Major trade proposal emerges online sending Guentzel to Canadian powerhouse

The trade deadline is a month away and the Pittsburgh Penguins remain out of the playoffs as of right now despite their best efforts and great play recently. Jake Guentzel has been the topic of the NHL as he is a pending UFA and if a contract extension doesn't come in the next month, he can see himself out of Pittsburgh and become one of the hottest names on the NHL Trade Bait Board. Via Instagram, a trade proposal emerged sending Guentzel to the Oilers.

Guentzel to play with Mcdavid and company in Edmonton



In the hockey world they always say never say never, and we can never know what will really happen. If Guentzel's name becomes available for trade, it's safe to expect that the surging Oilers will be amongst teams calling, and may possibly have the assets to get a possible deal done. Oilers who went on a 16 game winning streak ended their streak last night by losing to the reigning Stanley Cup Champions the Vegas Golden Knights.

On instagram, the trade was the following:


Trade Proposal

Oilers recieve: Jake Guentzel

Penguins recieve: Philip Broberg, Xavier Bourgault, 2024 1st, 2nd and 5th


In this deal the Penguins would add two under 24 players under their already thin prospect pipeline. Bourgault, who was a former first round pick in 2021, never really got an opportunity to play with the big club in Edmonton. Broberg, former 8th overall pick in 2019 sees himself in a similar path as Bourgault who is yet to recieve a chance from Edmonton. A change of scenery can benefit both the players and the Penguins.
