Trades.

If you ask fans across the spectrum what excites them the most about the NHL, the answer will generally revolve around either trades or the possibility of them.

Needless to say, the in-season trend in this league in recent campaigns has seen a dearth of meaningful swaps, with most of the significant trades coming in the off-season.
