Unofficial Trade Deadline?

Alright, if this was an 82 game season, the trade deadline would be right around this time.

With the trade deadline being April 3rd, and the season ending on the 27th. Does anyone see teams making their deadline acquisitions in the next couple weeks rather than April 3rd? We've already seen a couple trades.

To get players in house earlier so they can adjust enough before a playoff run? I don't know, just my thinking.

Teams are looking right now and of course they want players to be acclimated to their new teams before the playoffs begin. The problem is that the season isn't half over and all the teams still have a chance to make the playoffs. It's a sellers market and, ATM, no one is in a selling mode. Another problem is the cap going down next season, so the players that may be available right now, their contracts may make them not all that appealing (to take a chance on).
Teams may be willing to 'give up' sooner with the prospect of getting a top draft pick in this year's draft, so I wouldn't be surprise if teams go into a selling mode before they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Columbus may be the 1st, but only Letestu and Prospal will be UFA's (Anisimov may be available, if the BJ's have their sight on 1 of the centers in the draft, but I think they'll have their sights on Seth Jones).

Last place is 6 to 8 points out of 8th place. We have no sellers yet. No one is trading for picks yet.

I think we'll see a flurry of moves 2 weeks before and including the the days leading up to the deadline. Some teams are gonna want guys getting acclimated to their new teams earlier and some teams will wait till the deadline to determine whether or not they are sellers.

I definitely see the Canes acquiring another depth dman in the next couple weeks or so here, but not entirely sure it'll be a deadline addition type pickup as much as a "balancing the blueline" type pickup. Hard to make things work with 4 offensive D and 2 defensive D, even when 2 of the offensive guys are Pitkanen and Faulk.
