The NHL trade deadline is Wednesday but one of the biggest names is off the market. Calgary captain Jarome Iginla was dealt to Pittsburgh last week. Here are some other players who could be on the move ahead of the deadline:
The Vancouver Canucks netminder may seem ripe for the picking now that he essentially plays backup to Cory Schneider, but there are other factors at play besides his goalkeeping. He still gets plenty of ice time and has teamed up with his fellow goalie to make the Canucks consistent contenders in the northwest division. Plus, with about $47 million left on a deal that runs through 2022, other teams may feel he comes with too high a price tag.
The Dallas Stars picked up the 41-year-old forward in the off-season and signed him to a one-year deal worth $4.55 million, but a change in strategy may see the veteran player packing his bags again. Like other teams trying hard to stay in the playoff picture, the Stars have to decide whether they'd prefer a sound roster today or a potentially stronger, more youthful team down the road. Update: Jagr to Boston pre-deadline.
He's become one of the Washington Capitals' top scorers since coming on board to punch up the team's second line, but he's said he'll only stick around if he's offered a long-term deal. The two sides are reportedly trying to hammer out an agreement before Ribeiro becomes an unrestricted free agent.
If Calgary is really in fire-sale mode and intent on rebuilding there is also goalie Miikka Kiprusoff, who has already drawn the interest of the playoff-hungry Toronto Maple Leafs. But rumours suggest the 36-year-old veteran may have his sights set on a return to his home country of Finland and never planned to finish the final year on his current three-year contract.
