NHL Trade Deadline Open Thread

Your stop to talk Deadline Day

The day we’ve all been waiting for since practically before the season began: the NHL trade deadline is finally upon us. The Sens have made a couple of minor moves already, most notably trading Dylan DeMelo to the Winnipeg Jets for a 3rd round selection. With the team firmly in a rebuild and the 2020 draft expected to be one of the deepest in recent memory, expect Ottawa to attempt to offload a few of their veteran free agents.

Meanwhile, the General Managers for the rest of the league will be tasked with deciding whether they are buyers or sellers and how best to improve their teams. The expectation is that this will be a quiet deadline but there’s always the possibility for some real fireworks.

This thread will be dedicated to the general on-goings of the deadline, so stick around and talk puck with the S7S staff and community.
