Eric Staal’s no-trade list ‘vastly populated’ with contenders

The Score

Eric Staal has a 10-team no-trade list in his contract, and he's taking full advantage of it.

The Minnesota Wild forward is an unrestricted free agent after this season, but his no-trade list is "vastly populated with all the obvious contenders," TSN's Pierre LeBrun said on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading."

Without a contract beyond this season, non-contenders won't be looking to acquire Staal, giving Wild general manager Paul Fenton limited options if he chooses to shop the veteran forward ahead of the Feb. 25 trade deadline.

Earlier Thursday, The Athletic's Michael Russo reported that Fenton was given the green light to trade members of the team's core, including Charlie Coyle, Mikael Granlund, Jason Zucker, and Jonas Brodin, even if it means ultimately missing the postseason.
