Calgary Flames winger Mike Cammalleri’s old agent is Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis, but I’d say the Pittsburgh Penguins or the New York Rangers will make the biggest push for him at the trade deadline, even if he’ll still have $1.25 million left on his $6 million contract. The Penguins need some offence outside of their top six.
With Letang out, defenseman Matt Niskanen has assumed a top-four role on defense, paired with free-agent returnee Rob Scuderi. Niskanen has produced three assists and a plus-4 rating.
Vokoun 37 yrs old also. Very possible #Pens will be in the market for a No. 1 goaltender this winter. They have a trade chip in Simon Despes

Re: the Letang situation in PIT: longer he goes unsigned – PIT has made a substantial offer – more reasonable it is to assume trade possible

Hearing that Letang camp informed Penguins earlier tonight that they were turning down an 8-year contract offer worth around $56 million…

If Norris Trophy-nominated defenceman Kris Letang can’t come to a long-term deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins, his preferred landing spot would be with the Toronto Maple Leafs, according to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Speaking to Jim Tatti and Mike Hogan on TSN Radio 1050’s Game Night on Wednesday, Rossi explained why such a scenario could take shape.
If the Pittsburgh Penguins reverse course and decide that they’ve had enough of Marc-Andre Fleury—though there’s no indication that’s going to happen—they have at least one potential trade partner.
The Minnesota Wild “expressed interest” in Fleury, who at the moment is a slightly above-average regular-season goalie that self-destructs in the postseason, according to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune.
The call on Dan Bylsma’s future behind the Penguins’ bench may not be Pittsburgh general manager Ray Shero’s to make.
Several individuals within the industry have told Slap Shots Penguins chairman Mario Lemieux, distressed by his team’s fourth straight failure to get out of the Eastern Conference after consecutive trips to the Finals in 2008 and 2009, the latter culminating with a Stanley Cup victory, may instruct Shero to dismiss the coach.
Ongoing speculation suggests Malkin could command $15 mil per year tax free in KHL. @bruce_arthur. Not saying he takes it, but it’s there.

Iginla to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for college prospects Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski as well as Pittsburgh’s 2013 first-round draft pick.
Surely, the Pittsburgh Penguins are done shopping.
It was certainly assumed by many that the acquisition of winger Brenden Morrow would rule the Pittsburgh Penguins out of the Jarome Iginla bidding.
Not so, a source told ESPN.com Monday.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly acquired defenceman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks, according to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com.
