The National Hockey League usually has a very good trade deadline in terms of fan entertainment. There are a lot of players that pack their things and move during this period.
2023-24 is probably going to be no different in terms of movement but there is extra stress on one position this year. There may be a lot of goalies that are traded by the time that deadline comes.
There are a lot of teams that need to add a net-minder if they are going to have any chance of making the playoffs let alone winning in the playoffs.
Out of all the goalies that could be on the move, these are the three that could be headed out the door quickly:
Jacob Markstrom of the Calgary Flames could be traded if he is healthy
Jacob Markstrom is considered day-to-day right now because of an injury but he is someone that could be on his way out of the Calgary Flames organization soon.
We know that Kevin Weekes likes to be somewhat cryptic on Twitter at times but he usually has good information. He wouldn't have tweeted a picture of Markstrom with an eyeball emoji if he didn't hear from a good source that there was a chance he's moved.
Being out with an injury may complicate things for the Flames if they are indeed trying to move him but he would be so worth it for a potential playoff team to add.
So far this season, he is 13-11-2 with a 2.59 goals against average and a .912 save percentage. The fact that is record is as mediocre as that with these insane stats tells you how bad the Calgary Flames have been. They'd be very wise to get assets for him now.
