As it stated in Gabriel Landeskog, ColoradoLike Shattenkirk prior to Monday’s trade, Landeskog’s name has been linked to the Bruins for quite some time.
Come 3 p.m. on Wednesday, the NHL trade market will officially come to a close for the 2016-17 season.
A cheaper option compared to Shattenkirk, Smith may not have the same offensive tools as the St. Louis veteran, but he’d also be an upgrade to the blue-line.
Landeskog fits the mold of what the Bruins are looking for despite only having 26 points in 50 games.
Unlike previous years, however, this year’s trade deadline may stay stagnant as teams weigh their options of adding players for a playoff run, selling assets, or standing pat.
As it stated in Jeremy Roenick on how it feels to be dealt at NHL trade deadlineJeremy Roenick on how it feels to be dealt at NHL trade deadlineIt’s the time of year when NHL players can have their lives uprooted with a simple phone call, a feeling Oilers defenseman Eric Gryba and his wife Cate are familiar with.
While Gryba hasn’t been the subject of much trade talk around the deadline, that didn’t stop his wife, Cate, from thinking he was on the move on Monday night.
Eric was traded from Ottawa to Edmonton in 2015, just a month before the couple got engaged.
When your wife thinks you got traded but your not even on the radar… pic.twitter.com/afdZzMBgDS — Eric Gryba (@grybes02) February 28, 2017You have to wonder whether Cate was excited by the prospect of leaving Edmonton.
She reacted in the only way that makes sense—by sending a series of increasingly frantic texts.

Market dwindling ahead of Wednesday’s NHL trade deadline
(Photo: Tom Szczerbowski, USA TODAY Sports)Will there be anyone left to trade on Wednesday’s NHL trade deadline day?
Detroit Red Wings left wing Thomas Vanek during their game against the Toronto Maple Leafs during the Centennial Classic ice hockey game at BMO Field.
Some teams have also inquired about Riley Sheahan, although the Red Wings aren’t committed to moving him.
The Red Wings, resigned to missing the playoffs for the first time since 1990, have now moved Tomas Jurco and Smith, and they are expected to also trade Thomas Vanek and Steve Ott.
ET deadline is still more than 24 hours away, and many of the most sought-after rental players have already moved.
