Pens Points: Arbitration edition

Dumoulin and Sheary opt for arb as expected and other happenings around the Pittsburgh Penguins

Don Wright-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, Conor Sheary and Brian Dumoulin have opted for arbitration. We now wait to see when their hearing dates will be, but the team and players' reps can negotiate up to that time and most filings don't actually result in the process completing so it's wait and see mode. [Trib Live]

Last season was a bit of a lost year due to injuries, but don't forget about prospect Thomas Di Pauli who's looking to try and make his NHL impact as early as this season in Pittsburgh. [Trib]

In signing news around the league:

Edmonton locks up Connor McDavid for 8 years and $100 million. Could McD hit 1,000 points by the time this is over? Would be nice to live in a world where rules were such that NHL players could routinely score 100+ points again, wouldn't it? []

...But did McDavid who signed the richest cap hit yet (at $12.25 million AAV) take too much money that will hurt the Oilers? [Copper and Blue]

After being on the trade block, Alex Galchenyuk gets a 3 year contract ($4.9 million AAV) from the Montreal Canadiens. []
