Sabres and Ducks trade targets for the Penguins
Dan Kingerski of Pittsburgh Hockey Now: Buffalo Sabres AGM Jason Karmanos has scouted the Pittsburgh Penguins last couple of home games. The Anaheim Ducks have been scouting Penguins of late as well.
The Penguins could use an upgrade on the blue line. The Sabres and Ducks are rebuilding. The Sabres could have a couple of defensemen, and the Ducks could have a few available.
Colin Miller -RHD – The Sabres gave up a second and fifth in 2019 and may be worth more now. Carries a $3.85 million cap hit so the Penguins would need to move salary.
Josh Manson – RHD – Pending UFA at $4.1 million. Would cost more to acquire than Miller but would be worth it.
Players who could be on the move
Michael Traikos of the Toronto Sun: A look at some goaltenders, defensemen, veterans and players with term who could be available at the trade deadline.
