Top 30 candidates to be moved at the deadline

Top 30 candidates to be moved at the deadline

The NHL All-Star Break trade bait list has been updated with the top 30 candidates likely to move before the trade deadline on March 3, 2023.

Timo Meier is the name that skyrockets to the top of this list as most likely to be dealt with after Bo Horvat was traded to the New York Islanders. His situation is similar to that of Horvat even if he will be RFA in July and not UFA. Any team negotiating for Meier has long-term plans in mind.

Jakob Chychrun also remains near the top of the list and likely would have been traded by now if not for the high asking price from the Arizona Coyotes. For New York Rangers fans, you will see two blue shirts have been added.

Let’s look at the latest names on the trade list.

Notable occupations:

Bo Horvat to New York Islanders

An overview of the best business candidates December 3, 2022; New York, New York, United States; Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane (88) argues with an official during the third period against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Mandatory Credit: Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports

Timo Meier: The 26-year-old is having a great year with 28 goals and 48 points in 51 games. The New Jersey Devils are considered the strongest contender to acquire him, but the Buffalo Sabers could also be a contender for his services. According to Pierre LeBrun, the extension for Timo Meier should be at least $9 million per season.

Jakob Chychrun: Arizona’s most prized asset is playing very well after being plagued with injuries that delayed the start of his season. In 34 games, he scored 25 points. With 3 years remaining on his contract (this season plus two more) and an excellent AAV of $4.6 million, he is an excellent cost-controlled top 4 d-man.

Patrick Kane: The future Hall of Famer has 34 points in 45 games for a very poor Blackhawks team this season. Kane will be a UFA this summer and has a full ban clause to control where he lands. The Blackhawks will also have to keep 50% of their $10.5 million cap for potential suitors like the New York Rangers, Colorado Avalanche, Boston Bruins and Edmonton Oilers. Although recent injury issues make his status at the deadline murky.

Vladimir Tarasenko: The 31-year-old forward has 29 points in 38 games and is off the injured list. The pending UFA is believed to be testing the market this summer and has yet to cancel a public trade request before the start of the 2021-22 season. Is this going to be a showcase for the big right wing until the NHL’s March 3 trade deadline? This seems to be the case.

Ryan O’Reilly: The St. Louis captain is currently in LTIR and wants to stay with the Blues. Of course, St. Louis’ playoff hopes are dwindling by the day, and they’ll likely want to revamp that roster with younger players. The 31-year-old has 16 points in 37 games and should be back before the trade deadline.
