On the Defenseman and Goaltender Trade Market …

Dan Rosen of NHL.com: Defensemen and goaltenders that could be traded by the trade deadline and three possible landing spots.

Mike Green – Washington Capitals, Toronto Maple Leafs, Anaheim Ducks

Erik Gudbranson – Toronto Maple Leafs, Anaheim Ducks, New York Islanders

Nick Holden – Vegas Golden Knights, Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Avalanche

Jack Johnson – Toronto Maple Leafs, Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings

Ryan McDonagh – Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins

Robin Lehner – Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Islanders, Arizona Coyotes

Petr Mrazek – Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Islanders, Arizona Coyotes

Craig Custance of The Athletic: Looking at the top defensemen and goaltenders that could be traded by the deadline, with a few notes on each.

Mike Green – Only available defenseman on the list that can be a game changer. An ideal third-pairing defenseman that can play on the power play. Would be a good fit for the Lightning, though they may try for Ryan McDonagh first.

Jack Johnson – Pierre LeBrun reported the Blue Jackets might be able to get a late first-round pick for him.

Ian Cole – One source is saying it would be a surprise if the Penguins moved Cole. Would be a good depth addition for someone if the Pens moved him.

Erik Gudbranson – Canucks and Gudbranson could look to get a long-term deal done. Teams are looking for size and edge for their blue line.

Petr Mrazek – Likely wouldn’t get qualified at over $4 million a season. The goalie market is pretty quiet.
