Rick Nash has been traded.
These are the type of moves that fans are looking forward to hearing on deadline day. They might not happen, but the rumors that lead to those types of moves that make the trade deadline so big.
However, the deals that go down are likely to be a lot smaller. Look at the players that have been moved as of this point: Dominic Moore, Hal Gill, Nicklas Grossman, Kyle Quincey, Steve Downie, Antione Vermette. Jeff Carter was moved last night, and he might be the biggest name moved this week.
It will be the lesser known players that will be the currency of the trade deadline. Players like Vermette, who was going to be listed in this very slideshow before he got traded, will be moving left and right and not the big names.
Here are the top five under-the-radar players that could move before the deadline.
