Pittsburgh Seeking Winger Via Trade?
 
According to ESPN the Penguins are seeking a trade for a winger. It's said that P.A. Parenteau is a possibility.

Parenteau is having a career year and a UFA. Could Pittsburgh be looking for some long-term help, assuming Crosby may be out for awhile?

Maybe Hemsky?

I smell BS, cant be possible, it has to do with malkin coming to Toronto

Chandrashekhar Limit 01-16-2012 10:20 PM

It must be Clowe to Pit, Malkin to Tor.

Boom.

Canucks apparently are making a trade 'soon'.. Maybe something around Raymond and Niskanen? Pure speculation.

Seto 01-16-2012 10:23 PM

Eklund must run the Hockey Department at ESPN.

That is ridiculously tempting. In a matter of a few months, Niskanen went from "TAKE HIM PLEASE" into "Damn, he just needed a new team".

Niskanen has shown a lot of promise. He's made some mistakes, but overall he's shown that he's someone we can't afford to lose...

Raymond is an RFA, isn't he?

Hemsky....

TLinden16 01-16-2012 10:33 PM

Parenteau would be interesting.

Maybe they could drag Ray Whitney out of Phoenix later this season but not right now.

Jules Winnfield 01-16-2012 10:34 PM

Hemsky must've heard Pittsburgh has some of the best hospitals in the country...

:sarcasm:

PWJunior 01-16-2012 10:37 PM

Parenteau to the Penguins does make some sense. The Isles are a lottery team and it would make sense to unload PA when his value is at it's highest. He's a pending UFA and he's cheap - 1.25M. He's not a sexy name, but he can help Pitt. He could fetch a 2nd rounder which is reasonable.

gdsmack267 01-16-2012 10:42 PM

There was a thread on here like 3 weeks ago regarding a Parenteau to pens trade. it just makes a lot of sense for both teams. Penguins get to add some offensive depth going into the playoffs for a cheap cap hit and the Islanders get something for a pending UFA.

I would do Mason Raymond for Matt Niskanen + Craig Adams

Leaves us with a bit of a hole on the 3rd line, but we could probably move a couple picks for a guy like Larose to fill the gap

You would have to fight Dan Byslma in a steel cage match with Gary Roberts as the referee to get Craig Adams. Adams might be a 4th liner who doesn't get more than 10 minutes a game but there is no doubt Bylsma loves him and puts him out there when it counts.

AugustBurnsRed* 01-16-2012 10:45 PM

I have no interest in P.A.

I hate jack edwards.

gdsmack267 01-16-2012 10:52 PM

Parenteau is more of a setup man I believe then a goal scorer. Crosby obviously has shown he can put up a lot of goals so having a good play maker with him could work out. That being said having a guy like raymond who is a fast skater and better shot could look nice along side crosby.

spiny norman 01-16-2012 10:56 PM

As a Penguins fan, I'd much rather have Parenteau than Hemsky.

vecens24 01-16-2012 10:56 PM

Personally don't think Parenteau is a good fit on this team. I think we need more of a sniper than a set up man for the Crosby line, because Kunitz himself is a pretty solid playmaker. Also the reason I don't really want Hemsky.

JeffMangum 01-16-2012 10:56 PM

Link?

Jules Winnfield 01-16-2012 10:58 PM

I still think the best winger on the market that can play in Bylsma's system is Ruutu. Can't discount the wingers in the past who didn't work out for Bylsma. They all seemed to lack aggression and solid 2 way play.

Yeah he would be ideal coming back for us. We need that 4th liner who can play a solid defensive game. Our 4th line does the bulk of our heavy lifting in the defensive zone, so Adams would be a solid candidate.

I would probably still do it if it was Asham coming our way, maybe like a 4th rounder coming our way so we can try and flip something for a 3rd liner like Chad Larose to offset the loss of Raymond.

Seto 01-16-2012 11:03 PM

Perry would be a good fit. It would take a lot to get him though.

I think Hemsky and Malkin would dominate together. They are both amazing skaters and great danglers. Having them both on the ice at the same time would make the defenseman's head spin.

ESPN Insider always irks me. It's not really a source, it just regurgitates other articles. In this case, they quoted Bruce Garrioch: http://www.ottawasun.com/2012/01/14/...d-about-parise

Quote:

The Penguins are a team worth watching as the trade deadline approaches. Whether C Sidney Crosby returns, GM Ray Shero has the assets to deal and money to spend to try to make sure Pittsburgh makes the playoffs. With C Jordan Staal and, hopefully, Crosby back before the playoffs, the Penguins need help on the wings. Top candidate: P.A. Parenteau of the Islanders would be a nice fit.
Just idle speculation from Garrioch.
