Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said in August that there's a "very, very good chance" he trades one of his team's netminders, and on Wednesday, reports shined a light on who that goalie may be.
Rutherford has very little interest in moving Tristan Jarry, sources told The Athletic's Josh Yohe. As a result, numerous people in the Penguins organization believe Matt Murray will be the odd man out, according to Yohe.
Murray backed the Penguins to two Stanley Cups but he struggled to the tune of a .899 save percentage and a 2.87 goals-against average in 2019-20. He started the first three contests in Pittsburgh's four-game qualifying-round loss against the Montreal Canadiens and sported a .914 save percentage.
Jarry was unproven prior to the 2019-20 campaign but he put together a .921 save percentage in 33 games this season. He stopped 20 of the 21 shots he faced in his lone playoff start in Game 4 against Montreal.
Murray, 26, and Jarry, 25, are both pending restricted free agents.
Yohe also reported that the Penguins are willing to move forwards Jared McCann and Nick Bjugstad.
