Pascal Dupuis: Not Close To Deal With Penguins

Rotowire.com
Update: The Penguins and Dupuis remain far apart on terms of a new contract, making it likely the winger will test the free agent market, KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reports.

Recommendation: The expected signing of defenseman Kris Letang leaves Pittsburgh without wiggle room to sign Dupuis. Coming off a career year at age 34, Dupuis will be looking at one final payday. Due to a fairly weak free agent market, he'll probably get the contract he desires, both in terms of years and money. Dupuis netted 20 goals, 38 points and a league-leading plus-31 rating in 48 games with Pittsburgh in 2012-13.
