The Penguins, with Kyle Dubas at the helm, are eager to secure a valuable addition to their lineup. The trade speculation currently looks as follows:

PENGUINS Receive: Erik Karlsson ($9 Million AAV)
SHARKS Receive: Pierre-Olivier Joseph, 2 1st round picks and Mikael Granlund

The stakes are high as the Penguins could surrender a significant amount in an effort to help Sidney Crosby clinch another Stanley Cup.


The Stable Core of the Penguins



Crosby, Letang, and Malkin, the formidable core of the Penguins, have been an integral part of the team since Crosby's recruitment. Their combined efforts have secured three cups. Yet, for the first time in 16 years, they missed the playoffs last year.


With Crosby, the Penguins' aim to win the Stanley Cup each year he is on the team seems like a rational objective. However, whether Karlsson will be part of the Penguins' journey in the upcoming year is a decision that hangs in the balance.
