The NHL trade deadline is Wednesday, March 5, at 3 p.m. ET, and there is no shortage of big names rumored to be potentially on the move.
This year's deadline is an especially tough one to gauge. Coming out of the Olympic break, only five teams (Edmonton, Calgary, Buffalo, Florida, N.Y. Islanders) are unquestionably sellers. That leaves 25 teams that would like to add some pieces for a playoff push. That's a big market for the likes of Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller.
Another unique facet of the approaching deadline is the number of contending teams reportedly interested in dealing their key players. Ryan Kesler of the Canucks, Martin St. Louis of the Lightning and Ryan Callahan of the Rangers have had their names tossed around quite a bit.
Who are the 25 best players who could moving between now and the deadline? Glad you asked, because that's what this slideshow aims to provide. Will all these players have new homes next week? Most definitely not, but a lot of them could be wearing new uniforms in early March.
