Elias Pettersson Posted January 17, 2022 Share Posted January 17, 2022 In looking at the standings in the East, it looks like most if not all of the playoff teams are set. Detroit, Columbus, Philadelphia, New Jersey, NY Islanders, Buffalo, Ottawa and Montreal all look to be out of the race. They will be Sellers in my opinion. Of course we don't know yet if we will be Buyers or not. I would say within the next 4 weeks JR will be making a decision on whether we are buying or selling. In the event that we are Buyers, who do you think JR would target amongst these teams? I'm excluding the West right now as it's still a tight race for at least 2 spots, maybe 3 and it's harder to trade within the conference, so I'm only looking at the East teams for now. Here is a list of players that will most likely be available at the trade deadline: Claude Giroux Rasmus Ristolainen Tomas Tatar Damon Severson Max Domi Cal Clutterbuck Scott Mayfield Zdeno Chara Kyle Okposo Cody Eakin Colin Miller Vladislav Namestnikov Nick Leddy Danny DeKeyser Marc Staal Troy Stecher Ben Chiarot Brett Kulak Joel Edmundson Tyler Toffoli Chris Tierney Nicholas Paul Zachary Sanford Nick Holden That's a pretty good list. Most are gonna be UFA's. IF the Canucks were to be Buyers at the deadline who would you target and who would help us the most? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
