The 2011 UFA List: Craig Adams

by: The PensNation Staff

Craig Adams

Not Marian Hossa and not Bill Guerin but Craig Adams may have been the best trade deadline day pickup by Ray Shero and the Penguins in recent history. Not only is he a great team guy whom is always looking out for the best interest of his teammates but he is one of the best if not the best penaly killer on the Penguins roster next to Michalek. Craig Adams may not bring a lot of points to the lineup but what he does bring is heart and determination to do whatever needs done to secure a victory. This season alone Adams lead all forwards with an average of 3:05 shorthanded ice time per game and his 64 blocked shots was tops for all forwards as well, Adams also dealt the 4th most hits of anyone on the team with 171.

If you were to ask either of us we would tell you that next to Mike Rupp, Craig Adams is a must sign guy for Ray Shero this offseason.
