Former Edmonton Oilers' and Florida Panthers' winger and NHL heavy weight Steve MacIntyre signed a one year, 2 way deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins last night. MacIntyre will earn $600,000 at the NHL level
MacIntyre is still the same big guy with a big heart that played in Edmonton, and there is now one less player in the league who will fight him with the tragic passing of Derek Boogaard. How many fights Smac will get this year is yet to be seen, but thoughts likely go to Sydney Crosby's lost season this past year. I'm not convinced that that injury could have been avoided by having a MacIntyre.
