Default Penguins Acquire Marcel Goc From Florida

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) Today was the trade deadline in the NHL and the Pittsburgh Penguins did not make the big splash that had been rumored for a few days.

However, they did add a forward that will help to shore up an injury-depleted group of forwards.

According to multiple reports, the Penguins acquired center Marcel Goc from the Florida Panthers for a fifth-round pick this year and a third-round pick in 2015.

In 62 games this season, Goc has tallied 11 goals and 12 assists. In 550 career games, Goc has 72 goals and 105 assists.

Goc, a first round pick of the San Jose Sharks in 2001, figures to help fill out the bottom two lines.

While the bottom six forwards have been an issue all year, the Penguins still need to figure out who is going to play alongside Chris Kunitz and Sidney Crosby.

While the Penguins were not able to land Ryan Kesler or other high-priced guys such as Matt Moulson or Thomas Vanek, I think Goc will help to better solidify the forwards as a whole.

Its also worth noting that Beau Bennett will hopefully be returning to the lineup in a couple of weeks.

At that point, Bennett may get a shot on the top line. Should that happen, it would be his best opportunity to date to prove hes a top six player on this roster.

Do these moves make the Penguins outright Stanley Cup contenders? Perhaps not, but they did not sacrifice the future to land a rental player this year.

I would look ahead to the summer with money coming off the books and a rising salary cap for where the Penguins make their big move.
