“Trade Bait.”

“Out with the Old in With the New.”

“Who’s Selling & Who’s Buying??”

The NHL Trade Deadline is an incredibly important time for organizations & Players. Let’s face it, sport is first and foremost a business and from the players perspective a commodities market – guns for hire – make yourself valuable & earn a job. But, there is a human element to sport and player moves that CANNOT be ignored.
