Penguins Top Trade Targets ahead of Trade Deadline

The Pittsburgh Penguins haven't been involved in many rumours ahead of the March 8 trade deadline, and while it's possible that they become sellers and move players like Jake Guentzel, they could also be buyers.

Potential trade targets for the Pittsburgh Penguins



While the Penguins find themselves at No. 6 in the league for goals allowed per game this season at 2.70, defense is seemingly a major need ahead of the deadline, especially with players expected to return from injury and get called up from the AHL.

Now, Inside the Penguins has taken their chance to look at some potential trade additions on the blue line, and given the limited assets that they have to use, there's some intriguing names in here.



Would any of these players move the needle for Pittsburgh?



The Penguins are just six points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, so if they buy smart, they could push for a playoff spot, but these are the names that Inside the Penguins noted as potential options.

Ilya Lyubushkin, Anaheim Ducks.
Alexandre Carrier, Nashville Predators.
Matt Dumba, Arizona Coyotes.
Jakob Chychrun, Ottawa Senators

On paper, all four of these players could help the Penguins if they can manage to land them at an affordable price, but right now, it appears as though the next five weeks will define the season for the Penguins.

Ultimately, the team may either sell off some veterans on expiring contracts or buy low on some talented players, and if they choose the latter, all four names listed here could be intriguing options for a team chasing one final Stanley Cup with this talented veteran core.
