Pittsburgh Penguins GM Kyle Dubas will look to trade a veteran forwards in order to make cap space to sign a big name player.

Lars Eller is a player that comes to mind, as word around the league is that the Penguins have been actively shopping him on the trading block.
Teams are asking the Pittsburgh Penguins about Lars Eller

William DePaoli: A few teams inquired about Pittsburgh Penguins center Lars Eller. If the Penguins were to trade Eller, a source said it would tied to another move. The Penguins are looking for another top-nine forward.

Eller put up 15 goals and 16 assists in all 82 games he suited up for the Penguins last season. Should Dubas decide to move him out, he will no doubt need someone reliable that he can count on to play in the majority of games, if not all games, just like Eller was able to do.
The Penguins came close to signing Stanley Cup champion Vladimir Tarasenko, but he ultimately chose to sign in Detroit. Dubas will need to shift his attention elsewhere. Another player that comes to mind is Rangers forward Kaapo Kakko.
"I'm pretty sure they're dangling Kaapo Kakko and will pursue deals to possibly move him this summer. I think they're not thrilled with the offers that they've gotten so far which is why he's still on the roster." #NYR

Things are heating up in Pittsburgh. It's no secret that Sidney Crosby's career is nearing the end, and he will desperately want to have another crack at the Stanley Cup. Dubas will need to be hard at work this summer to ensure that happens.
