Penguins contract status

Here is the contract status for each of the players that was on the big club's roster at some point this season (not including the guys we traded away). I sorted them by age.

Here's a fun, yet scary question - how many players from this list do the Pens have under contract beyond next season? The answer is FOUR - Crosby, Whitney, Gonchar and Letang. Obviously, anyone that is a restricted free agent can be kept at the option of the club, but still... only four? I was surprised.

Here's a great reference for looking up these pieces of information:

There is room for #18. I'm sure of it.
