Time to Load Up on NHL Trade Rumors

By January 23, 2012

Follow me on:

Bobby Ryan and Ryan Suter

The hockey calendar continues to unfold, with all eyes now turning to the NHL Trade Deadline.

(The trade deadline is often characterized as "Christmas for hockey fans," though the offerings under the tree can be very meager in some years.)

February 27 is the big day, the final chance for disappointed non-playoff teams to dump the excess baggage, and for optimistic playoff-bound teams to take it on.

So Tim Gleason, Hal Gill, Teemu Selanne, Drew Stafford, Sam Gagner, Marek Zidlicky, Ales Hemsky, Bobby Ryan, Josh Harding, Ryan Suter, and many others are advised to avoid major purchases and keep an overnight bag packed for the next few weeks.
