The NHL trade deadline is fast approaching on Feb. 29, and rumours abound for each of the league's 30 franchises.
Teams with a legitimate chance at contending are looking to upgrade—to add that final piece that might make all the difference. Clubs with no chance at the postseason are looking to maximize the trade return on players who aren't in their future plans. Organizations caught between those two extremes tend to do a little bit of both.
The following slideshow offers up one trade suggestion for each NHL team. These aren't trade rumours; rather, this is speculation based on what individual teams need and who they might plausibly find to address those needs.
In each case, we offer a brief description of a potential target, consider the possible acquisition cost and then explain why it makes sense to the team in question.
