Last nights humiliating defeat set the standard in Pittsburgh, showing them that it is finally time to change things up within the organization, and it starts with pending UFA and star forward Jake Guentzel. Insider Pierre Lebrun has revealed the teams leading the race to acquire him.

Lebrun reveals landing spots for Guentzel



Jake Guentzel has been the talk of trade rumours for several weeks, and it seems like it will be coming to a close now until Friday. Lebrun stated that two pacific powerhouses are amongst the leaders in the race to acquire Jake Guentzel.

Belief is that trade chatter surrounding Jake Guentzel has picked up, with the Canucks and VGK being seen as two of the best fits for him. Per, Pierre Lebrun.




Vegas have Mark Stone on IR, which can give them leverage in a Guentzel trade, allowing them to take on his expensive cap hit.

The Canucks seemed like they were done adding when they acquired Elias Lindholm from the Calgary Flames, but that changed recently after their lack of good play.

The Penguins lost their 3rd straight game in a embarassing loss to the Edmonton Oilers 6-1. After a loss like this, there is no doubt that Kyle Dubas will be busy at the deadline with the team being out of the playoffs.
