Trade: Hextall is looking to acquire one of these forwards, could a transaction save the Pens' third line?

The Pens haven't been involved a lot in transaction discussions, until now. General Manager Ron Hextall is interested in acquiring one of these three Coyotes forwards: Nick Ritchie, Nick Bjugstad and Barrett Hayton. Bjugstad has played 45 games with the Penguins over the course of two seasons. Hayton and Ritchie would be better options when it comes to offensive productivity, they both are aggressive players that would fit the third line very well since it lacks finishing and productivity.

Hayton, being only 22, he has tons of potential and it would give him a good opportunity to develop his game. As for Bjugstad, he's a more versatile player, but this might not be exactly what the Pens are seeking in a new forward.
