Rent-a-Recchi Returned to Pittsburgh

Today the Pittsburgh Penguins announced the signing of Mark Recchi, beginning his third tenure on the Pens, and quite likely, one that will be as short as the second. At his age, and given the improbability of the Penguins contending for a Cup next spring, he's a sure bet to be a hot commodity at the trading deadline once again.

Maybe he just enjoys going to the Steelers games, but Recchi's contribution to the Pens this season isn't likely to be any different than last year's; a pair of young players by way of trade, and a draft pick down the road.
