The Pittsburgh Penguins are one of many teams who seem intent on making some very serious roster changes this offseason. 

General manager Jim Rutherford has already started by shipping off his first round pick and acquiring Kasperi Kapanen from the Toronto Maple Leafs. 

We've also heard that he's guaranteed to move Matt Murray in the coming weeks while defenseman Kris Letang has told those around him and some teammates he's pretty sure he'll be traded

We can add another player to that list. 

Josh Yohe of The Athletic reports that Rutherford is trying to move Nick Bjugstad and has had plenty of conversations in the past couple of weeks. 

Bjugstad has one more year left at $4.1million and it seems to be the only reason he hasn't moved yet. 

The 28 year old dealt with injury issues this season and only played 13 games before eventually having surgery. He did not partake in the playoff bubble.
