The New Jersey Devils are looking like they might be sellers at this deadline. That would be a shock at the beginning of the season but it is the reality of the situation.

They are still in a very nice position going forward as long as they can figure out their long-term coaching situation in addition to their long-term goaltending situation.

One player that could be on his way out, however, is Tyler Toffoli. He is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and teams want him.

High-end scoring forwards have been going for a lot this year and New Jersey might be wise to take advantage. This is a lost season but it doesn't have to all be for not.

Right now, Toffoli has 26 goals and 18 assists for 44 points in 61 games. It isn't like he is this big-time playmaker but he has the ability to score lots of goals in bunches. Many teams would want that.

If New Jersey did trade Toffoli, these are the three teams that would be most interested:

Seeing Tyler Toffoli on the Vegas Golden Knights would make a lot of sense

The Vegas Golden Knights have to be mentioned with anyone on the trade block these days. That team is literally in on everyone.

Vegas traded for Calgary Flames defenseman Noah Hanifin on Wednesday night but left themselves a few first round picks to work with. Now, if they wanted to add a forward that can score goals, they have the assets needed to do so.

No team is obsessed with winning more than the Golden Knights and they've proven it. With Mark Stone on LTIR, they can afford one more player with salary retained. If they strike out on Jake Guentzel, they could come calling for Toffoli.
