Pittsburgh struggling to survive
With a player payroll among the league's lowest the Pens don't have much more room to slash salaries.
A day after the Penguins traded their second-highest-paid player, Martin Straka, to the Los Angeles Kings for prospects, the team announced that Mario Lemieux will decline about $4.75 million in salary as the Penguins chief operating officer and CEO. Even with the adjustment, the Penguins said they will lose $5 million this season.
