Free agency starts at noon! The frenzy will begin with teams snapping up players.

Among rumored signings with Pittsburgh Penguins ties:

  • The Pens are expected to sign Antti Niemi to be their backup goalie
  • Trevor Daley is said to be going to the Detroit Red Wings for 3 years and about $9 million total
  • Ron Hainsey is believed to be going to the Toronto Maple Leafs
  • Rumors are placing Nick Bonino in Nashville to sign with the Predators

No real word about Chris Kunitz or too much action seemingly around the Pens making any further splashed in the free agency market, which could always change in an instant. Feel free to talk about the day's happenings around the league in the comments below.
