I think it's easy to decipher the meaning of these trades. Either Leighton becomes the backup to Murray, which enables Jarry to either be traded or get full work in the AHL. I don't like to count chickens before they hatch with the longevity of Murray's career, but it's obvious to me that Jarry is likely the biggest trade piece from the prospect pool that the Penguins are likely willing to give up. I think it's notable the Penguins got a 4th for a 6th in this one. Or, Leighton is just used as a third or fourth goalie to go to on the team, that trade up is worth Archibald. Unfortunately, Archibald was never given much of a shot to outperform the 8 other players he could have this season. I'm no Archi fan boy either. Everyone else has just been that bad.

I see Oleksiak as everything Reaves should have been. He's a low-risk player given up for minuscule assets who can be benched if he doesn't perform. If you guys PRAISE Reaves and circle jerk all over his "toughness", you should have the same reaction to this trade. Surprisingly, I don't have a problem with it. The Penguins do well with helping defensemen move along in their careers, he can help clear the net, and he can skate well. This is likely a precursor for a Cole trade. If it's not and he struggles, he can be sat behind Ruhwedel. The same can't be said for a guy like Reaves,who was such a "statement" trade for JR that he'll never be benched. The forward position is the identity of this team. JR shit on it with that move.


I don't think you'll see Leighton at the NHL level- he's not at that level anymore. Jarry has earned his NHL spot. I think this is merely to shore up the goaltending in the farm system. Because what happens if MM gets hurt again? You've got Desmith as the NHL backup, which is playing with fire. As many here know, I was a HUGE Archi fan. I think he can be a 3rd line winger and most certainly a better option than Kuhn. Just irritated they gave up on him.

Oleksiak...interesting acquisition. I think this means Cole is as good as gone. I also kinda wonder if the Reaves experiment is over because they are both guys who could be considered a deterrent . Remember that JR isn't afraid to correct his mistake (see Perron) in season

Note that I don't know much about Oleksiak outside of him being a big dude

I agree, like I said, he'd just be a body to shuffle.

They need to do more.

And I don't think Jarry will be traded. Unless it's part of an absolutely HUGE trade, like Duchene

I think Ottawa is a terrible fit for him...they're a trapping team and he's an offensive dynamo .
