Niedermayer Talks In Preliminary Stages

-The Pittsburgh Penguins continue to talk to the agent of Rob Niedermayer in an effort to sign the veteran forward. Niedermayer, 35, wants assurance that he will be Pittsburgh's third line center in order to keep talking. That would mean that Jordan Staal or Evgeni Malkin would have to move to a wing. Malkin is the most likely one to make the switch. Niedermayer scored ten goals and recorded 22 points in 71 games for the New Jersey Devils.
-Jeff Halpern, a 34 year old center, contacted the Penguins to see if they were interested in him. It is unknown if Pittsburgh is interested because he was limited to only 16 games last year only getting two assists.
