The Athletico counts down 20 players that could be on the move:

https://t.co/X4MZ3Xz1gy

Big names: Panarin, Simmonds, Hamilton (already!), Nyqvist, Nino, all the Senators, all the Rangers, all the Blues, all the Wings.

With more cap space available than usual and a number of sellers, we could see a lot of moves coming. A few teams also ready for old-time full-on teardowns.

What...the ever-lovin' fuck...is wrong with Dougie if indeed Carolina is already looking to move him!?

The idea of Edmonton dealing Pulju is just hilarious. They desperately need young, cheap offense. Fix it you idiots.

Nyquist with McDavid would be glorious but I don't wish that on him. Like Tatar, sad to see him go but it must be done.

Yes to Daley. I thought that they should have dealt him last year but bad optics to deal him after year 1 of a 3-year deal(unless they had an understanding it could happen).

Yes to Jensen. Great skater but 28 and time to play the kids. Might have some value so get it.

Yes to Jimmy and bring him back at the end of the season if he wants to.

If Kronwall wants to go to a contender, good with me. Also good if he wants to stay.

Daley's injury might keep him on the shelf till the deadline, no?

Looks like 3-5 weeks so yeah it could potentially go that long but hopefully not.

I like Alex Pietrangelo but his 6.5 is a problem.

Seems like a good price for a no. 1 defenceman, but I'd imagine he's the one untouchable they have. Even Tarasenko is on the block.

Friedman did a round table discussion on NHL Network and thought the Jackets should go for it this year and damn the torpedoes. I think that would be a mistake. They're a "good" team, but they're not a legit contender. It's not enough to say "hey, make the playoffs and anything could happen!" No, you gotta be loaded for bear, and the Jackets currently aren't.

West is ripe for a push, but the East has the last two cup winners and Tampa in the way so would not go all in there this season.

The old adage is anything can happen once you reach the playoffs, but I'm not so sure it applies the way it used to. Even Vegas dominated all season before reaching the finals.

In the east, are you really knocking off two of Tampa, Toronto, Boston, Washington or Pittsburgh?

In the west, same goes for Winnipeg, Nashville, Calgary, San Jose and Vegas.

That generously leaves 10 teams that should earnestly go for it and 20 that shouldn't bet the farm.

If you don't go for it, how would you possibly knock any of those teams off?
I agree, beating any 2 of them would be a seriously tall order, but if you go into those series without having added pieces, you're creating a self-fulfilling prophecy of not being able to beat both of them. That makes sense in my head. Not sure it does here.

Out of the race in the East: Red Wings, Panthers, Senators, Rangers, Devils, Flyers

The West, especially the Smythe, is a complete mess.

Mind boggling how many truly abhorrent GMs will have carte blanche to ruin their teams even further (Murray, Chiarelli, Benning, Sweeney, etc.) come deadline time. Of those guys, I think Murray will probably make some decent moves, but the rest of those guys, yikes.

My eyes will be on Lumbus. No GM has tougher decisions to make than Jarmo.
