Asham gets a deal while Kennedy waits

Guess Tim Kennedy's agent really blew this one. While the pride of South Buffalo sits home unemployed because he foolishly was told he was a million-dollar player, former Flyers winger Arron Asham -- an established player on a team that made the Stanley Cup finals -- signed a one-year, $700,000 deal with the Penguins Friday. 

Asham had 10 goals and 14 assists last year. Kennedy had 10 goals, 16 assists. Looks like a million is not the going rate for 26-point rookies. 

One other point: One year and $700,000 was what it took to get a guy with edge like Asham? Wish the Sabres would have gotten in on that action. There has been chatter they were involved. But I guess watching Drew Stafford muddle through another season will be worth twice the price.
