February 7th, 2008 | Posted by admin in NHL trade rumors

The NHL 2008 Trade Deadline is approaching in less than 3 weeks and as we creep closer expect some serious hockey trades before the playoffs start. The 5 players I am going to list have been in there fair share of hockey trade rumors and have a good possibility of being traded before the NHL Trade Deadline.

  1. Mats Sundin – Sundin Trade rumors have been flying since before John Ferguson was fired as Leafs GM. If Sundin is traded, expect him back in a Toronto jersey next season. Trade rumors have Sundin going to Philadelphia, Vancouver or any other playoff contender, especially Canadian teams.
  2. Olli Jokinen – Jokinen trade rumors started at the beginning of 2008, although Jokinen denies all rumors. Jokinen has been rumored to be heading to the Canadians
  3. Marian Hossa- Hossa trade rumors started because his contract is up at the end of this year and the Thrashers want to get some return for the player since his contract will be too big for the Thrashers to resign him.
  4. Rob Blake – Rob Blake was traded at the NHL trade deadline once before to the Avs and he won a Stanley Cup. The trade rumors have Rob Blake going to the Detroit Red Wings
  5. Alex Tanguay – Trade rumors have Tanguay in a possible trade for Olli Jokinen. Tanguay is overpaid but could still help some teams offensively
