The NHL trade deadline is less than 48 hours away, and every team is deep in negotiations to improve their teams for either the short term or long term. Two of those teams talking are the Buffalo Sabres and Los Angeles Kings.

According to Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period, the two teams are discussing a deal that would send Sabres forward Matt Moulson to Los Angeles. Bernstein states that Buffalo is demanding highly-touted prospect Tyler Toffoli as a return in the deal, but the Kings aren’t willing to go there unless Buffalo includes defenseman Christian Ehrhoff. LA would have to include Toffoli and more should the Sabres add Ehrhoff to any potential deal.

A deal doesn’t appear to be imminent, but the sides are definitely talking. The Kings want to add scoring as they push towards the playoffs, and Moulson would certainly add that to the roster.

The NHL trade deadline is 3pm on March 5.
