What is the most realistic trade before the deadline for the pens? Who do we send and who do we get?

This is really hard to pinpoint. Despite what fake “insiders” will claim, the Penguins really haven’t been linked to anyone heavily. A few legit sources have linked them to Evander Kane and Jean Gabriel Pageau. Although, neither of those reports indicated “serious” interest. It’s really not possible to know who the Penguins are going to get. It’s just safe to assume that they’ll do something. They will certainly add a forward. The question is just how much of splash they will make. Jim Rutherford is a wildcard. He could go out and get a big name to play 3C. He could add a bottom-six winger and sit pat. He could do both. We will just have to wait and see how it all unfolds.
