Penguins Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Jake Guentzel

Jake Guentzel has officially been named as a trade candidate, as the star winger was listed on Chris Johnston's latest trade board for The Athletic. Because of this, let's discuss two potential landing spots for him if officially shopped by the Pens now.

Florida Panthers: The Panthers have been actively looking to improve their top six, and bringing in Guentzel would do just that. He would be a beautiful fit on their first line and give them much more scoring in the process. Therefore, keep an eye on Florida in the Guentzel sweepstakes. 

Colorado Avalanche: The Avalanche are expected to go big at the deadline this season. While they have had a good start to the season, they need to improve their top six. Guentzel would be a massive addition to their first line and could slot beautifully playing with Nathan MacKinnon.

We will need to wait and see if either team lands Guentzel from here.
