NHL Trade rumors: could the Penguins and Hurricanes be partners in the near future?

When it comes to the National Hockey League and excelling as a General Manager, it feels like the best thing you can do to give yourself the best chances — take advantage when a team is acting dumb and/or desperate. The Carolina Hurricanes may very well be doing both of these things. If what Bob McKenzie said here is both accurate and true, it could make for a wild summer, and the Penguins should undoubtedly throw their hat in the ring and see what kind of deals they could make. Tom Dundon has already shown that he is a very hands-on owner and his GM in place, Don Waddell, was responsible for the Atlanta Thrashers teardown of a team that through its best years featured Marian Hossa, Dany Heatley, and Ilya Kovalchuk at different times.
