With the trade deadline just days away, what will teams in the Atlantic division do?  There will be many different agendas facing GM’s from now until Wednesday.  Some will be sellers, others buyers and still others could do a little of both.  There aren’t usually many blockbusters on trade deadline day, with most of the deals involving rental players who will be unrestricted free agents in the summer.

But, with the trade season essentially kicked off when Buffalo dealt Ryan Miller and Steve Ott to St. Louis for Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart, a prospect and draft picks, expect things to heat up fairly soon.
