Plenty of opinions about where Penguins’ Phil Kessel could land in trade
The Phil Kessel trade watch is one of the biggest topics in hockey right now. And the opinions are flying.
Dave Poulin said on TSN, “He’s an acquired taste that has run its course in Pittsburgh.”
On the same panel, Craig Button made it sound like the team is scapegoating the veteran winger.
“I want Phil Kessel,” Button said. “Take advantage of the problems that Pittsburgh has with the salary cap and get this guy.”
Former Penguins Colby Armstrong and Mike Rupp have shared some opinions, too, on 105.9 the X and the NHL Network.
You can hear what they all had to say in our Thursday podcast.
Also, take a listen to what Jeremy Roenick dropped about the Kessel trade prospects while on a radio appearance in Buffalo.
There seems to be a real push and pull between Kessel and the Penguins about where he may be willing to go, and how it would be possible to keep him if Jim Rutherford can’t find a suitable trade partner that No. 81 will approve.
Our Jonathan Bombulie recapped the interview, as well.
