Trade Deadline Options

from Lyle Richardson of Spector's Hockey,

Seeing names like Ryan Miller, Thomas Vanek and Ryan Callahan in rumor headlines certainly stirs up excitement. However, the combination of high asking prices by their current clubs and the reduced salary cap could result in those players being too expensive to move by the deadline. That could force their respective clubs to significantly reduce what they’re seeking in return in order to move them by March 5.

What we will likely instead see is lesser lights – Edmonton’s Sam Gagner, Buffalo’s Matt Moulson, NY Islanders’ Andrew MacDonald, Calgary’s Mike Cammalleri – becoming the biggest names dealt by the trade deadline. Indeed, the movement of second- and third-tier talent has become more commonplace in recent years.
