Free agent Odelein to the Pens

Pittsburgh Penguins keep on adding experience to their roster with the hiring of tough defenseman Lyle Odelein.

Pens badly need to improve their defensive unit but I'm sure they know Odelein will not suddenly make them a serious contender. At 37, he is not as tough as he used to be but he has developed his defensive skills through the years and will be able to help youngsters. Always a question mark next to an experienced but aging player.

Mario, get a big goalie to support Thibault and I'll put money down on you. Otherwise, you just make the opposing team's strategy easy to play. No confusion there. Don't you dream of Barasso?
