Trades can only happen within the OHL. Getting a player from the NCAA or USHL could happen mid-season if a player the Whalers own the OHL rights to leaves that league, but it does not happen very often. The Whalers did get Robbie Czarnak mid-season when he quit the Unversity of Michigan a few years ago, but that was because he was not fitting in with college life, and is pretty rare.
I agree with Gowhalers that getting a goalie in a trade will be difficult. They need to find a team looking to rebuild that has a quality starting goalie to sell. That is never easy, and usually comes at a high price.
We are paying the price now for trading Patterson to Kitchener at the beginning of last season.
