Shaping the Trade Deadline
Stanley Cup Playoff Push: How standings are shaping the trade deadline 🏒 Even this close to the trade deadline, the NHL's regular season standings are still shaping how certain GMs will act. With four days until the closing of trade business, we've seen some unexpected swings lately. Nashville was the earliest mover, going on a hot run that has turned it from a hard seller to a stand-pat team at least. San Jose has had a nice little run of its own, while Arizona, a would-be seller, may have no choice but to push on now.
