Chris Johnston's NHL trade board 4.0: As bubbles pop, more than a dozen new names enter the fray

Last Update :
The Athletic

With less than a month remaining before the NHL’s March 8 trade deadline, we’re still looking for highly motivated sellers to spark more activity.

The Calgary Flames have done their part, sending Nikita Zadorov and Elias Lindholm to the Vancouver Canucks in separate deals this season, and they’ve still got other quality players on the market. The Montreal Canadiens dealt Sean Monahan to the Winnipeg Jets for a first-round pick over the All-Star break, but they’re like a lot of teams at the bottom of the standings with little else to sell.

Remember that the Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks, Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks and Columbus Blue Jackets have already been sellers stretching back multiple deadlines.

The most intrigue will be found among the bubble teams as the standings start to crystallize throughout February. Whether or not teams like the Seattle Kraken, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins ultimately declare themselves sellers will probably determine how interesting this trading period ends up being.

With that in mind, here’s the fourth edition of our Big Board, featuring a season-high 44 total players, including 16 new ones.

Considered a team-first warrior who still profiles as an effective shutdown defender, Tanev is in high demand among contenders looking for an upgrade on their blue lines and dressing rooms. More than 10 teams have checked in on his availability, which has left the Flames hoping to garner a first-round pick as part of a deal involving him.

Tanev has some say in his next destination courtesy of a 10-team no-trade list.

A right shot with penalty-killing chops, he’s garnered a reputation for playing the game the right way over 12 NHL seasons. That means finishing checks, blocking shots and keeping opponents to the outside — whatever it takes to give his team the best chance at success.

Tanev can be had as a rental, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see a team try to get his signature on an extension when swinging a deal with the Flames.

Shutdown defenseman

The winds have shifted on this situation multiple times throughout a season in which the Flames have engaged in talks about a contract extension with Hanifin’s agent.

With his signature still not on a new deal, the Flames need to start focusing on the trade market.

Hanifin is a 6-foot-3 defenseman who ticks multiple boxes: a strong skater who can be trusted to log 20-plus minutes per night and contribute at both ends of the ice. He’s in the absolute prime of his career.

He is also playing out the final year of a cap-friendly contract that carries appeal for contenders trying to limbo under the cap ceiling.

The Flames will likely have to work in concert with the player when it comes time to make a trade — in part because he owns a limited eight-team no-trade clause, but also because they have an opportunity to maximize the return if he signs an extension as part of a move.

Player type

Top-pair defenseman in his prime

Acquired from the Kings over the summer as cap relief in a three-way trade that included Columbus, Walker has been a revelation in Philadelphia. The right-shot defenseman is playing more than 19 minutes per night and putting up offensive numbers at a career-best rate.

Known throughout his NHL career as a player who likes to join the attack, Walker seems to have struck a nice balance since joining the Flyers. The team is consistently carrying the play offensively when he’s on the ice at five-on-five.

Walker is also playing on an affordable (and expiring) contract, which makes him a strong asset for the Flyers to sell before the deadline, especially after adding 21-year-old defenseman Jamie Drysdale in the Cutter Gauthier trade with Anaheim in January.

Player type

Offensive defenseman

In a market short on players who can play centre, Henrique stands out. The 34-year-old is well on his way to another 20-goal season and he’s done it while winning nearly 54 percent of his faceoffs.

Henrique is known for having excellent hockey sense and is thirsting for a chance to return to the playoffs after appearing just four postseason games since being part of the 2012 New Jersey Devils team that lost to Los Angeles in the Stanley Cup Final.

As a pending unrestricted free agent on a retooling team, Henrique profiles as a traditional trade-deadline rental.

There’s also versatility to his toolbox. He can chip in on the power play, kill penalties or play the wing, if needed.

Player type

Versatile veteran eager for another shot

It’s been a disastrous season in the Canadian capital, and attention will soon turn toward reloading with future assets. Tarasenko should be an easy piece to sell. The Russian winger doesn’t generate scoring chances at the rate he once did, but he still possesses the kind of shot needed to put the puck in the net. Built like a tank, he can win puck battles along the wall and fight through the traffic we’re accustomed to seeing in playoff hockey.

