The Trade Deadline Expires In Less Than Two Weeks

from Dan Rosen of NHL.com,

The 2018 NHL Trade Deadline is fast approaching, which means the speculation has started, the rumors are flying, the lists of which scouts are at which games are being tweeted out by reporters, and the buyers and sellers are emerging.

Though the hockey world will likely have to wait to find out what's going to happen next for New York Islanders captain John Tavares, Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson and Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson -- all three of whom are unlikely to be traded before the deadline, which is at 3 p.m. ET on Feb. 26 -- there are many players who could be changing teams soon.
