As the clock winds down to the NHL's Feb. 28, 3 p.m. EST trade deadline, some Stanley Cup contenders have already hit the market, picking up pieces they hope will bolster their playoff success. In the next several days, top teams will continue to shop, while those out of the hunt look to build for next year. We asked 20 players from eight NHL teams how they feel about deadline day. Once again, we promised anonymity, and they promised the truth.


To see the answers to our player poll, including which teams are the most and least desirable destinations, and whether anyone wants to see a teammate shipped out, you must be an ESPN Insider.
