The Hurricanes recently come out and said that everyone on the team except Sebastian Aho is available for trade. The Penguins can certainly benefit by looking into trading for one of their defenseman.
Both Jaccob Slavin and Justin Faulk could be solid additions in a 2018-2019 Penguins team. Clearly the issue with the team this year was the defense. The addition of Derrick Brassard really helped, but the subtraction of Ian Cole hurt. Cole was their best true defensive player. Justin Faulk is a good two-way defenseman who would work well on the Penguins top defensive pair with Letang or even on the second pairing with Schultz. Faulk makes just over four million dollars a year and trading Sheary may help .Slavin is a good young defenseman in which it will cost to get home but his salary is capped at three quarters of a million dollars a year, helping the Penguins try to stay under their cap limit.
