NHL Trade Bait Tracker: March 21, 2021

March 21: This update adds the names PK Subban and Johnny Gaudreau to the mix. The Devils are said to be sellers at this deadline and Subban’s name is resurfacing again. He has no protection against a trade and with the Blackhawks eager to help teams with cap trouble Subban could be moved. Either that or he’s heading for exposure in the expansion draft. The Flames Johnny Gaudreau is being talked about again with the Flyers being the destination. Will he be traded is the question. Also included updates to trade destinations for Jonathan Quick and the latest news available for some of the players on the list.
