With the trade deadline looming, anticipation builds as teams gear up for potential deals. Following last season's 20% success rate in predicting trades, hopes are high for an even better outcome this year, with a target set at 35%.

Among those expected to be active are the Pittsburgh Penguins, under the helm of GM Kyle Dubas, aiming to rejuvenate the roster. Dubas's dissatisfaction with the team's performance hints at significant changes on the horizon.

One speculated move involves sending prolific goal scorer Guentzel to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for multiple assets, including Holloway, Foegele, Bourgault, and a first-round pick. While Guentzel's injury complicates matters, the potential trade reflects Dubas's strategic focus on the Penguins' future.

Meanwhile, the Oilers aim to bolster their roster for a Stanley Cup run, possibly involving top defensive prospect Broberg in trade talks. As Pittsburgh seeks to reshape its trajectory, trade season promises to be an intriguing period for NHL fans.
