The NHL trade deadline is rapidly approaching. Each team's general manager will field a call about one trade or another in the next week.
When they do, each one will have a player on their mind to deal away. In doing so, it does not make that player a villain, scapegoat or misfit necessarily.
However, there may be a contract that a general manager wants out of or a player the team can survive without but can recoup some value.
Allow me to present the player each team will be willing to part ways with.
