Alexandar Georgiev moves up the NHL Trade Bait Tracker board; Eichel remains at the top

There’s been plenty of offseason movement, with a few big pieces expected to be elsewhere before the season starts. The NHL Trade Bait Tracker has been updated to reflect all changes post NHL Draft and Free Agency.

There’s still plenty of buzz around some players, however the biggest trade piece has yet to be moved in Jack Eichel. Right behind the Sabres disgruntled center is Vladimir Tarasenko, who was told by the Blues to prepare as if he’s coming back to St. Louis.

Also moving up the board is Rangers goaltender, Alexandar Georgiev. Despite his agent refuting his desires to be traded, rumors persist that he’s likely to be on the go.

Here’s the list of top names still out there. We will continually provide updates until the season starts.
