The Pittsburgh Penguins were swept by the New York Islanders from the Stanley Cup playoffs in the first round and don't seem to be too happy about it.
After being bounced for the second year in a row after consecutive Stanley Cups, it seems the Penguins are ready to start over again.
According to The Athletic's Rob Rossi, the Penguins are willing to move anybody not named Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin this summer.
Rossi adds that Jake Guentzel and Matt Murray could be labeled untouchable too.
However it's starting to sound like Phil Kessel has played his last game in Pittsburgh and was apparently very close to being traded to Arizona during the summer. It was one of the first questions Kessel was asked after the Penguins' elimination.
"That's a tough question to start, but I don't know at this point," the forward said, according to Rossi. "We'll see how it goes this summer. I've never worried about it. Obviously, two years in a row it didn't go the way we wanted it to. We'll see."
This is going to be a very interesting story to follow through the summer.
