Report: Penguins put a lot of players on market following series loss

According to the Athletic's Rob Rossi, the Pittsburgh Penguins view just two of their players as untouchables for other clubs for upcoming trades. Those two players are surely enough Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

Although Rossi believes that both Jake Guentzel and netminder Matt Murray are unlikely to be dealt this summer, there is still a lot of speculation to come after this disappointing post-season. Rossi believes that Pittsburgh's number one priority is to sign Murray long-term sooner rather than later.

Following a 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders, forward Phil Kessel was asked if he believes he could be dealt this coming off-season.
That's a tough question to start, but I don't know at this point. We'll see how it goes this summer, the forward stated. I've never worried about it. Obviously, two years in a row it didn't go the way we wanted it to. We'll see.
Last summer, the Penguins were exploring possible trade destinations for Kessel, and according Rossi and multiple sources, it was seeming like he was going to be dealt to the Arizona Coyotes.

Do you think the Penguins will do a fire sale this off-season, or will they stay put with the group of players they have now?
