On occasion it does happen. Did anyone discuss the Moore, Mara, Sopel/Dawes, Gomez deals? Not that I can recall. Not even the non mainstream guys.

Even on free agent day every player signed was a suprise and wasn't "rumored" days before.

MTL usually comes out of nowhere with trades and it's usually guys that no one has even thought was on the trade market.
