Penguins GM Kyle Dubas "Looking For Fresh Bottom-Six And Bottom-Pairing Blood At Every Turn"

Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Kyle Dubas is on a relentless quest to rejuvenate the team's depth, particularly in the bottom-six forward lines and bottom-pairing defense positions.

According to Josh Yohe of The Athletic, Penguins GM Kyle Dubas is “living on the waiver wire these days, looking for fresh bottom-six and bottom-pairing blood at every turn”.

Despite significant offseason changes, which included notable acquisitions like Erik Karlsson and Reilly Smith, the Penguins have stumbled out of the gate with a 2-3-0 record in their first five games.

This early-season underperformance has prompted key players such as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to voice their discontent, adding urgency to Dubas's efforts, according to Lyle Richardson.

Dubas, facing salary cap constraints, is actively scouring the waiver wire for cost-effective solutions to strengthen the roster.

His determination to address these shortcomings reflects his dissatisfaction with the team's current state.

Penguins fans and experts are closely watching these roster adjustments, hoping that Dubas's search for fresh talent will inject new life into the team and help them contend for success in the season ahead. Photo Credit: Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports
