NHL teams have until April 3 to determine what they need to do in order to prepare their franchise for a shot at the Stanley Cup.
Some teams will be buyers, adding key players to the roster in an attempt to give themselves the best chance to win this year. Others will be sellers, trying to trade impending free agents to build for the future.
Many teams could benefit from making moves at the trade deadline but not all will. Some teams have glaring weaknesses or soon-to-be-departed players that should motivate GMs to make a transaction, but selling a player can be selling the whole season.
Likewise, contenders run the risk of weakening depth in one area to add it in another.
These 10 teams should make a move at the trade deadline, either to add a key player in a needed area or to get value for a free agent, but they will likely be quiet at trade time.
