Free-Agent Penguins Make Pitch to Stay


Yohe, Josh, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Forward Max Talbot was the last player to depart the ice at Consol Energy Center following the Game 7 loss to Tampa Bay last week. He looked like a guy begrudgingly saying goodbye to Pittsburgh.

Seemingly all of the Penguins' free agents want to remain here, but the economic reality is that many won't be back.

Talbot, whose popularity and clutch performances have always dwarfed his statistics, might be forced to sign elsewhere but is pining for an offer from the Penguins. He hopes general manager Ray Shero and coach Dan Bylsma decide to keep him around.

"Ray's going to talk with Dan, and we'll see if I'm still in the plan," Talbot said. "It starts with them and everyone knows my position, so it's all going to be about talking."

The Penguins have never approached Talbot about a new contract.

"There's so many positions and only so much salary in the salary cap to go around," said Shero, who said he will begin to make plans for free agency in the coming days.

Talbot isn't the only unrestricted free agent who badly wants to remain with the Penguins.

Winger Pascal Dupuis, like Talbot, helped the Penguins claim the 2009 Stanley Cup and would prefer to continue his career here. A versatile forward capable of playing on any line, Dupuis might receive a raise from his current salary of $1.4 million per season come July 1, when any NHL team can make an offer. With about $55.
