Two of the more promising young players in the Penguins' system, forward Jayson Megna and defenseman Philip Samuelsson, were re-signed Thursday.

Each player was a restricted free agent and received one-year, two-way deals.

Megna, who has five goals in 36 NHL games, will receive $874,125 at the NHL level.

Samuelsson, who played briefly with the Penguins last season, will earn $550,000 if he plays with the NHL club.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
