Right Wing: Devin Setoguchi

The former #8 overall pick of the 2005 draft is someone the Penguins should keep an eye on going into free agency. Setoguchi has found himself bounced around the league quite a bit recently.

He started his career with San Jose and has been on three other teams over the past 5 years (Wild, Jets, Flames). This past season he only played 12 games, where he was unable to find the back of the net or find any consistency. The Flames put him on waivers and no one claimed him.  When he was on waivers there was rumor that the Pittsburgh Penguins had interest in picking him up, but it never happened. So why not give him a chance now? This guy is a proven goal scorer in the NHL. He was a 20+ goal scoring machine from 2008-2012.

Devin Setoguchi would be well worth his cheap cap hit of only $750,000. He may be due for a revival tour, similar to Blake Comeau this past season.  This is an option I would look at if I were Jim Rutherford. Here is a short goal video.
