<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Quillanrocks</b></div><div>Did you ask Crosby about the first trade??!! lol Guentzel is a heck of a player but I'm just not sure Seattle would make this move. (?) Assuming firstly that he doesn't put Seattle on his 12 team no-trade list, the bigger question is would he want to sign an extension and what would that look like. (?) Rutta has next to zero value to the Kraken over their current RD, especially at that cap hit for 2 more seasons, and the prospect does little for Seattle either, I imagine. Of course, in Pittsburgh's perspective, that is not nearly enough return for a top-line winger, especially with retention, so I can't see Dubas doing it either.</div></div>
I 100% doubt Sid would allow Guentzel to be dealt, nor do I think Dubas wants to which I said in the description. I’m just humoring the idea because I’ve seen some threads of other teams. The hard part about finding a trade partner that works for both teams is Pittsburgh will want usable young roster players now, as opposed to a top prospect for later. Seattle is a fit for that vs some other teams that an overall Guentzel trade makes sense for (Carolina or Dallas).
