NHL Trade Rumor: Alex Galchenyuk to Pittsburgh Penguins

According to The Fourth Period's David Pagnotta, the Pittsburgh Penguins have been linked to Arizona's Alex Galchenyuk.

Interesting to note, the Penguins had serious interest in Galchenyuk before Montreal dealt him to Arizona last summer, Pagnotta stated on Twitter. 
The prime target Arizona has is Penguins' Phil Kessel, he's been linked to Arizona for the past few seasons. Arizona would be willing to part ways with Galchenyuk since he hasn't quite lived up to what Arizona has expected after the first season of the Domi-Galchenyuk trade last summer. 

In my opinion, I think Pittsburgh would have to add more than just Kessel for this trade to go through. Galchenyuk lead the team in goals and was third in points this past season. Kessel is a good player, don't get me wrong, but is older, and has a bigger cap hit than Galchenyuk.

Could we see Galchenyuk wearing the Penguins uniform sometime soon?
