Could the Bruins be close to signing Miroslav Satan?

New, comments

NESN.com is reporting that there is "a very solid rumor" that the Bruins are close to signing free agent left winger Miroslav Satan. The 35-year old Slovakian was waived by the Pittsburgh Penguins at the end of last year and did not find a new home in the off-season. Satan netted 17 goals in 65 games for Pittsburgh last season.

Although the terms of the rumored deal are not known, the potential cap hit for a move like this seems pretty low and far outweighs the risk. Don't expect him to score 35-40 goals like he did a few years, but it doesn't hurt to have another veteran that was the ability to put the puck in the net.
