DobberHockey’s Trade Deadline Coverage

 

In the final part of the new series, we'll take a look at players who could find themselves on a new team come Feb. 27th. TSN has pretty good coverage of the Western Conference teams, but it probably lacks a bit of fantasy analysis, so I'll borrow some of their thoughts, but add that extra dimension to gives you a clearer picture.

 

Nashville

With roughly six weeks left till the end of the regular season, the Preds are nine points clear of a playoff spot. They've never really been big buyers or sellers at the deadline, so look for them to make a minor tweak or two come Feb 27th. Expect them to be small buyers.

 

Possible Movers

Now just because they've never made a huge splash at the deadline doesn't mean that they won't buck the trend. If they really wanted to make a big splash, they could certainly shock the fantasy hockey world if they decided to move highly-coveted blue-liner Ryan Suter. I wrote a couple of lengthy posts on the forum here and here, so if you have a few minutes definitely take a gander.
