Centers who could hit the NHL trade market


There are still a number of NHL free agents out there looking for teams but when it comes to centers, the cupboard looks pretty bare. Could things improve at the NHL trade deadline?

Our Dan Kingerski of PittsburghHockeyNow.com looks ahead to a potential need in Pittsburgh and breaks down which centers could be available for trade when the deadline comes around.

Right now, Kingerski is only targeting rental players whom the Penguins could potentially have interest in bringing in.

The center position, of course, is one of strength for the Florida Panthers.

Florida will go into camp with Sasha Barkov centering its top line with Sam Reinhart likely on right wing although he showed last season in Buffalo that he could do some damage centering a line.

The Panthers also have Sam Bennett, Joe Thornton, rookie Anton Lundell, Noel Acciari, Eetu Luostarinen, Juho Lammikko … the list goes on and on.

Simply put, the Panthers have a lot of centers.

But, GM Bill Zito is always looking so if Florida were to lose a player or two to injury, some of these names could draw interest from Sunrise as well.
