Today, our friend Josh Yohe of the Athletic spoke with Pens GM Jim Rutherford about the upcoming trade deadline.
If Rutherford can find a rental like Chris Kreider and it takes a first round pick to get it done, I'm fine with it.
If it's a a player with term on his deal like Jason Zucker or Brandon Sutter and it takes a first round pick to get it done, I'm fine with it.
The Penguins absolutely can win the Stanley Cup this year. The GM loves this team and thinks they've got a shot. Screw the future. The time is now.