Crucially, Tarasenko is also on an expiring contract and has experienced just about everything the game has to offer. The 2019 Stanley Cup winner was a trade-deadline pickup by the New York Rangers last year and shouldn’t have any trouble acclimating to a new environment.

Of note is the fact Tarasenko recently changed agents — for the fourth time in three years — which can be viewed as a sign he wants help navigating his way to a more appealing situation.

No progress has been made toward an extension for the pending unrestricted free agent, and it’s difficult to imagine Pittsburgh walking him right to the open market in a year when it appears qualifying for the playoffs is going to be difficult.

That makes Guentzel potentially a major chip for Penguins general manager Kyle Dubas to play.

He’s an undersized winger who performs much bigger than his stature, especially when the stakes are highest. He has an eye-popping 34 goals in 58 career playoff games.

After having right ankle surgery in August, Guentzel has seen no decline in his production and finds himself on pace for 37 goals and 85 points through Sunday while playing almost exclusively alongside Sidney Crosby.

There is nothing imminent here. Dubas wants to give his team more time to get back into the playoff race before making significant roster decisions. But if the Penguins are unable to do that, Dubas will have multiple suitors for Guentzel.

$10.3 million

Player type

Top-line winger

Laughton is under contract for two seasons beyond this one, so the Flyers are under no pressure to trade him. But you can understand why contenders would come calling on a glue guy who kills penalties and plays with an edge to his game.

It’s been a challenging season for the 11-year NHL veteran — an “inconsistent” one in the words of Flyers coach John Tortorella — and that’s reflected in a drop in his goals, points and ice time. Still, Laughton accounts for just $3 million against the cap and represents a bottom-six upgrade for most teams.

The Flyers are willing to listen to offers on just about any of their players.

What he lacks in size, he makes up for in smarts. The right-shot defenseman may noy be equipped to muscle opponents off the puck with his 5-foot-11 frame, but he’s a positionally sound player who gets around the ice well.

He’s also a pending unrestricted free agent making just $2.5 million — good value for someone who plays north of 18 minutes per night.

Carrier is a reliable shot-blocker known for having a competitive streak. Consider him a strong depth option for a team trying to insulate itself for a long playoff run.

Still carrying three goaltenders more than halfway through the season, something is going to have to give in Montreal. And management has seemingly tipped its hand by signing Samuel Montembeault to a three-year extension on Dec. 1.

Allen is the most proven commodity among the men protecting the Habs crease, with more than 400 regular-season NHL appearances on his resume and another 29 in the playoffs. He’s also got one year under contract beyond the current one, which could carry added appeal for those seeking something more than a quick fix.

The only potential complicating factor is a limited seven-team no-trade list in Allen’s contract. There’s also the fact that he remains loyal to the team and chose to sign an extension in Montreal a year ago rather than testing the free-agent waters last summer.

Still, in a league with a number of uncertain situations in the crease, he’s a potential stabilizer who multiple contenders are keeping close tabs on.

Player type

Proven 1B goalie

No stranger to the trade board, Chychrun’s name has started surfacing again with the Senators facing a positional logjam.

Ottawa has more than $16 million per season tied up in long-term deals for left-shot defensemen Thomas Chabot and Jake Sanderson, and Chychrun is eligible for unrestricted free agency in 2025. He’ll almost certainly be seeking a raise on his $4.6 million salary at that point.

So the Senators may elect to get ahead of an approaching problem early, especially since there will be added value for an acquiring team in having Chychrun under contract for two cracks at the playoffs rather than just one as a rental.

Chychrun is a strong skater with a cannon for a shot and is currently on pace for a 50-point season.

One of the NHL’s leaders in blocked shots, Seeler plays a black-and-blue game while counting a league-minimum salary against the cap. That’s marketable enough in its own right. Seeler is also a big, physical penalty-killer currently playing out the final year of his contract and should be no trouble to move as the deadline draws nearer.

Every contender is searching for defensive depth. They don’t come much lower maintenance than Seeler.

Player type

Low-maintenance defensive depth

A second-line center in Seattle, Wennberg is another potential option for teams looking to strengthen themselves down the middle. Not known as a big point producer throughout his NHL career, the 29-year-old can play in all situations and be trusted on the defensive side of the puck.

