With the NHL Trade Deadline having passed on Monday, it's time for many teams (and fans) to stop and take a look at all of the deals that have been completed over the last few weeks.
However, in many cases, it's the deals that haven't been done that can tell us more about a team's plans than the ones that were. After all, there are always dozens of players who could use a trade to a contender, or to get ice time, or just actively want to leave, but precious few actually get the chance.
We're bringing you the 15 players who could have used a trade, were almost traded but wound up staying put. These guys could have been serious help to contenders, but their teams, for one reason or another, decided to keep them where they were.
So strap on you skates, grab your replica Ken Dryden mask, and let's get started, shall we?
