This year, it appears many more prominent players are being shopped.
Various reports indicate the long list of forwards available includes Thomas Vanek (Buffalo), Paul Stastny (Colorado), Dave Bolland (Chicago); Sam Gagner, Shawn Horcoff and Ales Hemsky (Edmonton), Mike Cammalleri (Calgary), David Perron (St. Louis) and Erik Cole (Dallas).
Typically, deals like this come down on the draft floor or just before the draft because the Wild is looking for either a first-round pick in the Clutterbuck deal (teams are hesitant to give up firsts right now because this draft is so deep) or a second so it could potentially use two seconds to try to move into the first round.
And often times when picks are involved, the teams involved want to make certain first the player they want to take is still sitting there. For instance, in 2006 when the Wild acquired Pavol Demitra for a first and Patrick O’Sullivan, the L.A. Kings didn’t agree to the deal until they were certain Trevor Lewis would still be there.
Bruins are really active right now. Tyler Seguin is one of the players that could be traded. Lightning is one of many teams in the mix.