As a bonus, Wennberg can be counted on in the faceoff dot and on the penalty kill. He’s a pending unrestricted free agent earning $4.5 million and has a 10-team no-trade list.

The goals have not come easily for Eberle this season, and the Kraken remain on the outside of the playoff picture even after a red-hot start to 2024. With unrestricted free agency on the horizon, that combination of factors could see the veteran winger moved by March 8.

Eberle is best deployed on a skilled line counted on to produce offensively. He’s scored at above a 20-goal-per-82-game pace in every NHL season before this one — when he’s seen the goals dry up amid the worst shooting percentage stretch of a career that’s spanned nearly 1,000 games.

Contenders will find some comfort in his history of scoring big goals. He also gained valuable experience during two long playoff runs with the New York Islanders.

A return to Edmonton could make sense from all sides here.

Player type

Veteran winger

Currently producing at a 35-goal, 61-point pace, Vatrano is having by far his most productive NHL season. That earned him a trip to the NHL All-Star Game as the Ducks representative.

He’s always had a nose for the net but has made some defensive improvements despite playing on one of the league’s weakest teams.

A competitive player under contract through next season at $3.65 million, Vatrano can be slotted in on a second line or called on to add some scoring punch from the bottom six.

He’s also a threat to score a short-handed goal when used as part of the penalty kill.

A physical defenseman best suited for a third-pairing role, what you see is what you get from Lyubushkin. He’ll kill penalties, finish checks and try to keep the play in front of him. Let’s brand it meat-and-potatoes hockey.

Fortunately for the Ducks, it’s a style that teams looking for a long run through the spring tend to appreciate and covet.

Lyubushkin is also playing on an expiring deal and getting paid at a level reflected in his performance, which will add an extra level of attraction.

Player type

Meat-and-potatoes defenseman

A big shutdown defenseman with Stanley Cup pedigree, Edmundson is ideally slotted on a third pairing. He’s made a living out of clearing opponents from the front of his net and making them pay a physical price while doing so. His game is simple, straightforward and valued when the games tighten up in the playoffs.

As a pending unrestricted free agent carrying just a $1.75 million cap hit, he’s an attractive rental option.

A fourth-line center who makes a strong defensive impact, Dowd is far from the biggest name available at this deadline period. But he’s a strong candidate to become a useful under-the-radar acquisition.

The Capitals absolutely bury Dowd with defensive zone starts at five-on-five, and they still manage to more than hold their own when he’s on the ice. He’s a trusted penalty killer and is decent in the faceoff circle. He’s even got good hands when he finds himself with a scoring opportunity.

Dowd also carries a $1.3 million cap charge that can easily be squeezed under the salary cap ceiling.

The man with a year-round playoff beard has appeared in 150 postseason games and lifted the Stanley Cup on three separate occasions. The list of active NHL players with a resume that matches that is incredibly short.

Maroon also knows a thing or two about how best to fit in with a new team — he’s on his sixth NHL organization — which should bring a measure of comfort to anyone who considers adding him as a rental.

Ultimately, Maroon is a culture guy whose impact is best measured by more than goals, points or minutes played. He’s actually seen an uptick in some of those metrics on an up-and-down Wild team, which is why despite currently being out (back surgery), he projects as a player who could be traded to a playoff squad unless Minnesota can rally its way back into a playoff spot in a hurry.

Player type

Locker-room presence

A streaky scorer, historically, who has seen his offensive totals dip this season primarily due to a drop in power-play output, Kubalik is a rental on a reasonable contract who hasn’t found a great fit in Ottawa. He could be a low-cost addition with upside potential for a team looking for help with the man advantage.

Kubalik put up strong numbers during his only playoff appearance with Chicago during the 2020 pandemic bubble.

Player type

Low-cost streaky scorer

Nearly a point-per-game player across the past three years with the Blues, Buchnevich is a big, strong winger who skates well and possesses a high-end shot. That makes him the rare top-line talent who could be moved in the run-up to this deadline.

St. Louis has the ability to hold the line with its ask since Buchnevich’s contract runs through the end of next season. The Blues are going to need a haul — think a first-round pick plus other assets — in order to move him now. His $5.8 million cap hit will be a challenge for some teams to accommodate, but at least he’s producing at a level commensurate with that number, on pace for a 29-goal, 68-point season.

