This is a great deal for a young 3rd liner like Heinen. I like this a lot for the penguins.

There have been so many signings today at the league minimum that this deal is currently above the daily average.

Dammit had him as an option to complement Kamf and Mikheyev on our defensive 3rd line

I like the player & a solid 3rd to 4th liner but in an off-season we needed to make improvements .....

So far McGinn, Erod, & Heinen is a BIG downgrade from McCann, Tanev, & Ceci

Hextall needs to make 3-4 Trades to even get this team better, I just dont think he has it in him.

Looks like another 1 and done (hopefully)

Heinen did some good things in BOS. I still have faith in him.

eh... he's competition for the 4th line role.

My guess is the roster looks something like this at this point.

Jake Sid Rust
Zuck, Malkin, Kap
Poulin, Carter, McGinn
ZAR Blueger, ?????? This is where you start looking at options. Heinen probably has the head start here.
But given Sullivan, you'll most likely see Simon in here somewhere because he plays favorites and is clueless about hockey.
I will say one thing, at least they went out and got someone with a little bit of spit and fire. They need a bit more of that.
The real question remaining is what the hell are they doing on the 3RD spot.
As it is right now, I hope they are giving Maniscalco a chance there because the other options suck.

here is hoping the penguins go in on Virtanen as well.
If they are hell bent on not playing the youth we could see.

Jake Sid Rust
Zuck Malkin Kap
McGinn Carter Heinen
ZAR Blueger, Virtanen.

I don't think that's a horrible lineup, one could argue the 3rd line is better than it was last year. Where we had McCann nothing, who ever filled in.
Would the 4th line be as good, probably not, decreased speed. But at least it would maintain it's physicality.

Another good depth add to Pens. I really like it for a low cost. If Heinen plays like he played in Boston, it'll be a steal. Hope so.

Why does he get no love? He's obviously not a world beater and coming off a bad year (but nobody was scoring much in that team). But previous to this year he scored like a pretty decent third liner.
