The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned forward Miroslav Satan to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League (AHL), it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.
>> team release
The Penguins are trying to save their season right now, and with Bill Guerin's $4.5-million salary coming in, this is the best way for them to free up payroll space.
As I said earlier today, Guerin's a slight upgrade over Satan — which isn't saying much. He's 38 years old, so expecting him to turn Pittsburgh's season around is expecting too much.
