Avs are technically "buyers" but won't be very aggressive. I won't be the least bit surprised if they do nothing at the deadline.

The only truly extraneous players they have are Mark Barberio and Colin Wilson, and both are out with injuries.

Mike Russo of The Athletic is very strongly hinting that there might be something big goin' down in Minnesota tomorrow.

My guess? Mark Stone ends up a Wild and Crazy Guy.

Two more games till the All-Star Break, which means teams are starting to figure out if they'll be buyers or sellers. Quite a few really desperate teams that you wouldn't expect to be in danger of missing the playoffs.

Motivated buyers: Maple Leafs, Golden Knights, Flames, Predators, Blackhawks, Hurricanes, Coyotes, Panthers, Oilers, Jets

Motivated sellers: Wild, Kings, Ducks, Sharks, Devils, Rangers, Red Wings

Potential swingers (likely renters): Canadiens, Flyers, Blue Jackets, Sabres

Renters: Bruins, Lightning, Capitals, Blues, Stars, Avalanche, Canucks, Penguins, Islanders

Nothing to buy or sell: Senators

Actually the Sens could probably bring in a decent haul for Jean-Gabriel Pageau, but they're probably keeping him.

They should absolutely keep Duclair as well.

Avs are interesting, I agree that they're "renters" but they're not looking to swing a big deal.

I think the Islanders are more in the category of "someone wake the GM from his long winter's nap."

The Canucks aren't really even in a position to rent, despite rumors surrounding Tryamkin re-entering the fray after the KHL season ends.

If Tryamkin comes back he's going to the NHL. He'll be a long way down the depth chart.

I put the Nucks in the renters camp because if they get an injury or two they might add a depth piece.

For sure. There's no way he takes a two way.

I don't think they should at all but I will be very surprised if they don't. In three to four years when Pettersen and Hughes are peaking is the to for it imo. Right now they need to conserve or even acquire picks to be dealt latet.
