Reinhart joins Kane and Lehner on TSN Top 30 Trade Bait list

January 25, 2018

While Evander Kane is once again at the top of TSN’s list of the 30 most likely trade candidates, Sam Reinhart is the newest Sabre to make an appearance.

Reinhart comes in ranked 25th, ahead of Robin Lehner, who was on last week’s list and this week is slotted 28th.

There were recently reports that Reinhart wasn’t likely to be dealt before the deadline, but these are often fluid situations that can change very quickly when GM’s start seriously tossing names around.

An interesting name to keep an eye on is Blues forward Jordan Kyrou, who is ranked 13th. The talented prospect has been mentioned as possibly being discussed in dealings between the Blues and Sabres for Evander Kane.

The Blues are in the market for an impact winger ahead of the Feb. 26 trade deadline. If they were to pursue a player like Buffalo’s Evander Kane, who remains No. 1 on the board and a potential strong fit, it’s possible that Kyrou could be part of some sort of package to make that happen.

St. Louis currently has Jaden Schwartz, Vladimir Sobotka, Ivan Barbashev and Dmitrij Jaskin playing left wing.

The NHL Trade deadline is February 26th.
