There is some serious concern in the organization that the Penguins may lose a needed depth player (or players) through waivers.
Keys players such as defensemen Nate Guenin, Deryk Engelland, Chris Lee and forwards, Chris Conner, Paul Bissonnette, Wyatt Smith, and Tim Wallace will all be exposed to the waiver wire.
The only players that don’t have to clear waivers are forwards Dustin Jeffrey, Eric Tangradi, Luca Caputi, Joe Vitale, Nick Johnson and defensemen Robert Bortuzzo, Jonathan D’Aversa, and Ben Lovejoy.
This has the Penguins shopping
Eric Godard and Pascal Dupuis. The Penguins have yet to receive any offers for both players. Moving Dupuis would open the door for Nick Johnson to make the team and the same for Ryan Bayda.
But, Who is really going to take on Dupuis contract?
Pittsburgh has received a few inquiries on Godard but Pittsburgh wants to see how things shake out first.
Right now it looks like, he’s going nowhere.
