    Penguins trade Tyler Kennedy to the San Jose Sharks for a 2nd round pick

    Trade: Sharks acquire Kennedy from Penguins

    The Penguins have found a way into the second-round of the draft.

    Pittsburgh has dealt forward Tyler Kennedy to the San Jose Sharks for their second-round pick in this year’s draft. Kennedy heads to the Sharks as a restricted free agent in need of a new contract. He’s coming off a two-year contract that paid him $2 million per year.

    The Penguins headed into this year’s draft without a first or second-round pick. Now they’ve got the 50th overall selection today.

    For what it’s worth, Sharks GM Doug Wilson likes Kennedy’s game.

    “Tyler is a highly-competitive forward who plays with speed and has a history of scoring big goals,” said Wilson. “He has played in a lot of playoff games over the last past five seasons, won a Stanley Cup and we think he fits in perfectly with our group and how we want to play the game.”

    Kennedy should give the Sharks a bit better depth up front, something they lacked last season.

    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204

    I was a big fan of TK, sad to see him go, but to get a 2nd round pick for a guy who is a RFA and fell off the depth chart to being a healthy scratch in the playoffs is a good deal.
