The waiting game continues.
Agent Petr Svoboda spoke with Penguins GM Ray Shero within the past hour but the Penguins were not informed of a decision during the most recent discussion, sources close to the situation indicated.
Svoboda indicated in the 3:00 p.m. hour that he would be reaching out to Shero soon and he did, but with no answer for now.
All indications are that the Penguins offer remains on the table and they have no interest in pulling the offer.
The Red Wings, Canadiens and at least two others teams are seriously in the mix.
The Penguins also intend to keep the offer on the table through at least tomorrow.
