Penguins trade rumors tyler toffoli

Welcome to your daily dose of hockey headlines, NHL trade rumors, and whatever else we find interesting. The Pittsburgh Penguins were outclassed against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night. The Calgary Flames trade deadline needs may have changed with the injury to Mark Giordano. There’s growing chatter in the NHL trade rumors that Philadelphia is getting serious about acquiring Tyler Toffoli, and Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson could be on the move.

First, the Penguins report card from Thursday night. For you those of you who love hockey, the tactical analysis is the highlight of the story (PHN+)

Also, the Penguins think defenseman John Marino is going to be OK after a scary moment on Thursday night (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)

Philly wants Tyler Toffoli. For several days in a row, there has been a story about the Philadelphia Flyers acquiring Toffoli. Analyzing the Philadelphia case (NBC Sports Philadelphia)

Sources say the Boston Bruins are NOT trading Torey Krug (Boston Hockey Now)

The Ottawa Senators are likely to trade goalie Craig Anderson. Interestingly, one of the reasons Ottawa could let him go is 2016 Penguins second-round pick Filip Gustavsson, who was named the AHL goalie of the month for January. (Sportsnet)

The Penguins sent Gustavsson to Ottawa as part of the Derrick Brassard deal, but I shan’t bring up bad memories.

More NHL Trade Rumors: My little hockey chat circle has wanted Sam Bennett for a couple of years. The Calgary Flames may make him available as they attempt to deal with the injury to Giordano, who had a lower-body MRI (hamstring) this week. (TSN)

Bennett has often been saddled with fourth-line duty in Calgary. The pesky forward with hands may need a change of scenery.

Daren Dreger also wondered aloud about Jack Eichel’s future in Buffalo. Things are getting ugly in Buffalo (OK, things are always ugly up there), and there is growing concern Eichel might ask to be traded. Via Spector’s Hockey, (Kukla’s Korner)

On Tuesday, the NHL and NHLPA will resume talks on the next CBA (NHL.com)

The Pens were not outclassed they were out-goalied.They out shot Tampa and when last i looked they won the face off battle they were equal in blocks and had fewer giveaways.Murray made some nice saves but he let in a couple of stinkers as usual.There is no way he should have given up the first goal or the short side goal plus he was down and out several times.Sully should be ashamed of himself for playing the great Chad Ruhwedel out of position when he has a better option in Riikola who has better numbers that Chad.Justin Schultz has sucked… Read more »

Id like to see JJ/Riikola for Bennett and schultz go for a second or for a FW they like, IK teams like WPG and TOR are looking for defense so maybe a FW that is top 6 but these teams can’t afford to keep or possibly a Hoffman-Schultz swap but idk how i feel about Hoffman cause idk if he would work with Sid but probably would with Geno. Other teams that need defense are CAR, VGK, VAN, ARI. Could also be a fitto a weak team that has a player like Athenaseau that could go. Gally in that case… Read more »

Zucker would be great cause he can play on the top 3 lines and if Jake comes back in the playoffs then he goes with Crosby and Zucker could knock Simon out of the lineup and be on the third line and make a third line that would be top 6 worthy.
Jake-Sid-McCann/Possible player from Schultz
Kahun-Malkin-Rust
Zucker-Bennett-Horny
Tanev-Bluger-Simon/ZAR

The Lightning have more talent than the Pens. It’s that simple. Whether they have the leadership and chemistry remains to be seen. If the answers are yes and yes, they’re the Stanley Cup winners.

Give me Bennett for JJ or Riikola cause he has talent and could at least be third line center but still would need a top six guy I still thin Schultz and Gally should go and maybe Bjuds

Bennet would be an interesting add. I cant remember seeing another goalie flop on his belly as much as Murray. I know they are working on him to stand tall but I ve seen so many goals against him when is is laying on his belly. Its a bit strange.

Tge Pens beed badly a top 6 winger to play with Sid. Guentzel injury hurts this teams chances for the stanley cup. But with no Dummo and no Marino they are in deep trouble. Cant beleive they can get both a Dman n winger before trade deadline. And might not have all the assets to complete a good trade. Desmith…Bjugstad…Chucky. of those 3. DeSmith could have more value. Ouch. Not that much either. A.Chiasson is intriguing. V. Namestnikov Those are bottom 6 forwards. Low cost. Forbort Dman LA Manson Ana Martinez LA Lots of teams are looking for D’s with… Read more »