Two years removed from a 31-goal season, Duclair has understandably been slowed by the torn Achilles tendon he had surgically repaired last year in Florida.

Still, he’s playing on an expiring contract carrying a reasonable cap hit and looks like a promising buy-low candidate from a Sharks team that is headed nowhere this season and hungry to add future assets.

Duclair has good hands and can play either wing. He was part of the Panthers’ run to the Cup Final last spring, scoring 11 points in 20 playoff games.

Player type

Middle-six scorer

The 2017 first-rounder was in and out of the lineup for the retooling Flyers early in the season, which is a bit of a surprise after he played 81 games for them last season. He’s since gained more of a foothold with the second-line center’s job and seen a resulting spike in his production.

Frost is one of the youngest players to appear on this trade board and certainly doesn’t need to be moved with one year beyond this remaining on his contract and restricted free agency looming beyond that.

Yes, there’s still an opportunity for this situation to go in a different direction. But Philadelphia is open for business and Frost is a 24-year-old center with a 19-goal season already under his belt, and the Flyers would consider just about anything put in front of them right now.

Player type

Stalled prospect

San Jose has not been a place for any goaltender to show his best work, whether it be Kähkönen or partner Mackenzie Blackwood. The Sharks have the worst defensive metrics of any team in the NHL. Still, in a clouded goaltending market, either could be considered a potential buy-low option.

Kähkönen is a pending free agent who put up decent numbers for Minnesota earlier in his career and had a goals-saved-above-expected mark of 5.2 as recently as the 2021-22 season.

It’s been much rougher since then, but context matters. Whether measured by shots against, chances against or expected goals against, the Sharks have been a bottom-five team defensively since the start of last season.

Player type

Buy-low goalie

A three-time Stanley Cup champion and now second all-time among NHL goaltenders in career victories, Fleury possesses a mix of aura and ability.

The circumstances would have to be right to get him to waive his no-movement clause ahead of the deadline for the second time in three years — namely the promise of stepping into the No. 1 role on a playoff-bound team — but they are not completely beyond the realm of possibility. It certainly helps that Fleury has always been known as an incredibly popular teammate.

His passion for the game also continues to burn bright. And on a Minnesota team currently trying to make up a considerable distance in the Western Conference’s wild-card race, Fleury managed a consistent run of games when tandem-mate Filip Gustavsson was sidelined with an injury entering the new year.

Player type

Aging champion goalie

While the 35-year-old defenseman has made it clear he’d prefer to ride out the season in Buffalo, the Sabres are going to have a chance to turn him into an asset.

Johnson carries nearly 1,000 games of NHL experience and won a Stanley Cup with Colorado in 2022. He’s a steady defender who can deliver safe minutes if deployed in a bottom-of-the-roster role. He’s averaging 14 minutes per night for the Sabres this season.

As a pure rental playing out a $3.5 million contract, Johnson’s off-ice leadership will carry appeal for contenders looking to round out their depth.

It’s been four years since Boqvist saw action in the AHL, but he’s still searching for his place as an NHLer.

The Swede has strong offensive instincts and appears to have plenty of room to grow into his game. He projects as a future power-play specialist who can rush the puck with confidence, but he’s been caught up in a numbers game on the Blue Jackets blue line and isn’t an everyday player right now. He also just returned from a stint on injured reserve.

That probably won’t help boost his value on the trade market.

Player type

Somewhat distressed asset

Peeke is a mobile right-shot defenseman who excels in the defensive aspects of the game but has had difficulty carving out a consistent spot in the Blue Jackets lineup this season.

Under contract for two years beyond this one, he carries promise for any team that believes there’s still room for growth in his play.

Peeke is a big man at 6-foot-3, but he isn’t known for being physical. He struggles when pressured by opponents, according to a rival scout, but seems like a prime candidate to benefit from a change of scenery.

Player type

Depth defenseman

Having found himself sitting as a healthy scratch this season for the first time since he was on his entry-level contract, the veteran defenseman would like a change of scenery.

Barrie’s power-play usage is limited in Nashville because he’s slotted behind Roman Josi in the rotation, but the man advantage remains where the right shot can make the biggest impact. A strong skater with excellent offensive instincts, he’s best deployed in a sheltered five-on-five role and big PP minutes. Those qualities make him an attractive addition for those in need of a boost to their special teams.

