Penguins GM Ray Shero told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review if there's a trade that makes sense, he's willing to pull the trigger.
Before leaving for the three-day GM meetings that continue today in Naples, FL., Shero met with his coaches and scouting staff to put together a trade deadline game-plan.
"We met as a group and went through it again as to where we were, what we thought could help our team, what we thought about our chemistry and what we're trying to accomplish with this group," Shero told the paper.
"I've talked to plenty of teams, that's the job, and if it makes sense for us we'll look to do something."
According to the Tribune-Review, the Pens are looking at Chicago Blackhawks center Bryan Smolinski, who is also attracting interest from such teams as Montreal and Vancouver, and St. Louis Blues winger Bill Guerin, a hot commodity as the deadline nears.
The Penguins are also in the market for an upgrade on the blueline, and while the team is supposedly eyeing Los Angeles Kings rearguard Aaron Miller, the Tribune-Review claims the Pens have an interest in Canadiens defenseman Craig Rivet.
