There's now more evidence than ever Rob Scuderi's play throughout the playoff run did not go unnoticed. According to Rob Rossi, a few teams rumored to be in on the shot-blocking defenseman include the Minnesota Wild, Dallas Stars, New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Minnesota Wild shouldn't come as much a surprise, seeing as how former Pittsburgh AGM Chuck Fletcher is now running things. Similar to the Wild, the Dallas Stars have plenty of cap room available to make a serious bid on Scuds. The Rangers - well, what players (aside from Nik Antropov) aren't they rumored to have some interest in? As for the Lightning, I guess they just enjoy picking up Pittsburgh's UFA's every year.
Although Hooks reported that Scuds will give Pitt the last chance to bid, I can't see how they will be able to match any offers from teams with as much cap room as the Wild, Stars and Lightning.
