Penguins/CBJ Trade Talk

From Aaron Portzline at Puck-rakers in the Columbus Dispatch,

The Pittsburgh Penguins won’t be able to keep their Stanley Cup runner-up club together because of salary cap issues. It looks like the Blue Jackets are prepared to offer a helping hand.

The two clubs have had preliminary trade talks, the Dispatch has learned. The discussions have involved Pittsburgh trading the rights to one or two of their pending unrestricted free agents—players the Penguins have decided they can’t keep because of the salary cap—to the Blue Jackets for draft pick or player compensation.

It’s unclear who the players are, but Ryan Malone and Brooks Orpik seem like logical choices.
