This is just a rumor, but we are in a sort of calm before the storm and this one really caught my eye:

To Edmonton: Kris Letang
To PIttsburgh: 7th overall pick, Jeff Petry, and Magnus Pääjärvi

MP is a RFA — needs a new K.
Petry is their #4 d-man (and EDM’s D sucks). He has 1 year left at $1.75 and then will also be a RFA.

At #7, the Pens are prob looking at:
D – Nurse or Zadorov or Ristolainen (one may be gone, but prob not 2), Pulock
F – Nichuskin (maybe), Domi, Horvat, Wennberg, Shinkaruk, Mantha, Zykov

If this deal were to happen which side would you prefer (as a GM)?

What about fantasy implications?
