We talked about it yesterday; the Penguins are 7 points away from a playoff spot. It's getting late for them as they sacrificed a lot to make one final push with the veterans in place.

Among these players, Jake Guentzel is a crucial part of the team's offense, but he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and negotiations haven't even started between the Pens and him.

Kyle Dubas will have a significant decision to make - whether to keep Guentzel and risk losing him or to trade him. If the decision is to keep him, it means Dubas truly believes the team can come back and qualify for the playoffs.

However, a stroke of bad luck occurred as Guentzel got injured on Wednesday night and will miss four weeks of action. Not only will it be very challenging to get back into the playoff picture without him, but it might also be difficult to trade him before the upcoming March 8th deadline.


In summary, Kyle Dubas is in a dilemma, and the Penguins' window could be closing right before our eyes.
