The NHL trade deadline is fast approaching, all the General Managers and Scouts are searching for talent and strength to put their team on top. For those of that don’t know, the trade deadline is a date set by the NHL office after which no trades are allowed for the remainder of the season. This year’s deadline is sure to include some big trades and big names including:
C- Jeff Carter, Columbus Blue Jackets
RW- Rick Nash, Columbus Blue Jackets
LW- Tuomo Ruutu, Carolina Hurricanes
RW- Ales Hemsky, Edmonton Oilers
D- Pavel Kubina, Tampa Bay Lightning
The deadline this year is on February 27th 2012. The trades will end at 3:00 pm. All teams are expected to get involved. I think the main teams looking to buy will be Montreal, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Calgary, Toronto, Phoenix, Ottawa, New York I., Columbus and Edmonton. The Trade Deadline will always be one of my favourite days during the season and it is always sure to bring excitement and lots of trades.
