Steven Stamkos, Tampa Bay Lightning: So long as this pending free agent superstar remains unsigned, rival clubs will be interested in him. With the Lightning battling for a playoff berth and Stamkos holding a no-movement clause, it's doubtful he hits the trade block on Feb. 29.
Kyle Okposo, New York Islanders: On pace for 60-plus points this season, the 27-year-old winger could draw considerable interest in the trade market. However, with Okposo leading the Isles in scoring, it's unlikely they'll shop him now.
Loui Eriksson, Boston Bruins: The 30-year-old winger is enjoying his best season in years. A pending free agent, he's become an invaluable part of the Bruins lineup. Eriksson's trade value is high this season, but with the Bruins in the playoff hunt, it's doubtful they'll shop him.
Jaromir Jagr, Florida Panthers: A free agent in July, the ageless wonder is the Panthers' leading scorer and a big reason behind their surprising surge atop the Atlantic Division. The 43-year-old will attract lots of attention if he's placed on the trade block, but that's not going to happen.
Andrew Ladd, Winnipeg Jets: His production is down compared to the last two seasons, which lowers his value. A free agent in July, the Jets could trade him. As they struggle to stay in the playoff chase, however, they're likely to retain their captain.
Shane Doan, Arizona Coyotes: The 39-year-old right wing is enjoying a bit of a bounce-back performance this season. Although he's in the twilight of his career, some playoff contenders could pursue him as a playoff rental. However, with the Coyotes still in the postseason picture, he'll probably stay put.
Jiri Hudler, Calgary Flames: Coming off a career-best 76-point campaign, Hudler's trade stock was high entering this season. However, he's battled injury while struggling to score this season. While his value has dropped, the Flames will likely hang onto him as they push for a playoff spot.
Kris Russell, Calgary Flames: With the Flames struggling earlier this season, there was speculation Russell might be traded. A pending free agent in July, the 28-year-old is their top shot-blocker. With the Flames back in playoff contention, they will retain him.
Justin Schultz, Edmonton Oilers: As Schultz continues to struggle, Oilers management could try to peddle him at the trade deadline. A club that is seeking blue-line depth might take a chance on the 25-year-old blueliner, who is a restricted free agent.
