RECCHI'S FUTURE WITH PENS IN QUESTION.
PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE: Dave Molinari reports Mark Recchi's decline in ice time (a healthy scratch in four of the Penguins last five games) prompted his agent, Rick Curran, to discuss Recchi's future with GM Ray Shero. Curran wouldn't elaborate as to the details of the discussion and Shero was unavailable for comment.
Spector's Note: While Curran said the talks were confidential, it wouldn't surprise me if the subject of a trade was part of it. Recchi re-signed with the Penguins as at this stage of his career he didn't want to leave Pittsburgh but he may have to consider that option if he hopes to continue playing this season. While his age and declining production this season is a concern Recchi is still highly regarded around the league and he has an affordable salary. A team seeking a top six forward (hello there, Ottawa Senators) might be interested in his services.
