    Following Mike's lead, here is how the Penguins came to be.

    projected starters 2017/18 season

    Ryan O'Reilly - trade with ANA
    Nate Mackinnon - drafted, 1st overall
    Max Domi - drafted, 9th overall
    Chris Kreider - trade with WSH
    Nick Bjugstad - drafted, 17th overall
    Justin Williams - signed as UFA
    Sven Baertschi - trade with WSH
    Boone Jenner - trade with SJS
    Jannick Hansen - trade from so long ago, I cant recall with who
    Brendan Perlini - drafted, 15th overall
    William Karlsson - trade with OTT
    Joonas Donskoi - drafted, 85th overall

    Domi - O'Reilly - Mackinnon
    Kreider - Bjugstad - Williams
    Baertschi - Jenner - Hansen
    Perlini - Karlsson - Donskoi

    Brent Burns - trade with FLA
    Chris Tanev - trade with DET
    Ryan Murray - drafted 4th overall
    Tyson Barrie - trade with COL
    Ben Hutton - drafted 106th overall
    Alex Petrovic - drafted 37th overall

    Tanev - Burns
    Murray - Barrie
    Hutton - Petrovic

    Corey Schneider - monster 3 way deal with SJS & BOS
    Al Montoya - signed as UFA

    A good combination of trades and drafted players. I am most proud that I have been able to run this team with very few UFA and having won the Cup with the lowest payroll in the league.

    My team is not nearly as good (and much more expensive) heading into this season as last but I have room to add again at the deadline if we are in the right position.

    Impressive that only two pieces came via free agency - which helps explain how you were able to win it all with the lowest payroll. That feat so going to be extremely hard for anyone else to match - Jeff might have a shot if he can contend this year or next, that's about it.
