8:18 am: The calm before the storm that has become a tradition in the last couple of seasons on Trade Deadline day. The sellers are open for business. Teams like Ottawa, Detroit, and New Jersey should be among the most active when selling players off today. Watch for teams like Montreal and Los Angeles to make some surprise moves. Could a player like Max Domi be on the move? Does Toronto trade Tyson Barrie? The Canadian teams could be very active today.


When it comes to buyers, there are plenty of teams that could be looking to add. Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver could all be looking to add to their bluelines. Winnipeg could be in that group too depending on where they feel like there headed post-deadline. Does Pittsburgh or Washington had a move in their back pocket?
