The NHL trade deadline is almost upon us, and the current gridlock should give way to some big moves as it approaches.
Two factors are keeping doors closed: The upcoming expansion draft and the fact most teams are still kind of in the playoff race. But as teams start to separate themselves in the coming weeks, expect more moves to slip through.
For now, there are two or three surefire sellers on the market. The Colorado Avalanche are likely moving on from Matt Duchene or Gabriel Landeskog if someone meets their high price. Jarome Iginla is all but certainly going elsewhere. The Arizona Coyotes might move Shane Doan and other unrestricted free agents. The Dallas Stars might become players as well.
And, of course, at least two goalies are in play: Pittsburgh Penguins netminder Marc-Andre Fleury and Ben Bishop of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Keep up with all of the trades below, our list of every deal made leading up to and at the 2017 trade deadline. For the latest rumors and news, check in with SB Nation’s 2017 NHL trade deadline hub.
