Massive offseason in Pittsburgh

After another disappointing playoffs for the penguins the team decided it was time to under go some massive changes. First the team traded the 3rd overall pick (from VAN) and their own 1st round pick which was 22nd overall to the Chicago Blackhawks for the 1st overall pick. The team drafted Sergei kugryshev first overall. The team believes that he will be the teams replacement for Marian Gaborik and he could see ice time with the club during the 2017-2018 season. The team then traded RFA joe morrow and the often injured Brandon sutter to he Phoenix coyotes for Oliver ekman larsson. The team then traded Brian dumoulin to the Anaheim ducks for Brandon pirri. The team has one more question to answer and that is the goaltending situation. Fleury appeared to struggle at times and engstrand wasn't much better. This lead to engstrand's departure in the offseason and Nikita serebryakov handed the backup job although he will test fleury for the #1 job. Serebryakov was a stud in his 15 game stint with the club going 10-4 with a 1.85 GAA and a .938sv%.
