From the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch:
Perhaps, it’s the calm before the storm.
The NHL trade deadline is set for Feb. 29 at 3 p.m. EST and while it will be tough to see a deal bigger than former Toronto Maple Leafs’ captain Dion Phaneuf being moved to the Senators in a blockbuster Tuesday, there’s still a sense among league executives it’ll be busy enough between now and the cutoff date.
The issue right now is the market is flooded with forwards and that needs to sort itself out because nobody is sure just who will move and who won’t. Naturally, the biggest question mark is Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos, but the betting money is he won’t be going anywhere.
After his name, people are eyeing the likes of Carolina’s Eric Staal, Winnipeg’s Andrew Ladd, Boston’s Loui Eriksson, Arizona’s Mikkel Boedker, Columbus’ Scott Hartnell, Kyle Okposo of the Islanders and Tampa holdout Jonathan Drouin.
“Right now, there’s a lot of forwards out there,” said a league executive.
Sooner or later, someone has to move to set the market.

Coyotes winger Mikkel Boedker damaged his spleen following a hit in Sunday's game against the Jets, requiring surgery that night to remove it, General Manager Don Maloney confirmed Tuesday.
The surgery was successful, and Boedker is expected to be fine, the team said. He remains in Winnipeg but could return to Arizona in the next two to three days, Maloney said.
A timeline for a return could be in the four-to-six week range, Maloney said.
"It's not like he can jump on the ice and return to Philadelphia (next Tuesday)," Maloney said. "These take anywhere from three to four to five to six weeks depending on how people recover from surgery."