Barrie is playing on an expiring contract carrying a $4.5 million cap hit, and the Predators aren’t likely to retain salary as part of a trade since they only have one retention spot available for the remainder of the season.

Player type

Offensive defenseman

A former Vezina Trophy finalist who is having a major bounce-back season, Markström is in the upper echelon of players at his position. Simply put: There aren’t many goaltenders who have matched his level of play over the past six or seven seasons. But with the Flames looking at unloading multiple proven performers ahead of this trade deadline, there are rival teams inquiring about the 33-year-old’s availability.

Markström holds all of the cards with a no-movement clause. He enjoys living and playing in Calgary, so it would have to be the right situation for him to sign off on a trade. And the fact that he’s due to earn $6 million for two seasons beyond this one is no doubt a complicating factor to consider, too.

Still, with multiple Stanley Cup contenders in search of goaltending help, the possibility of him being moved can’t be ruled out entirely.

Player type

Go-big goalie option

A two-time Stanley Cup champion with Tampa Bay, there are intangibles that come with Johnson’s 116 games of playoff experience. When healthy this season, he’s played up the lineup on a rebuilding Chicago squad, but he will more comfortably slot into the bottom six on a deeper roster.

Johnson has made up for a lack of size with his speed and smarts throughout his NHL career.

He’s one of a handful of pending UFAs the Blackhawks have to peddle at this year’s deadline.

Player type

Cup-experienced bottom-six forward

The offensive aspects of his game may not be what they once were, but Dumba remains a decent skater who has the ability to deliver a punishing open-ice hit. He’s also a right-shot defenseman and can be added as a rental on a reasonable cap hit.

He’s playing nearly 20 minutes per game this season (probably a little too much) and is seeing significant usage on the penalty kill. Insulated on a deeper blue line, he could be an intriguing fit if the Coyotes aren’t able to keep pace in the Western Conference’s wild-card race.

Player type

Veteran defenseman / leader

A consistent scorer across his NHL career, albeit now a declining one, Hoffman holds a limited amount of appeal for two main reasons. 1) He’s on an expiring contract, and the cost to acquire him won’t be very high. And 2) It is not unreasonable to surmise that he’s currently in a difficult spot to maximize his abilities on a Sharks team lacking high-end offensive players.

Put it together, and he might be worth rolling the dice on. There’s not much to lose.

Player type

Veteran sniper

An offensive specialist with his prime years still ahead, Zegras is certainly not a player the Ducks have to move — either at this deadline or beyond it. But it’s believed they’re at least willing to listen on a forward the organization has been pushing to round out his game.

Given the unique circumstances at play — Zegras is still just 22, signed for two more years and already has a pair of 60-point seasons under his belt — Anaheim would need something significant in return to make a deal work.

It’s worth noting that Zegras isn’t expected to return to the Ducks lineup again until just before the trade deadline after having surgery on a broken ankle, which could turn this into a summer discussion.

Player type

Potential offensive star

The fit hasn’t been quite right in Pittsburgh since Smith arrived in a trade shortly after celebrating a Stanley Cup win with the Golden Knights last summer. He’s well off the pace of last season’s 26-goal, 56-point campaign.

Still, Smith is an intriguing player because of a strong two-way game. He can contribute on both special-teams units and be trusted with a role on a line that handles tough matchups at even strength.

The 32-year-old is signed through the 2024-25 season at a $5 million cap hit, which may bring added appeal since he could be added for multiple playoff runs.

Player type

Veteran do-it-all forward

With the Oilers on the hunt for a top-six winger, Foegele could be the odd man out with his $2.75 million in cap space potentially needed for the upgrade.

He’s a big, competitive winger who is currently producing at the best rate of his NHL career. But he’s also a pending unrestricted free agent.

Foegele is versatile and can be slotted across the lineup and used on both specialty teams.

The fit has never been quite right in Washington for Mantha, who acknowledged during training camp, “I feel like I haven’t been the player they wanted so far.”

At least the big winger has rediscovered a scoring touch, with 16 goals this season — his highest total in six years.

Even though Mantha has been available on the trade market dating back to last year, his contract should become easier to move as he gets closer to unrestricted free agency this summer. The Capitals could even deploy retention to make it more palatable.

