VAILABLE PLAYERS
As of FEB. 19, 2017 :: 10:02pm ET

With the NHL trade deadline quickly approaching (March 1, 2017), TFP has outlined 25 of the top names rumored to be available for trade through various newspapers, radio and television reports, cyberspace and our own league-wide sources. Last season, 18 players listed were traded; 21 players listed were traded in 2015; 15 players listed were moved in 2014, and the season before that saw 17 players dealt.

As part of TFP's Trade Deadline Coverage, this page will be updated regularly and TFP's panel of experts will outline the values of each athlete. As the days inch closer to the deadline, some players may climb or fall off the list, while others may be added. Teams reportedly showing interest will also be added and adjusted as more information becomes available.

No. Player Player Info. Potential Suitors
1
Kevin Shattenkirk, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,250,000 Age:  28
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

All signs point to Blues trading Shattenkirk by the deadline. They want a current NHL player or top prospect and a high draft pick.

2
Martin Hanzal, C/LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,100,000 Age:  29
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

If they haven't signed a contract extension by now, it's not going to happen unless Arizona steps up, which means Hanzal's moving by the deadline.

3
Thomas Vanek, LW/RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $2,600,000 Age:  33
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Primarily due to the expansion draft, it's unlikely Vanek signs an extension in Detroit, making a trade prior to March 1 expected.

4
Matt Duchene, C/LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $6,000,000 Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Like with Landeskog, moving Duchene mid-season is not a must for the Avs. Barring a team's willingness to really step up, this is likely an off-season trade.

5
Gabriel Landeskog, LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,571,429 Age:  24
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Avs don't have to trade Landeskog this season, they can wait until the summer, but that won't stop teams from trying to make a move now.

6
Radim Vrbata, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $1,000,000 Age:  35
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Vrbata's having a very good year, all things considered, and teams will pay a higher price for his tiny salary cap hit.

7
Ben Bishop, G
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,950,000 Age:  30
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Bishop's future still does not appear to be in Tampa and if he's not dealt by March 1, his rights could be moved in June for a much smaller price.

8
Patrik Berglund, C/LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,700,000 Age:  28
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Blues could move Berglund if they can't sign him to an extension. He's a UFA-to-be, and the Blues are in an odd state where moving him makes sense.

9
Patrick Eaves, LW/RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $1,000,000 Age:  32
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Eaves is among the UFA-to-be leaders in goals and points and the Stars will be asking for a high return for Eaves, who's having a career year.

10
Marc-Andre Fleury, G
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,750,000 Age:  32
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Moving Fleury all comes down to the offer and whether the Pens feel they're better dealing him or keeping him for another Cup run and going from there.

11
Michael Stone, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,000,000 Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Coyotes are taking calls on just about everyone, including Stone, who could bring Arizona a solid return before the trade deadline.

12
Shane Doan, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,876,134 Age:  40
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

By all accounts, Doan is willing to move for a few months to a Stanley Cup contender if the right opportunity presented itself.

13
Patrick Sharp, LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,900,000 Age:  35
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Sharp's salary cap hit is a concern for some teams, the Stars would have to cover a chunk, but he's still a solid addition for a contender looking for extra scoring.

14
Jarome Iginla, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,333,333 Age:  39
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Iginla will be dealt before the deadline to a top contender, but it all comes down to price and which team wants his veteran presence the most.

15
Brendan Smith, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $2,750,000 Age:  27
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Smith's an affordable asset for a team in need of help on the backend. His cap hit is attractive and once healthy, is likely on the move by March 1.

16
Alexandre Burrows, LW/RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,500,000 Age:  35
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Burrows has a say in where he ends up, but trade talks won't pick up until the Canucks have a better indication on their season.

17
Johnny Oduya, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,750,000 Age:  35
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Add Oduya to the list of Stars' players who could move by March 1's deadline. His playoff experience is very valuable to Stanley Cup contenders.

18
Brian Boyle, LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $2,000,000 Age:  32
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

If the Bolts feel they can't re-sign Boyle, moving him to a contender appears to be a realistic move, and there will be plenty of teams lining up for his services.

19
Jordan Eberle, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $6,000,000 Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

It's trade deadline season, so naturally Eberle's name is out there. We're not anticipating a trade by the deadline, but he's being talked about.

