Straka Traded for Salary Dump

The last remaining fan-beloved Pittsburgh Penguin was traded today to the LA Kings. Marin Straka and his $4.2 million salary had to go in return for 2 minor leagers.

Straka just wasn't producing much in a Penguins uniform and missing Mario Lemieux's help. He will try and turn it around personally on a struggling Kings team that has a lot of players on the Injured Reserve. If he could play with quick players Deadmarsh, Palffy, and/or Robitaille then the Kings could contend for a playoff spot in the West this year.