Mantha is a one-shot scorer who needs a lot of help getting the puck in shooting areas. Motivation shouldn’t be an issue with the direction his career has gone in since being traded to the Capitals from Detroit in 2021.

Player type

One-shot scorer who needs help

The former No. 2 pick hasn’t developed into the kind of game-breaker scouts thought he’d be. In fact, he appears to have regressed this season on a Rangers team with designs on challenging for the Stanley Cup.

His name has started to surface in the rumor mill with the team looking to upgrade its forward group. As a 22-year-old with more than 250 games of NHL experience, he might be more tantalizing as a trade chip than a late first-round draft pick.

A big, physical defenseman who is known to occasionally overplay the puck and have issues in the defensive zone, Ristolainen can be a polarizing player. His underlying numbers in Philadelphia this season paint an encouraging picture, though, and he’s still just 29 years old. Something for shoppers to consider, at minimum.

Ristolainen carries a $5.1 million cap charge for the next three years, but it’s believed the Flyers are open to salary retention in order to make a deal work.

Player type

Physical defenseman

While his offensive output has flat-lined in recent seasons, Kapanen remains a top-end skater with an appealing set of tools. The 27-year-old is also playing out the final year of a contract paying him $3.2 million and carries little risk as a rental addition.

The acquisition cost shouldn’t be too high here, and a fresh start could be beneficial to a winger who does have a 20-goal season on his resume.

A talented finisher who has battled consistency issues, Vrana currently finds himself playing for AHL Springfield.

Still, teams only need to look at how he closed last season to see the type of impact the speedy winger can make as he had 10 goals and 14 points in 20 games after being acquired by the Blues.

He’s playing on an expiring contract that carries a $2.625 million cap hit — and that’s a number that might be chopped down further if St. Louis can be compelled to retain salary.

While Vrana may be running low on second chances, he seems like a candidate to get at least one more. The offensive upside in his game is difficult to ignore.

Player type

Out-of-favor goal scorer

The well-traveled DeAngelo is a consistent point producer and power-play quarterback who finds himself available with his second stint in Carolina not going quite as smoothly as the first one did and the Hurricanes carrying a glut of defensemen.

Making well under $2 million on a one-year contract, DeAngelo seems likely to deliver value beyond his cap hit — even when factoring in some of his defensive deficiencies.

A player with a 40-point season and two 50-point campaigns under his belt, some questions remain about DeAngelo’s off-ice maturity. But there’s little debate about his ability to shoot and move the puck.

Plugged into the proper role, he can make a difference.

Player type

Power-play specialist

A winger with the offensive instincts to complement a line counted on to score, Barabanov has established himself as a reliable NHLer during his three seasons in San Jose. But with the Sharks more focused on future assets than players who can help now, and with Barabanov slated to hit free agency this summer, he’ll be available on the trade market.

Barabanov’s start to this season was interrupted by a broken finger, and the production was slow to return once he got back in the lineup. Still, with an expiring contract, there isn’t a whole lot of risk here.

Player type

Middle-six winger

Meaningful NHL minutes have not been made available to Broberg and the 22-year-old’s patience is running thin. The No. 8 pick from 2019 is currently plying his trade with AHL Bakersfield. The Oilers continue to believe in the skill set that prompted them to use that pick on the 6-foot-4 defenseman, but they’re in win-now mode and may ultimately be forced to accommodate his desire for a regular NHL opportunity elsewhere.

Should that happen, Broberg would be a valuable trade chip as the Oilers look to strengthen themselves for a run at the Stanley Cup. He carries big upside potential.

Player type

Struggling prospect

With the Ducks heading toward a sixth straight playoff-less season, there will be renewed interest in Gibson, whose name has been part of trade discussions during recent offseasons and is surfacing again now with so many rival teams looking for an upgrade in goal.

The Anaheim mainstay is having a good season individually, with a strong output in goals saved above expected, and he has shown himself to be a workhorse throughout an 11-year pro career.

The biggest obstacle is the $6.4 million cap hit Gibson carries through the 2026-27 season. In a capped-out NHL world, that significantly complicates any potential transaction. But at 30 years old, Gibson may be more than worth the trouble.

Player type

Veteran workhorse
