Pens trade Oleksiak to Dallas for a 4th round pick. Essentially clearing about 2 mill in cap space for Pens.

I hope they trade another 1st. There core is in their early 30's. In couple of years they are gonna be done. They have no farm system and they keep trading away all of their picks

Why? They have no good prospects and they are not trading any of their top guys, I'm not too worried about them. Smells more like desperation then anything else

Actually I hope they trade for him. It would only be a rental and it would further damage them in the future as far as picks and whatever prospects they have left go.

I’m not worried about the future. (frank) the future if we don’t win a cup this season is a failure and everyone should be fired.

I hope u are right.. I just would imagine their thought process is win one more with this group and they don't care if they are sacrificing picks etc. That said if they do make a move and fail to win another one it's a win for everyone else... but....

You know, back in Cpt's day they used to value things like spelling, grammar, and boarding the Mayflower

I'm sure it is but I just don't think they have the assets to get somebody like Duchene and if they did it would just be as a rental

I mean they could probably try and move someone like Pearson but that's still not a particularly valuable piece.

They can clear some cap space but I still think they don't have what it takes to get somebody like Duchene. Plus do you really think he would sign there to be the 3rd line center

Dropped 2 million off the Cap and I think they are looking to move Brassard. They will make some kind of change before the deadline. With the core group aging you have to go for it while you can.

That’s the thing what are they giving up besides a late first pick and maybe Matta? They don’t have much to trade. I agree that won’t be enough... For Duchene at least but they’re obviously looking to make a move.

Hello, dead gorilla here.

I'm with Vukota on this one...they can clear all the cap space in the world, but they are severely lacking the assets to be able to acquire an impact player. Their prospects are garbage and their first isn't going to be an early one. All their valuable roster players have NTC/NMC's, except for Guentzel who they literally just signed. I don't know what they could give up that anyone would want.
