Extending a member of the league's best PK for an 800k cap hit? W.

That's mutual loyalty between the Pens & Ruhwedel.

League's best PK is Carolina though...

89.9% (Car) vs. 87.1% (Pit)

Still close. Not personally a penguin fan, but I thought they went like a month without letting in a goal while on the PK

Same deal as Bortuzzo, which makes sense.
Decent 3rd pair RD for a hair over minimum isn’t bad any way you look at it.

Solid NHL defenseman who's a proven fit for the team, at just above the league minimum and only a 2-year commitment. Not an impact signing but it seems like money well spent.
