Arguably, the trade deadline has become one of the National Hockey League's crown jewels in terms of driving fan and media interests.
While there are so many scenarios that will likely unfold over the next 10 days, the attention the NHL gains from this once considered "nothing event" will certain steer the league towards its annual showdown that is the Stanley Cup playoffs.
The intriguing part of any season's time prior to the trade deadline is that there is always a key player of interest that just about everyone is waiting to see where they may end up.
If the NHL wants more 24/7 coverage, HBO should tag along with a player who is bound to be moved and follow their life for the time leading up to and including the day of the trade deadline. That might be another story all together.
This season is shaping up as to not disappoint us in the trade activity, with a few major deals occurring prior to the deadline. On average, there are usually two significant deals made prior to each of the last five trade deadlines, so this season seems to be right on par.
However, there are three teams that will, in all likelihood, not make any deals as February 28 approaches. For these teams, they will wait and see how the dust settles after the trade deadline and prepare the best they can towards completing the remaining games in the NHL regular season.
Here is a look at the three teams that will not make any trades on NHL trade deadline.
