NHL Trade Deadline: Power Ranking the Top Oldies on the Market

Trade deadline day in the NHL always brings with it important opportunities.

The teams leading the standings obviously want to upgrade their rosters in time for the playoffs. Whether it be adding a piece to the top six, a checking forward for the long grind ahead or a depth defenseman in case of injury, there's always a deal to be made.

Bubble teams are also often looking to make a move. Making the playoffs means big dollars, and adding some firepower on deadline day could make the difference between eighth and ninth place.

Finally, there are those teams that have been wallowing near the bottom of the standings all season. Their playoff hopes were likely dashed before Christmas. Their fans are unhappy, their owners are unhappy, and most of the players are unhappy.

These teams are often looking to unload players with the hopes of rebuilding the roster for the future. More often than not, the players being moved are well north of 30. They don't fit in the plans, and their veteran experience is an asset that's highly coveted this time of year.

These are the 10 best oldies that could get moved next Monday.
