The trade deadline is now less than two weeks away which means that activity levels around the league are bound to pick up in the coming days. With the standings continuing to be as tight as they are, it’s going to certainly be interesting to see how that affects the market. Will teams wait until the last minute to see where they are or will they try to make an earlier move in the hopes that an extra few games from a key acquisition will make the difference?
With that in mind, it’s time to run another mailbag to take your questions on the upcoming trade deadline and other topics from 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.
You can catch up on our last mailbag set by clicking here and here where the topics included reshaping the Oilers, trade options for Detroit, what Calgary should be looking to add by the deadline, the goalie situation in St. Louis, whether Vancouver will buy or sell, and much more.
