Picture of Noah Hanifin. Will the Calgary Flames trade him to the Pittsburgh Penguins?
The latest NHL trade rumors for the Pittsburgh Penguins have the team interested in Calgary Flames defenseman Noah Hanifin.

The Erik Karlsson trade rumors appear to be winding down and it is looking like he will be staying in San Jose rather than be traded to Carolina, Toronto, or Pittsburgh.

Frank Seravalli was on Sportsnet 590 and stated that the San Jose Sharks are willing to eat 20% of his contract and nothing more. The teams mentioned above are not able to take on a player with a $9.5 million salary cap hit after the 20% reduction.

This is now leading to NHL trade rumors that the Pittsburgh Penguins will target Calgary Flames defenseman Noah Hanifin.

Will Noah Hanifin be traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins?

The Pittsburgh Penguins are hoping to have one more shot at the Stanley Cup rather than looking at a rebuild and new GM Kyle Dubas wants to make his mark with a big trade.

For salaries to work for both teams, the Penguins would receive Noah Hanifin, and going to the Calgary Flames would be center Mikael Granlund, prospect Owen Pickering and the Penguins 2024 first-round pick.

It will be interesting to see what the Penguins do this off-season. It is obvious GM Dubas wants to land a big fish defenseman but with the NHL’s hard salary cap, he may be stuck with the team he inherited.

What are Pittsburgh Penguins fans saying about a Noah Hanifin trade?

What is Pittsburgh doing? They can’t keep giving away assets in the hopes of being a Stanley Cup contender. Their time is over. Build for the future.

Noah Hanifin will be a NHL trade deadline move by the Calgary Flames.

With most NHL trades completed this offseason and free agent frenzy completed, most teams are tapped out on salary cap space. Though the mentioned trade works as mentioned above, Hanifin is not getting traded anytime soon.
