The Penguins have signed Ryan Whitney to a new 6 year deal, valued at $24 million.
This is great news for the long term stability of the blue line. I think Whitney is a small risk, and this deal looks very good in comparison to the Kimmo Timonen deal doled out by the Flyers. That one was 6 years and $37.3 million. That may not be fair, however, I think most deals will look good in comparison to the contracts the Flyers agreed to with Hartnell and Timonen.
