2019 NHL Trade Deadline Odds: Who’s Going to Be Dealt?

Artemi Panarin #9 of the Columbus Blue Jackets and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky #72 of the Columbus Blue Jackets chat before the start of a game against the Carolina Hurricanes on October 5, 2018 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

While the NHL trade deadline usually lacks the intrigue of its NBA counterpart, the 2019 deadline is shaping up to be one of the most active dealing periods in years. Sportsbooks are getting in on the fun by offering odds on the trade bait that could be changing addresses in the not-too-distant future.

Bovada has released prop specials for five trade candidates: Artemi Panarin, Sergei Bobrovsky, Dougie Hamilton, Mark Stone and Matt Duchene. Here’s a look at the likelihood of each man getting dealt before the deadline on February 25.

Panarin and Bobrovsky

Due to the impending unrestricted free agency of Panarin and Bobrovsky, pretty much everyone and their dog in Columbus knew this was going to be a make-or-break year for the Blue Jackets. With both Russians showing little to no interest in returning to the Jackets, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Columbus ship at least one of them out of town even though the Blue Jackets possess a 33-23-3 SU record as of February 20.

The Blue Jackets will be expecting a big haul for Panarin, who has 67 points in 56 games this season. The Avalanche, Islanders, Panthers, Predators and Sharks are the likeliest suitors for the winger. Bobrovsky has struggled in his contract year, but a change of scenery could help the goaltender bounce back to his all-star caliber. Out of the two, Panarin is the much bigger trade target.

Duchene and Stone

Pretty much everything that could’ve gone wrong went wrong for the Ottawa Senators in the last year, and they currently own the league’s worst record (22-32-5) as a result. The Duchene trade with Colorado is looking like one of the more lopsided transactions in recent history, as the Avs own the Sens’ first-round pick in the upcoming draft. Unless Duchene is re-signed before the trade deadline, he’ll be on a new team for the stretch run of the campaign.

Stone has been with the Senators organization since getting selected in the sixth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, yet his time with the club could soon be coming to an end. Recent reports suggest Stone has a better chance to re-sign with the Senators than Duchene, but due to the seemingly constant turmoil in Ottawa, no one would blame him if he chose to sign with another squad in the summer. If the Senators can’t re-up him in the coming weeks, he could fetch a nice return.

Hamilton

A Boston Bruins draft pick in the 2011 draft, Hamilton is already on his third NHL team in his seventh year in the pros. The Carolina Hurricanes are deep on the blue line but lack scoring punch up front, and Hamilton is the only defenseman on the roster who’s signed beyond this season.

There’s no shortage of teams lacking defensive depth around the league, so it wouldn’t be a shock if Hamilton is shipped away for a forward before February 25.
