With the GM market being flooded with talent at the moment, teams are starting to narrow down their searches. The Penguins have told four candidates they're out.
Penguins GM Race Narrows Down as Four Names Are Told They Are Out
The Pittsburgh Penguins have told four potential candidates they are out of the running as per Pierre LeBrun.
MacKinnon is currently the assistant GM of the New Jersey Devils. Tulsky is currently the assistant Gm of the Carolina Hurricanes. Bergevin is the former GM of the Montreal Canadiens. Chiarelli is the former GM of the Edmonton Oilers.
These are four extremely qualified candidates for the job but this could mean that the penguins have their hearts set on one candidate.
Common speculation is that this candidate is either former Leafs GM Kyle Dubas or former Flames GM Brad Treliving.
Those two are probably the hottest commodities on the market and will likely have a place to manage next season. Treliving has also been linked to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
