Blog: Welcome To The Trade Deadline Season

View From Section 317's picture

Welcome to the second half of the NHL hockey season folks! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, but there is a new season upon us. It’s called the NHL trade deadline. For me, the trade deadline season begins usually after the World Junior Championships and lasts up until the actual trade deadline date which is February 26th. This is also where you’ll start to begin to see teams fall our of the playoff race (if they haven’t already) and that’s when you see the free agents of those teams being thrown into the rumor mill. So before I get into the Isles, I wanted to show you the pro-rated standings of the Eastern Conference as of January 11, 2018 or roughly 43 games in for most teams.

1. Tampa 31-9-3 124 point pace
2. Caps 27-13-3 109
3. Bruins 23-10-7 109
4. Devils 22-11-8 104
5. Columbus 25-16-3 99
6. Leafs 25-17-3 97
7. Rangers 22-15-5 96
8. Carolina 19-15-8 90
