  Making sense of the 2018 NHL Trade Deadline: Who is selling and what do they have? <p>If Gary Bettman has killed tanking, then who sells off at the deadline?</p>Every year at trade deadline time in the NHL, we like to talk about buyers and sellers as if it’s that simple. It’s not quite that cut and dried, and sometimes teams move players out as the same time as they move others in, but to score a really sweet deal, you need someone to be selling off more than their pending UFAs.

Reports: Kings land Phaneuf in 4 - player trade . Los Angeles Kings . 14m. Seattle makes official application for NHL team. The Los Angeles Kings have agreed to acquire veteran defenseman Dion Phaneuf in a four - player trade Tuesday night with the Ottawa Senators, according to multiple reports.

"Dion brings to our club a great deal of experience and leadership. He also plays with a physical edge which complements our line-up well. Nate has a good reputation of being a high-energy player on the ice. Both guys are also high character guys," Kings Vice President and General Manager Rob Blake said Tuesday.

Gaborik, 35, is also a three-time All-Star, but he has slowed down significantly in the last few years with just seven goals and seven assists in 29 games this season. Shore has four goals and 11 assists.

In trading Phaneuf, Ottawa saves money even though they inherit Gaborik's contract ($11 million remaining over three years).
