NHL Trade Rumors: Penguins' Olli Maatta on trade block

According Sportsnet's Ryan Dixon, the Pittsburgh Penguins have put defenceman Olli Maatta on the trade block after Maatta has fallen out of favor in Pittsburgh.

Dixon writes that Maatta is being shopped by Pittsburgh after he and the Pittsburgh organization have had a falling out.
Maatta has completely fallen out of favour in Pittsburgh on a team that is always looking for ways to create cap space, Dixon stated. And hits the off-season determined to shake things up. His age (25 in August) and pedigree as a 2012 first rounder would garner him another look on their own. Now consider this is a player who's won a pair of rings and saw the third-most minutes of any Penguins blue-liner during the team's title runs just two years ago.
Dixon also stated that due to his multiple injuries, Maatta and head coach Mike Sullivan haven't seen eye-to-eye much, and his injuries have affected atrociously his trade value.

Could your team use Maatta at their blue-line?
