The halfway point of the season has come and gone but aside from a few teams, there hasn’t been a whole lot of separation in the standings as several squads are still within striking distance of a Wild Card spot. That’s likely going to have an impact on the trade front as we get closer to the February 25th trade deadline as teams decide whether to add a piece or two to try to sneak in or try to sell and help their draft lottery odds.
With that in mind, it’s time to run another mailbag to take your questions on the upcoming trade deadline and other goings-on around the NHL. I’ll be answering your queries this coming weekend. You can submit your question on Twitter by including #PHRMailbag or leave a comment down below.
If you need to catch up on our last mailbag which ran in mid-December, you can do so by clicking here. Topics included who the Blackhawks may be looking to sell, trade targets for Carolina, the situation in St. Louis, and much more.
