Penguins Update: Where We Stand Today

With nothing in particular to write about and curious about how our Penguins look at the present, I decided to compile an organizational depth chart. Kind of an on-the-fly glance at our prospective team. According to CapFriendly.com, the Pens currently have a cap hit of $64,620,000, with $10,380,000 in available cap space.
