3. Jaroslav Halak
If I had made this list a few weeks ago, Jaroslav Halak would have likely not been one of the three trade candidates discussed.
The recent performances from 3rd goalie Spencer Martin during the COVID-19 outbreak in the goalie room could make Halak expendable at the deadline.
The 36- year-old Slovakian goalie can still give a team big performances in between the pipes. However, given his age and contract situation he’s likely not a part of the team’s long-term future.
Trading the goalie at the deadline for literally any asset and letting Martin take over the role of backup net minder is smart roster management, and would serve the team better in the long run.
