The 2021 NHL trade deadline is Monday, April. 12 at 3 p.m. ET. There were a flurry of deals over the weekend, so let’s take a look at who’s left and who might be dealt before this afternoon. Mattias Ekholm , D, Predators (30 years old / signed through 2021-22 / $3.75M cap hit): As Juuse Saros keeps juicing the Predators’ win-loss record, defensemen like Ekholm keep slipping down various “trade bait” boards. It makes sense that the Predators might get cold feet about trading Ekholm, as he checks oh-so-many boxes. Blueliners as defensively adept as Ekholm simply don’t hit the market (trade or free agent) very often. When given the opportunity, Ekholm’s also revealed some offensive upside, too. Combine those skills with his bargain cap hit and the notion that you can get two playoff runs out of his current deal, and it’s easy to see why he’s so sought-after. And he might just end up too valuable for the Predators to trade. Rickard Rakell , LW, Ducks (27 years old / … [Read more...] about NHL Trade Deadline: Players who could be on the move Monday
We are less than 24 hours away from the NBA trade deadline, and the rumors are flying around as contending and playoff-bound teams look to solidify their rosters and fill holes, while the few sellers this season look to send out veterans and get picks and players that can help them in the long run.

3 Stars for Saturday in the NHL 1. Juuse Saros , Nashville Predators Everyone, slow-starting Juuse Saros has transformed into second-half Saros. Or something like that. For most of us, it was getting challenging to latch onto memories of Saros rebounding late in seasons during recent years. Through February (12 games), Saros was 5-5-0 with a troubling .898 save percentage. As much as the Predators wanted to let the 25-year-old take the torch from 38-year-old Pekka Rinne , they were running out of time. (And, depending upon how you read into drafting a goalie with their 2020 first-rounder , maybe they already were out of patience for Saros. To an extent.) Well, snooze-alarm Saros (can we get a verdict on a nickname for this quirk?*) woke up. After generating a tremendous .963 save percentage in March, Saros shook off a Thursday loss to pitch a 41-save shutout vs. the Blackhawks to earn the No. 1 star of Saturday in the NHL. While the Stars complicate the race for the … [Read more...] about The Buzzer: Surging Saros, Brady Tkachuk vs. Weber (Saturday in the NHL)
The County Championship returns on Thursday and Essex remain the team to beat but how are the other sides in Group 1 shaping up? ESSEX Overseas players: Peter Siddle (Australia), Simon Harmer (South Africa) Ins: None Outs: Rishi Patel (Leicestershire) Story of last season: For the second season running - and the third in the last four - Essex ended the campaign with a trophy in the cabinet. In domestic red-ball cricket, they are quite simply the team to beat and doing so is far easier said than done. In the strangest of summers last year, it was business as usual for Essex on the field; the Bob Willis Trophy replaced the County Championship and four wins and a draw in the South Group secured the Eagles their place in the Lord's final. Somerset pushed them close but, ultimately, a draw was enough to see Essex crowned champions, courtesy of their higher first-innings total. County Championship 2021: How it works What's changed? Not a huge amount, … [Read more...] about County Championship preview – Group 1: Can Essex make it three title wins in a row?
