Laraque to be dealt very soon?

According to TSN & Spector’s Hockey, the Phoenix Coyotes management told Georges Laraque he will not play another game for them this season but haven’t asked him yet to lift his no trade clause. The Pittsburgh Penguins are rumored to be very interested in Laraque.
They also need a stay at home defensmen and if I were Ray Shero, I’d pick up Nolan Baumgartner who’s just been put on waivers or I would trade for Craig Rivet of the Habs.
