Darren Dreger- tsn.ca

The prospect of the Olympic roster freeze at midnight February 12th is expected to spark a trade or two before then; however multiple NHL sources describe the current state of trade discussions as ‘very quiet.’ That said the potential list of players available is growing on a daily basis. Here are the top 10 players expected to be dealt on, or before the March 3rd NHL trade deadline.

1) Ilya Kovalchuk

2) Ray Whitney

3) Peter Mueller

4) Matt Stajan

5) Alexei Ponikarovsky

6) Matt Cullen

7) Lubomir Visnovsky

8) Sheldon Souray

9) Ethan Moreau

10) Marty Turco

There appears to be more buyers than sellers as we creep closer to the deadline, however that could change over the next few weeks as teams get a final reading on their post-season chances.
