Penguins right winger Bill Guerin re-signed with the Penguins for a one-year deal worth $2 million.
The Penguins don't figure to be terribly active when the NHL's free-agency signing period begins tomorrow.
If general manager Ray Shero has many more days like yesterday, he won't have any reason to be.
Shero finalized a one-year, $2 million contract with right winger Bill Guerin last night, just hours after working out a two-year deal worth $550,000 per year with fourth-line forward Craig Adams.
Both players took a pay cut. Guerin, acquired from the New York Islanders for a third-round draft choice March 4, made $4.5 million last season while Adams, picked up on waivers from Chicago the same day, earned $600,000.
Both would have become unrestricted free agents if they hadn't been re-signed by tomorrow.
