NHL Rumors: Penguins Considering Goalie Trade

The Pittsburgh Penguins are 6-6-3 to start the 2022-23 NHL season and frankly it's already been a tale of two seasons. After a torrid start, the Penguins continue to play inconsistent hockey and it's coming from the crease out. Rumor has the Pens are contemplating the goalie market and may be interested in making a move this season.

So far Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith haven't been able to handle the load. Management committed to the core of the team this past summer and the Penguins are strictly in win-now mode. Not having an elite goaltender who can keep the team in games and sometimes steal one, has dampened their hopes so far this year. 

Jarry holds a 4-3-2 record, with a 3.55 GAA and a .900 Sv.%. DeSmith on the other hand, is 2-3-1 with a 2.67 GAA and a .917 Sv.%. He's been given back-to-back starts and it's not clear at this point who the true number one is in Pittsburgh. 

When it comes to potential options, James Reimer of the San Jose Sharks, Joonas Korpisalo of the Columbus Blue Jackets and Anthony Stolarz of the Anaheim Ducks are all three netminders who are available to this point.
