Top-Five Likely NHL Trade Candidates in the Eastern Conference

  1. Anderson could be a candidate for a trade at the deadline IF a team headed for the playoffs runs into a goalie injury simply because that would increase his value. Otherwise, since they can’t expect much for a 38 y/o headed for UFA status, they’ll likely keep him to the end of the season. Not much point in a 6th or 7th round pick.

    • agreed George , unless Anderson requests a trade for a chance at playing on a playoff team for one last kick at the can. Have to think this is his last year in the league.

      • The guy on the Sens I’d bet on being traded at the deadline is Boedker – again only IF he’s having a decent season, and IF some playoff-bound team is looking for depth at F. He, too, is a UFA at season’s end and although he carries a hefty $4 mil cap hit, most of that will have been paid by February. One way or another he won’t be back in Ottawa next season.