20
James van Riemsdyk, LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,250,000 Age:  27
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Leafs, as it's been well publicized, aren't moving JVR unless they deal him for a young, top-pair defenseman. So, there you go.

21
P-A Parenteau, RW/LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $1,250,000 Age:  33
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Parenteau's had a solid season with New Jersey, and if the Devils enter sell-mode, he'll command a solid return from a contender in need of depth scoring.

22
Valtteri Filppula, C/LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,000,000 Age:  32
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Tampa is trying to create cap space for next season to sign some of the pending RFAs and Filppula could be the odd man out. He's being shopped.

-
23
Mathieu Perreault, LW/C
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,000,000 Age:  29
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Perreault's name continues to pop up in trade speculation and it seems to be primarily a result of this summer's expansion draft. We shall see.

-
24
Dmitry Kulikov, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,333,333 Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

It sounds like the Sabres are leaning towards trading Kulikov by the deadline, but there's also a chance they try to sign him to a contract extension.

-
25
Cody Franson, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,325,000 Age:  29
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Franson is in the final year of his contract and teams in need of solid depth on the blueline will be knocking on Buffalo's door.

 

NOTABLE MENTIONS
No. Player Player Info. Teams Reported
to have Interest
19
Tyler Bozak, C
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,200,000 Age:  30
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Leafs are not in a rush to move Bozak, but their depth at center makes him expendable -- only if they can package him for a young, top-four defenseman.

-
-
Jonas Brodin, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,200,000 Age:  23
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

With the way things are going for the Wild, moving Brodin mid-season is highly unlikely. But will Minny consider its options? Of course.

-
David Desharnais, C
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,250,000 Age:  30
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Desharnais is a UFA this summer and won't be re-signed by the Habs. Montreal's trying to create some cap space and is looking to move him.

-
-
Brian Gionta, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,250,000 Age:  38
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Depending on how the Sabres' perform in February, Gionta, a pending UFA, could be moved, and the Sabres would want draft picks.

-
-
Josh Gorges, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,900,000 Age:  32
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Gorges has some trade protection, and while he isn't actively being shopped, like last season, the Sabres will entertain calls.

-
-
Travis Hamonic, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,857,142 Age:  26
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

With the way the Isles have rebounded of late, moving Hamonic is even that much more unlikely until the off-season, only if the return is a top-line winger.

-
Jannik Hansen, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $2,500,000 Age:  30
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Canucks are definitely taking calls on Hansen, and while there are no guarantees, the team is expected to get serious about in before the deadline.

-
20
Evander Kane, LW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,250,000 Age:  25
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Kane could be moving again if the Sabres receive an offer they won't be able to turn down. He's not unavailable; the right deal could send him packing.

-
-
Curtis Lazar, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $894,167 Age:  22
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Lazar just isn't seeing the ice time he feels he deserves in Ottawa and that could result in a trade leading up to the deadline.

-
25
Alec Martinez, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,000,000 Age:  29
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Kings aren't actively shopping Martinez, but they will make him available, as they've told some teams, if it means bringing a top-line winger to Los Angeles.

-
Kyle Quincey, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $1,250,000 Age:  31
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Quincey is a UFA this summer and given the Devils' position, all signs point to him being dealt this season. He can add quality depth to a contender.

-
-
Matt Read, RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $3,625,000 Age:  30
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

In an attempt to save some salary cap space, the Flyers could move Read, regardless of their playoff positioning -- but a summer deal seems more likely.

-
-
Drew Stafford, LW/RW
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,350,000 Age:  31
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Stafford, a pending UFA, could be shipped out of Winnipeg if the Jets fall out of contention. His cap hit is a concern, which could lower his price tag.

-
24
Mark Streit, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $5,250,000 Age:  39
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

Moving Streit depends on the Flyers' playoff positioning -- if they fall out, they'll move him. He'll become a UFA July 1, which helps based on his cap.

-
24
Fedor Tyutin, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $2,000,000 Age:  33
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Avs are selling, and Tyutin's on the trade block. He's a pending UFA and he'll add quality depth to a contender's bottom pair.

-
-
Sami Vatanen, D
2016-17 Salary Cap Hit:  $4,875,000 Age:  25
Status:  Available, Not Yet Traded

The Ducks aren't actively shopping Vatanen, but they appear willing to part with him if it means bringing in a top-six left winger who can put the puck in the net.
