While the NHL trade deadline generally lacks the intrigue of its NBA counterpart, the 2019 deadline is still shaping up to become one of the very active coping phases in years. Sportsbooks are getting in on the fun by offering odds on the transaction bait that could be changing addresses at the foreseeable future.
BetOnline has released prop specials for five trade candidates: Artemi Panarin, Sergei Bobrovsky, Dougie Hamilton, Mark Stone and Matt Duchene. Following is a look at the chance of each man getting dealt prior to the deadline on February 25.
Panarin and Bobrovsky
As a result of impending unrestricted free agency of Panarin and Bobrovsky, pretty much everyone and their dog in Columbus knew this was going to become a make-or-break year to the Blue Jackets. With both Russians showing little to no interest in returning to the Jackets, it would not be surprising to watch Columbus ship at least one of these out of town even though the Blue Jackets possess a 33-23-3 SU record at February 20.
The Blue Jackets will probably be expecting a major haul for Panarin, who has 67 points in 56 games this year. The Avalanche, Islanders, Panthers, Predators and Sharks would be the likeliest suitors for the winger. Bobrovsky has struggled in his contract , but a change of scenery could assist the goaltender bounce straight back to his own all-star caliber. Out of the two, Panarin is your considerably bigger trade target.
Duchene and Stone
Pretty much everything that could’ve gone wrong went wrong for the Ottawa Senators in the previous calendar year, and they currently have the league’s worst record (22-32-5) as a outcome. The Duchene trade with Colorado is looking like one of the more lopsided trades in recent history, as the Avs own 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 campaign.
Stone continues to be with the Senators organization since getting selected in the sixth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, however his time with the team will soon be coming to an end. Recent reports suggest Stone has a better chance to re-sign together with all the Senators than Duchene, but due to the seemingly constant chaos in Ottawa, no one would blame him if he opted to sign with a different squad in the summertime. If the Senators can’t re-up him at the forthcoming months, then he could bring a nice return.
A Boston Bruins draft pick in the 2011 draft, Hamilton is currently on his third NHL team in his seventh year at 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 this season.
There’s no lack of teams lacking defensive thickness around the globe, so it would not be a shock if Hamilton is shipped away for a forward before February 25.
