in the trade market as they have to shore up their goaltender duo.

After making a qualifying offer to restricted free agent Sam Lafferty, the Pittsburgh Penguins have now come to terms on a contract extension with the young forward. October 9, 2020 at 12:33 pm CDT | by Gavin Lee 7 Comments.

They also were facing a very similar situation with regards to expansion and would have had to expose one of Murray or Jarry to the Seattle Kraken if they kept them both. Sometimes what I’m told doesn’t jive with publicly stated goals. | PHN+, Undoing or Creating Mistakes? That comment got an explosive response from Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella, who said Rutherford must be a “(expletive) magician” for having insight into the team’s decision making from “three hours away.” Unfortunately, it appears as though the Penguins have come to the same conclusion the Blue Jackets did. With such a strong free agent pool of tendies, expect a trade closer to October 9th. Penguins GM Jim Rutherford released a statement on the deal: Mark is another versatile player that gives us an option at the center position.

The 26-year-old was originally a first-round pick in 2012 and scored 17 goals as a rookie in 2017-18. The Penguins do save a little more than $2MM in cap space for each of the next two seasons (and about $1.3MM in 2022-23) but will have to carry a penalty for three extra seasons thanks to the unfortunate contract. The 24-year-old made his NHL debut last season, getting into eight games with the Penguins where he scored his first career goal while logging just shy of six minutes per contest in playing time.  He was productive with their AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton thought, potting 16 goals in just 48 games.

Of course, he’ll be making money even if he doesn’t sign a new deal thanks to this buyout. @NHL @NHLNetwork ..

He’s much more suited to a depth role, but should attract some interest on the open market. Murray, who is a pending restricted free agent, was already issued a qualifying offer from the Penguins this week, an offer that will travel with him to Ottawa. Gruden is certainly an interesting addition as well. Pontus Aberg, Anthony Angello, Sam Lafferty, Sam Miletic and Matt Murray have all received offers and will be restricted free agents. More deals to come as GM, Jim Rutherford hasn't put down the phone. I know the reason why. Two cups later, Matt Murray is likely on his way out of Pittsburgh.

What Scouts and Professionals Say | PHN+, Analysis: The Argument FOR the Penguins Free Agent Signings, Rutherford Full of Surprises but is this Mission Impossible?

Murray was always going to be traded this offseason, given the $3.75MM qualifying offer he required. While Lafferty’s new $750K AAV is actually a reduction from his prior NHL cap hit of $768K, it is a one-way contract that promises the local product more guaranteed money than his entry-level deal. Lafferty’s low cap hit will also make him a more valuable asset to the cap-strapped Penguins this year. Sometimes I hear things which don’t comport with things I understand to be true. Still just 26, Murray has a championship pedigree from his time with the Penguins and will stabilize the net of a team that is quickly building an incredible prospect base. The two-day delay after leaking is a rare move and so is Kevin Weekes breaking trades before anyone else... ** Breaking News**As per what I’m told - the @penguins are trading F Patric Hornqvist to @FlaPanthers in exchange for D Mike Matheson. Those two sides seemed destined for a breakup, but there is real value here for the Penguins even in a limited role. The Penguins have decided to hand the net to Tristan Jarry and didn’t have enough cap space to keep both goaltenders in the fold. Rutherford dealt Hornqvist after the rugged winger agreed to play in Florida. Though the contract is not in place yet, the Senators are expected to sign Murray to an extension, giving them a new starting goaltender for the 2020-21 season and beyond.

Lafferty played 50 games with Pittsburgh in his rookie season, recording 13 points, and he will look to win and retain a full-time role again next season.

An undrafted free agent signing by the Buffalo Sabres out of Boston University, he has 72 points in 199 career NHL games including a career-high of 29 in the 2018-19 season. Copyright © 2020 National Hockey Now, LLC and Pittsburgh Sports Now, LLC.

In a year where goaltenders are available by the dozen, the Penguins will land another strong prospect on day two of the draft by nabbing a pick that originally belonged to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Pittsburgh needed to add some depth forwards in free agency, but Jankowski could actually still be more than just a fourth-line option. Even at $3.75MM he could still draw plenty of trade interest given his history of success—two Stanley Cup championships before your rookie status runs out will do that. He has signed a one-year deal worth just $700K. The Toronto Maple Leafs are working the phones and getting more prepared for the NHL Draft and the start of free-agency.

The reason the Penguins couldn’t afford to give him one is the risk of arbitration, where Simon likely would have received a cap hit the team deemed too high.

Henrik Lundqvist has been the King of New York City since he was drafted 205th overall in the 7th round of the 2000 NHL entry draft. If you think a second-round selection is a pretty good return for the Penguins, it is. The Penguins seem determined to make Tristan Jarry the starter next season, with Murray being all but traded already by GM Jim Rutherford. Sceviour provides some depth on their right side and Matheson slots in as their 2nd highest paid defenseman. Johnson, 33, recorded some of the worst possession metrics in the NHL during his time in Pittsburgh, struggling at both ends of the rink. After playing only in the NHL in 2018-19, Gaudreau played exclusively in the minors last season, getting into 42 games with AHL Milwaukee, posting 11 goals and 17 assists.  He has 84 career regular season games under his belt all with Nashville over parts of three seasons.  His most prominent NHL performance came in the 2017 playoffs where he had three goals in eight games. Though his offense has dropped off since then, he is a legitimate NHL forward that will now be extremely inexpensive for the Penguins.
