Penguins general manager Ray Shero has been very busy this past week. On Wednesday, he signed head coach Dan Bylsma and assistant coaches Tony Granato and Todd Reirden to contract extensions. On Thursday, Shero agreed to terms with superstar center Evgeni Malkin (http://penguins.nhl.com/club/player.htm?id=8471215) on an eight-year, $76 million contract extension.

With the team’s top priorities accomplished, they’ll turn their attention to other matters. The Penguins have a lot of decisions to make in the upcoming days regarding their roster. Several players are unrestricted free agents and Pittsburgh will have to decide whom they want back and at what price.

The most intriguing decision for the Penguins is what to do in regards to All-Star defenseman Kris Letang (http://penguins.nhl.com/club/player.htm?id=8471724), who will be entering the final year of his contract.

The Penguins have several options on the table – re-sign Letang long-term; trade him for assets; or let him play out the final year of his contract.

There is no doubt what the team would prefer.............
