    Default Pens looking for top 6 fwd

    Numerous stories and write ups regarding the Pens looking for a Guentzel replacement.

    Kreider
    Toffoli
    Athenasaou (sp?)

    Seem to be getting some attention out there on the various bogs and columns. Anybody see anything else?

    Lol. Not sure how that’d make Pens fans feel.

    I’d have to think Kreider and Toffoli are the front runners. Just not sure what the Pens have that the Rangers would want in a deal. They going to want a relatively hefty return for Kreider I think. Would probably have to start with draft picks, probably an unprotected 1st rounder to start. What they could add to that though I’m not sure.

    Don’t think NY will have much interest in like POulin. Don’t see them wanting Rust or McCaan or whatever either.

    So even though Kreider might be there top target, which there’s a chance he is, I’m just us the not sure Pens have what it would take to get that done.

    Toffoli might be more likely based on that. Lol, I’m sure the Kings would be ok getting Murray or Jarry.

    Was thinking maybe the Devils would move Palmieri, Bratt or something. Boston might have a winger to move. I think Saad could be a good fit too if Hawks would consider moving him.

    Lots of names you coukd put near the top of many teams wish lists.

    JG Pageau
    Josh Anderson
    Sam Bennett
    Wayne Simmonds

    And it's not a trade list if Jason Zuckers name isn't on it.

    Lol all good possibilities too.

    I totally wouldn’t rule out Zucker.

    A shame the Pens didn’t keep Kessel. It looks as though they need him and based on how he has played, he needs them. I’m curious if they inquired about Hall. Seeing what the Yotes gave up for him, I do think the Pens could have afforded him. Unless there’s cap issues. Man, Hall could really flourish in the Pens top 6. A shame.

    If I’m Pageau I’m not sure I’d want to go anywhere right now. He’s having the season of his career and getting top minutes. If he went to Pens he’d lose some minutes and priority I think. There’d be no guarantee he could even continue this with a new team. If I’m Pageau I would be wary of changing my underwear let alone my team for fear of regression.

    Bennett actually a very interesting one. I could see the right destination for him completely turning around his career. Kind of like McCann.

    With that in mind, I’d also consider RNH if I’m the Pens. He might benefit from a change also.

    Not sure where San Jose stands, up they probably have a couple of wingers they could move. Maybe Labanc?

    Anaheim, between Jones, Comtois, Terry, Ritchie, Kane etc..

    A shame Ferland went to Vancouver, he could do well with Pit.

    Garland, Hinostroza, Fischer or Grabner from the Yotes. ID love to see what Fischer could turn into in the top 6 with Crosby or Malkin. I honestly think he could be a huge coup and blossom in Pit.

    There’s really quite a lot of players I could see going to the Pens and flourishing.

    Heiden, Coyle, Lucic, Okposo, Niederieter, Atkinson, Bjorkstrand, Parise, Brown, Tatar, Ghallager and many more.

    I wonder if the Stars would move Radulov or Benn. Well, if the Pens could even afford either. Would be sick addition to the Pens though. They can send back Rust and some draft picks lol.

    Ya I don’t see JGP going there as he would end up as. 3C there? Unless I suppose the could move Gino to wing on Sids line again and have him as 2C

    Josh Anderson is interesting tho.

    Galchenyuk going back the other way?
    If it's Toffoli, totally makes sense for LA to end up massively overpaying a defunct player (Kovy, Phaneuf, Richards, Gaborik)

    Didn’t realize he’s from the area. Makes even more sense now. I think he’d be a great fit on the ice and it would possibly be the right formula to keep him consistent. Him being from there a huge plus. But I guess rarely do things work out so neatly.

    Was thinking JvR another possibility, but they’d never trade with each other. I don’t think at least.

    I guess the Kings would make a great deal of sense in both directions. It seems more likely a player in these mid tiers would end up being the PEns target. Although I’d love to see them make some crazy splash like Wheeler. Can Eric Staal play on the wing? Was trying to think of some older vets who might want a shot at a cup before they retire. Although there probably isn’t a very good chance that’s a what ends up happening. The players being reported sound about right. But damn, would Wheeler or Benn look amazing playing with Sid or Malkin?

    My money still on Toffoli. I’d lean towards Kreider but I really don’t see anything the Rangers might want that the Pens would trade. Looks like better fits with LA.

    seeing as Wheeler and Benn make basically double Toffoli or Kreider & Pitts is cap-strapped. There's no way. Not to mention both Dallas and Wpg are in a similar playoff battle and need those stars themselves.
    Just no chance.

    Hoffman is another name that is or should be out there. Whether tied to Pitts or not is a different story.
    UFA at the end of the season and Fla has some kids kicking at the door.
    They can only sign one of Hoff or Dadanov.

    Yea, ‘‘twas just a pipe dream. As far as their cap situation, I’m sure they’ll try to offload what they could. But they are going to have to be a bit frugal yea. They’d still have to shed a bit to get Kreider I thought. But either way, the fantasy value of whomever it ends up being is going to skyrocket. I’d have to imagine any of these targets being named would move ahead of Rust and Hornqvist in many situations. At least I’d hope.
