Ryan Suter Rumors: Penguins Could Deal Paul Martin, If Team Lands Prized Free Agent

The Pittsburgh Penguins are still chasing two of the biggest NHL free agents on the market this summer, Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. They are believed to be one of a handful of teams with offers out to both players. If the Penguins acquire Suter, a defenseman, they could deal Paul Martin to Nashville, according to a Tuesday-afternoon report from Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Martin's name has been mentioned previously in trade rumors, though reports last week said the Penguins were not shopping him. The cost of signing Suter, should it happen, might give the team renewed motivation to deal Martin and his $5 million salary.

First, Pittsburgh would have to acquire Suter. There was one unconfirmed report from Brian Lawton early Wednesday morning that Suter had picked the Minnesota Wild.
