 The Pittsburgh Penguins have a tough offseason upcoming because they 6 major UFAs and 2 RFAs to resign and they only have about $29 million to do so. To make things tougher for the Penguins they don't have any of players in the system that can replace those players. Here is what I would do if I were GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Before the 2022 Draft, a few trades are made

Pittsburgh Penguins trade Evgeni Malkin and Kasperi Kapanen to the Minnesota Wild for Kevin Fiala, Fredrick Gaudreau, 1st round pick '22.

This is a win-win trade for both teams; Minnesota gets a top-line center in Evgeni Malkin to pair with Kirill Kaprizov, as well as Kasperi Kapanen to replace Kevin Fiala, while the Penguins get Kevin Fiala, a top 6 winger, Fredrick Gaudreau, an underrated center, and a 1st round pick.

The Penguins also trade Kris Letang to the Montreal Canadiens for Kaiden Guhle, Ryan Poehling, Joshua Roy, 2nd round pick '22, 1st round pick '23.

Montreal gets Kris Letang to be their top pair defenseman, which would be a huge blow for Pittsburgh but at the same time they did get some nice pieces in Ryan Poehling, top prospects Kaiden Guhle and Joshua Roy, as well as a 1st and 2nd round pick.

Jason Zucker, Brian Dumoulin are traded to the Vancouver Canucks for Tanner Pearson, 3rd round pick '22.

This is mostly a cap dump for the Penguins, which saves the Penguins 6.35 million in cap space. In addition, this trade addresses the positional needs of both teams, the Penguins need goal-scoring, while the Canucks need better defense.

At the 2022 Draft, the Pittsburgh Penguins trade picks 21, and 33 to the Buffalo Sabres for picks 16, and 41.

2022 Draft

16-Jimmy Snuggerud

27-Rugter McGroarty 

41-Seamus Casey

79-Topi Ronni

117-Marcel Marcel

149-Elmeri Laakso

181-Elias Pettersson

The Penguins improved their dreadful prospect pool a bit with the additions of three former USNTDP players: Jimmy Snuggerud, Rugter McGroarty, and Seamus Casey. They also added Topi Ronni and Marcel Marcel, who are big forwards, who could play a depth role on the team down the road, and two defensemen in Elmeri Laakso and Elias Pettersson.

Pittsburgh Penguins re-sign the following players:

Kevin Fiala-8yrs/7.5M per

Bryan Rust-5yrs/6M per

Danton Heinen-1yr/1.1M

Louis Domingue-1yr/750k

All Non-Roster RFAs are re-signed

Pittsburgh Penguins sign the following players in Free Agency:

John Klingberg-6yrs/6.5M Per

Andrew Copp-6yrs/5M per

This is how the lineup looks like next season

2022-23 Pittsburgh Penguins










The Pittsburgh Penguins can still remain a competitive team in the Eastern Conference with the moves they made here, and didn't have to overpay 35 year old veterans.

C Sean Couturier -After missing 2+ years, Sean Couturier is back and it seems like he hasn't missed a beat. Believe it or not, Couturier has been one of the top centers in the league so far with his all-around play, putting up 2 goals, 3 assists, 2 PPP, 63 FW, 24 SOG, and 1 SHP. Despite showing that he is still an elite center, Couturier is only owned in 20% of fantasy leagues. Pick him up now, while you still can. Ryan Johansen - Serves as the Avalanche's 2nd line center and plays on their all-world 1st pp unit. Despite not being the player he used to be, Johansen is still a valuable fantasy asset because of the players he plays with. Johansen has 4 goals and 4 PPPs along with 63 FW so far this season. He is owned in 29% of fantasy leagues. Sean Monahan - Someone must have gotten a time machine and put Sean Monahan in it because he is playing like he was back when he was in his prime. Monahan has been arguably the best player on Montreal this year, with 3 goals, 6 points, 2 PP


Here are some players you should pickup in Fantasy Hockey, sorted by position. Center Colton Sissons Colton Sissons is one of the best 4th line centers in the league, but in fantasy hockey, he could be even more valuable than he actually is in real life because of what he provides in the peripheral categories. So far this season Sissions has 5 goals, 1 PPP, 1 SHP, 12 PIM, 20 SOG, 89 FW, 15 hits, and 9 blocks. This is a terrific stat line and although you can't count on Sissons scoring a ton, he will fill out the FW, Hits, and blocks usually. Sissons is owned in 6% of fantasy leagues, snag him up while you can. Nick Bjugstad Nick Bjugstad is having an excellent year so far with the Arizona Coyotes, in fact he has played so well that he earned himself a promotion to play on the 2nd line along with Mattias Maccelli and Lawson Crouse. Bjugstad also gets time on Arizona's 2nd PP unit and 2nd PK unit. Bjugstad may not be a name who stands out to casuals, but his fantasy stat line is

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Goalies to Pickup

 Here are some goalies to pickup now in Fantasy Hockey: Semyon Varlamov Semyon Varlamov has been solid in net for the New York Islanders in the last month of the season; he has a 2-2 record with a 2.35 GAA, .927 SV%, and 153 Saves during that timespan. Even though Varlamov will only get a few starts with Ilya Sorokin there, he has proven to be a reliable backup when called upon. Varlamov is owned in 41% of Fantasy leagues, you should take a flyer on him if you need a goalie with a good GAA and SV%. Antti Raanta Antti Raanta has played great for the Carolina Hurricanes in the last month of the season; he has a 3-0 record with a 1.49 GAA and .946 SV% during that timespan. With Fredrik Andersen back, Raanta will be back in the backup role, but he has thrived in this role and should continue to do so. Definitely, pickup Raanta if you have Fredrik Andersen because he doesn't start every game. Philipp Grubauer Philipp Grubauer has been playing a lot better for the Seattle Kraken in the l
