Despite winning back to back Stanley Cup Championships, the Pittsburgh Penguins are being anything but complacent. Currently occupying the first wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference and one game out of the third playoff spot in the Metropolitan Division , the Penguins know that they’ll need to play their best hockey all season if they plan on turning their repeat into a threepeat.

“I could see Pittsburgh, which wanted Matt Duchene, keeping an eye on Max Pacioretty – if he becomes available.”
As Friedman mentions, this in no way indicates that Pacioretty is actually available in a trade. Still, the discussion has certainly been out there in recent days as the Canadiens continue to struggle. When talking about the potential for a full rebuild in Montreal, Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet mentioned that Pacioretty is “drowning in Montreal” prior to comparing his situation to that of Phil Kessel’s prior to being traded from Toronto coincidentally to the Penguins .
It’s an interesting prospect – the Canadiens moving on from their captain and the Penguins acquiring yet another  https://www.penguinspitfans.com/matt-hunwick-jersey-c-8.html top tier scoring talent to complement their current group. It’s also one that would make a lot of sense for both sides.

With another year beyond this season on his current deal that pays him a modest 4.5 million per season one of the best contracts in the entire NHL , many teams will likely be interested in a player like Pacioretty should he become available.

If the Penguins are going to trade to acquire a player like Pacioretty, a few things would have to go into making such a deal work. For starters, the Canadiens won’t be trading away their captain and best scorer for nothing. The Penguins will undoubtedly need to part with valuable prospects, picks or some combination of the two to peak the interest of the Habs https://www.penguinspitfans.com/kris-letang-jersey-c-7.html, and even then, salary comes into play.

Penguins Up Against the Cap

There are obviously other players that the Penguins will have to deal with following this season who will be in search of new deals. Still, if the opportunity exists for them to potentially add another star to their lineup https://www.penguinspitfans.com/olli-maatta-jersey-c-6.html, there’s no way they’ll pass it up if the price is right.
Making Sense of Things for the Canadiens
For the Canadiens, a deal involving Pacioretty would signal the beginning of a rebuild that fans have been on the fence about for years. At some point, a team simply has to make the decision to go all in and then suffer the consequences of a potential rebuild.

Pacioretty is just the tip of the iceberg too. One of many names that has been circulated around in recent days, Pacioretty joins the likes of Carey Price Brian Dumoulin Jersey, Shea Weber and others who could find themselves on the outs if other teams express interest. The Canadiens haven’t yet fully committed to a rebuild or a Stanley Cup one way or the other , but a decision will need to be made sooner than later. When that decision is made, the Penguins will be waiting.
