Evaluating all 31 NHL teams' trade deadline agendas


With the trade deadline looming, here's an ultra-preliminary look at potential transactions from a fantasy standpoint. While a lot can change between now and Feb. 26, this rough and speculative assessment pegs all 31 NHL clubs as buyers, sellers or other/undecided.
Note: "Undetermined" also covers a team's possible leaning towards standing pat.
Anaheim Ducks: Undetermined
If anything, a minor move with little fantasy influence might be in the cards for GM Bob Murray as his club grapples to claim a playoff spot. Having a healthy John Gibson back in net and a rejuvenated Corey Perry producing alongside top-linemate Ryan Getzlaf would sub in nicely for a pre-deadline trade, without having to give anything up. Perry has two goals and four assists in his past three contests, and Gibson, still dealing with a lower-body injury, isn't expected to miss much more time.
Arizona Coyotes: Sellers
Don't rule out Oliver Ekman-Larsson moving this month. If offered the right return, the Coyotes may pull the trigger now, instead of after the regular season. If they do at all, that is. The defenseman could still look to re-sign with the club past 2018-19. But a move just about anywhere else would instantly inflate the top-tier blueliner's fantasy value, beginning with his dreadful minus-40 rating. Veteran Alex Goligoski would be left to manage the No. 1 power play back in the desert.
