Insider Unveils the Pittsburgh Penguins' High Asking Price for Star Jake Guentzel

With the trade deadline fast approaching, there are always stars on the board where buyers turn their attention to. Among many options, the main options this year are Elias Lindholm, Claude Giroux, Trevor Zegras, Chris Tanev, and many more. It can very much change, if the Pittsburgh Penguins make their star forward available after receiving calls about Jake Guentzel.

The cost to acquire Jake Guentzel



Rick Dhaliwal, Canucks reporter said earlier that teams around the league are hearing the cost for Jake Guentzel would be a first round pick, top prospect and an NHL calibre player. It will cost a premium price to acquire a premium player.




Will a team fold and pull the trigger?



We've seen it before, NHL buyers fold under the pressure and feel the need to overpay to acquire a player to ‘strengthen' their team ahead of the playoffs. Last year it was Timo Meier, where the Devils payed a hefty price to acquire the Swiss forward. Since then, he has been underwhelming.

Jake Guentzel is on a different level however, he's a player who changes the game for your team and can give you an awesome 20 games stretch+ playoff scoring.

We will see many teams calling GM Kyle Dubas, some teams could be the Jets, Canucks, Knights, Hurricanes, etc. Ideally, we think shall he get traded, he will be dealt to a Western Conference team. NHL trade bait lists will have a new Number 1 if the Penguins make Jake Guentzel available via trade! An interesting two months is upon us, but we will watch the Penguins-Guentzel situation very closely.
