With the trade deadline on the horizon, there's been a lot or rumors involving Jake Guentzel and his future in Pittsburgh. As we look into the possible destinations for the forward, a top team reportedly got out of the derby.

The Pittsburgh Penguins Won't Trade Jake Guentzel to the Edmonton Oilers

While many Oilers fans hoped to see their GM Ken Holland go after Guentzel at the deadline, it looks like it won't happen, according the Frank Seravalli.


"I don't really think Jake Guentzel is an option. As a pure rental, I don't see them being in that mix. First off, they can't afford him, and second, I don't think he would want to re-sign in Edmonton anyway. In pencil, cross him off the list."

Fortunately, other teams should be interested.

If the Penguins do decide to trade him, they'll probably have a few options on the table. Teams like the Colorado Avalanche, Vegas Golden Knights, Detroit Red Wings, Vancouver Canucks, and the Carolina Hurricanes have already inquired about Guentzel.

As the deadline approaches and players move between teams, the list of candidates for a top forward on the trade market is getting shorter. Guentzel is one of a kind and he could play an important role for any team in the playoffs. His current injury could also come into consideration.

We'll just have to wait and see what Kyle Dubas does next.

Stay tuned.
