3. Pittsburgh Penguins
Seeing Jonathan Toews on the Pittsburgh Penguins would surely be something.
There were only a few centers better than the aforementioned Patrice Bergeron back in the early 2010s.
Of course, we’re talking about Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins. They both had amazing seasons last year but the team missed the playoffs for the first time since Crosby’s rookie year.
Now, they have made some big moves this off-season that they hope to get them back into the postseason mix.
Bringing in someone like Toews for their third line would create a similar depth to that in Edmonton.
The Penguins are a winning organization but that isn’t going to last for longer than Crosby and Malkin’s productive years.
They might be all in on trying to get one more Stanley Cup out of them before their careers are over. Of course, a one/two-year deal for Toews could be the key.
A solid two-way forward with tons of experience like Toews doesn’t come around very often. You’d think that the Penguins at least consider it.
