Unavailable, most likely:
Jokiharju - Playing very well to start the season and the Sabres are very thin on RHD depth
Durzi - looks like he'll be a coyote for quite some time, Arizona won't be giving him up any time soon
Walsh - think he explicitly asked to be traded into the Bruins organization
Forbort - doing well with the Bruins and they wouldn't be interested in moving solid veterans out at this point in time
Grzelcyk - same as above
Chatfield - Canes wouldn't want to move him to their biggest in-division rival
Petry - Detroit are playing too well to be interested in trading him at this point in time
Gostisbehere - same as above
Addison - Very important for the Wild's cap situation and is playing pretty well so they aren't gonna move him
Roy - Top 4 RHD on a fringe contender, Kings aren't trading him
Cole - Canucks just got him in and is very important for their defensive depth, not getting traded unless closer to TDL
Martinez - love him but Vegas aren't gonna trade him unfortunately
DeMelo - Jets are doubling down on making the playoffs and wouldn't let him go unless they're out of it by TDL (which would be unlikely in my opinion, they're underrated)
Term, RFA rights and / or cap hit is an issue:
My top picks out of these would be Zadorov, Carrier, Schultz and Tanev. I think each of them would serve a clear role as a rental while also not being prohibitively expensive to acquire.
I do think that each of the 8 guys above would be worthwhile to look into trading for though, but I would also like to see Foote, Hatakka, Vilén and even Nemec get a few looks at the NHL level before anything actually goes down.
