Could the OP, like, list some of the prominent names discussed? Kind of defeats the purpose of making a thread if I have to go to a link just to find out what was mentioned.

Incredibly lazy tread.
Here's the top 20:
8. Leafs top prospects
12. Chicago's cap space
17. R. Murray
18. B. Ryan
19. C. Miller
Didn't see Ullmark there. Shouldn't he be on this list?
From the Nashville perspective it makes no sense whatsoever to still have Ekholm on the list at all. It made very little sense a month ago, but zero sense now. Even Granlund is almost certainly not going to get traded now.
Seems weird to me that they'd put Driedger on the list too. Who is going to trade so much for him that Florida wouldn't just keep him for the playoffs, even if they end up being unable to afford to sign him next year?
I'd be interested in Dzingel. Maybe something around Kassian + Benson/Caleb Jones? I'd imagine Ott can eat that cap for a few years and get a guy ready to make the jump next year to grow with their young core.
Florida going after Ekholm would make sense honestly.
Haula doesn't even crack the top 35 over the likes of Marc Staal & TDA.
lol d'angelo... nobody will take that guy
8. Leafs top prospects
** steam coming out the ears of Leaf fans here **
They aren't getting traded.
Seems a bit like Toronto pandering media, I am guessing many teams have prospects up for grabs why mention the leafs only
It’s comically lazy. ‘Gotta include the Leafs potentially making a big move, let’s just toss top prospect in there’
Nashville has a chance for 4th, they might not be inclined to move him to someone they may have in the 1st round
Foligno will be a huge pickup.
Doubtful Ekholm is moved now, Nashville is currently vying for a playoff spot. Plus he wont be cheap.
Just shows you how bad this deadline will be...
I expect low prices and very little action all around...
Seems like Poile is listening in case anybody wants to make a desperate overpay, but will be content to keep him otherwise. There's really nothing forcing him to trade Ekholm at any point before his contract expires.
Zads to Winnipeg please
Not if the Sabres are re-signing him
Toronto’s top prospect. Way to be specific Frank.
Blues look like sellers to me
Yup they're definitely looking like sellers right now.
They don’t have much value. Maybe Robertson.
Separate names with a comma.
