NHL Rumors: Pittsburgh Penguins Not Done Making Moves Yet

The Pittsburgh Penguins are far from done when it comes to shaping their roster for the upcoming NHL season.

While immediate trade activity isn't expected before the season's start, there are pressing concerns that may lead to transactions later in the fall or during the season.

One significant focus is the need to boost their offense within the bottom-six forwards while navigating the constraints of a tight salary cap.

Simultaneously, the Penguins are actively seeking to reinforce the right side of their third defensive pairing, with options like Chad Ruhwedel and Mark Pysyk under consideration.

The team is aware of the financial constraints and is determined to make cost-effective moves.

Notably, players like Marcus Pettersson, along with left-shot defensemen Ty Smith and Will Butcher are potential trade assets.

The Penguins' new GM, Kyle Dubas, known for strategic moves, may follow the footsteps of his predecessor, Jim Rutherford, by exploring trades during the season to address these roster concerns.
