Surely, the Pittsburgh Penguins are done shopping.

Maybe not.

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.

Penguins continue to improve their team by making another trade

The Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly acquired defenceman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks, according to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com.

Morrow traded to the Penguins

The Penguins and Dallas Stars have a trade in place that would see veteran forward Brenden Morrow headed to Pittsburgh in exchange for a package that would include defenceman Joe Morrow, according to sources.
