While the NHL trade deadline generally lacks the intrigue of its NBA counterpart, the 2019 deadline is still shaping up to be one of the very active coping phases in years. Sportsbooks are getting in on the fun by offering odds on the transaction bait that may be changing addresses at the foreseeable future.
BetOnline has released prop specials for five commerce applicants: Artemi Panarin, Sergei Bobrovsky, Dougie Hamilton, Mark Stone and Matt Duchene. Following is a look at the chance of every man getting dealt before the deadline on February 25.
Panarin and Bobrovsky
Due to the impending unrestricted free service of Panarin and Bobrovsky, pretty much everybody and their dog in Columbus knew this was likely to become a make-or-break year for the Blue Jackets. With both Russians showing little to no interest in returning to the Jackets, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Columbus ship at least among these from town though the Blue Jackets possess a 33-23-3 SU record at February 20.
The Blue Jackets will probably be expecting a big haul for Panarin, who has 67 points in 56 games this year. The Avalanche, Islanders, Panthers, Predators and Sharks are the likeliest suitors for the winger. Bobrovsky has fought in his contract year, but a change of scenery could help the goaltender bounce back into his all-star caliber. From both, Panarin is your much bigger trade target.
Duchene and Stone
Pretty much everything that could’ve gone wrong went wrong to the Ottawa Senators in the last calendar year, and they currently own the team’s worst album (22-32-5) as a result. The Duchene trade with Colorado is looking like one of the more lopsided trades in recent history, as the Avs possess the Sens’ first-round pick in the upcoming draft. Unless Duchene is re-signed before the trade deadline, then he’ll be on a new team for the stretch run of this effort.
Stone has been using the Senators organization since getting chosen in the sixth round of their 2010 NHL Entry Draft, however his time with the club will soon be coming to an end. Recent reports suggest Stone has a better chance to re-sign with the Senators than Duchene, but because of the seemingly constant chaos in Ottawa, no one would blame him when he opted to sign with a different squad in the summertime. If the Senators can not re-up him at the forthcoming weeks, he could bring a nice return.
A Boston Bruins draft choice in the 2011 draft, Hamilton is already on his third NHL team in his seventh year in the professionals. The Carolina Hurricanes are deep on the blue line but lack scoring punch up front, and Hamilton is the only defenseman on the roster who’s signed beyond this season.
There is no shortage of teams lacking defensive depth around the globe, so it would not be a shock if Hamilton is sent away for a forward before February 25.
