Pittsburgh Penguins reveal what they'd be willing to offer for a Mike Hoffman

Despite the Canadiens' recent successes, the team was in such a deep hole that the organization will remain in the "sellers" category for the trade deadline, and veterans will be traded.

We know that the Habs want room on their payroll to sign a star player this summer, and that Kent Hughes as well as Jeff Gorton will not be afraid to trade veterans with years remaining on their contracts (like Tyler Toffoli) in addition to those with expiring contracts.

Among the teams interested, there is one that comes up often: the Pittsburgh Penguins, the information was confirmed by Pittsburgh journalist Josh Yohe.

Yohe just added:

«Penguins GM Ron Hextall has made it very clear that he won't trade his first-round pick. On the other hand, the Penguins would be ready to trade defenseman Michael Matheson, if the return is good, and there is also Pierre-Olivier Joseph who is at risk of being traded." - Josh Yohe

We therefore understand that these are elements that may be offered to the Canadians in possible negotiations involving Hoffman, or another player like Artturi Lehkonen.

Let's focus on Hoffman, would you like to receive Matheson or Joseph in exchange? Would a Hoffman vs P-O Joseph trade be possible?

I guess that picks will be involved too if it ever happens, but it will be interesting to watch. For sure, we now know what items are available in Pittsburgh.

Also, notably, Maxim Guérin has identified that the Pittsburgh Penguins are interested in acquiring Hoffman.
