The Penguins GM talk is expected to heat up this week and one surprising name came up as one of the candidates to fill the spot.

Peter Chiarelli Among Candidates

Peter Chiarelli's name has come up as one of the candidates for the Penguins' GM position.
Chiarelli is currently the Vice President of Hockey Operations for the St. Louis Blues. Chiarelli previously served as the GM for the Edmonton Oilers, selecting Connor McDavid with the first overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. Among several bad moves made by Chiarelli included trading Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson, and Jordan Eberle for Ryan Strome, who was then traded for Ryan Spooner. The controversial moves, as well as missing the 2018 and 2019 playoffs, ultimately led to Chiarelli's firing in January 2019.
Before his time in Edmonton, he served as Boston Bruins GM from 2006-2015. His notorious first move was trading goalie Andrew Raycroft to the Leafs in exchange for Tuukka Rask, a move that would prove monumental for the team. Chiarelli also traded Phil Kessel to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for two unprotected first round picks, which were used to draft Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton. The Ontario native won the Stanley Cup with the Bruins in 2011.
Several other names linked to the Pens' GM position include Kyle Dubas, Marc Bergevin, and Stan Bowman.
