    Who do you think the Penguins will start the season off as the third line center? I have William Karlsson.

    Riley Sheahan can be had for a 2018 3rd or 4th rounder.

    He's not really who I want, but given DETs tight cap and PITs need for a #3C, something around him wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    I still really want Karlsson or Lindberg.

    Agree think the Pens can do totally better then Sheahan, Just sounds like Detroit might've to move him and with the Pens looking for a #3C and with JRs former ties with Detroit it wouldn't surprise me.

    Who knows? JR has said a couple of times that he's got a five potential targets and he's waiting until the right deal pops up. He's also said that if he wanted someone who is already available he'd have done it already, so if it ends up being an expected name I guess we can assume that he's settling.

    He's also said that he's fine going into the season with the roster as is and making an in-season trade, which leads me to believe that Cullen is leaning more toward coming back than retirement. Purely speculation on my part though, afaik there hasn't been any news on him one way or the other.

    My guess is that the Penguins go into next season with Cullen as their 3C and Rowney as their 4C, and they'll eventually make a trade for a 3C in like December.
