The NHL trade deadline is fast approaching and teams have until March 5th to make deals. Trades can be made from now up until February 7th, as that is when the NHL freezes all trade activity for the duration of the Winter Olympics. But in the meantime, one name that many are expecting to hear more and more about as both deadlines near, is Buffalo Sabres veteran Matt Moulson.
Out of the two, Los Angeles is the team most likely to land Moulson as they have the money to make it happen as well as a dire need for production out of their left wingers. Ottawa has started making it known they’d like to acquire veteran skaters, but the Sun reports Moulson’s contract and his unrestricted free agent status at the end of the season could scare them off.
Don’t expect the Sabres to just give Moulson away though, as the Ottawa Sun reports the asking price for Moulson will be considerable.
