The Calgary Flames made the first big move of trade deadline season, snapping up Tyler Toffoli from the Montreal Canadiens on Monday.

Who’s next?

With less than five weeks to go until the March 21 deadline, here are 25 names in play on Daily Faceoff’s Trade Targets list:

1. Claude Giroux

Scoop: Giroux holds the cards with a full no-move clause, but all involved seem resigned to the fact that his impressive tenure in Philadelphia is nearing a conclusion. The Flyers are working with Giroux’s representation, Pat Brisson of CAA Sports, to help find a spot to chase Lord Stanley this season. Given his versatility at either the center or wing position, clockwork-like production and intangibles and there is a reason why Giroux is the new No. 1 on the Trade Target board: He is the best player available at the deadline who is almost assuredly going to be on the move.


2. Ben Chiarot

Scoop: Canadiens GM Kent Hughes sent a not-so-subtle message on Wednesday. If you want Chiarot, step up and get him. Because Hughes said the Canadiens “won’t wait for the market” in order to move the in-demand defenseman, who was injured on Saturday. He’s not expected to be out long, but that doesn’t mean the Habs have any interest in plugging him back into the lineup right away. There’s a chance he’s played his last game as a Canadien. There is hardly a Cup contending team Chiarot would not improve; Chiarot is a minute-chewing, dependable defenseman who is also incredibly well-liked in locker rooms.


3. Tomas Hertl

Scoop: Acting Sharks GM Joe Will did not mince words last week when he said that San Jose would like to keep Hertl. It’s just that Hertl didn’t sound as convincing that he actually wanted to remain in the Bay Area when it was his turn to answer the same questions. There is real doubt as to whether the Sharks, who know Hertl better than anyone, are willing to pony both the term and the dollars to keep him. He’s having a fantastic season, still on pace for a career-high 39 goals and leads the Sharks with 22 strikes. He would provide a significant return for the Sharks’ future, a necessary component for a team en route to a third straight season in lottery territory.


4. Brandon Hagel

Scoop: If you’re looking for this year’s version of a Blake Coleman or Barclay Goodrow addition, look no further than Hagel, who has generated significant interest in Chicago. Provided that the Blackhawks’ high price is met, he’s a good bet to move (subject, of course, to the opinion of Chicago’s next GM). At least four teams are known to have engaged in conversation on Hagel: Florida, Toronto, New Jersey and Calgary. The Flames likely moved on to Toffoli; the Maple Leafs are focused on defense. But Hagel’s contract and cost certainty is making teams drool. He is in first-round pick plus top prospect territory, which is understandable given the contract, his production and style of play.


5. Jakob Chychrun

Scoop: It’s been rather quiet on the Chychrun front in the last week or so. His name has been out there for a while since first percolating in December. There was no shortage of interest in Chychrun, with so many teams reaching out that two assumptions could be made: either no one was ready and willing to pay the Coyotes’ price, or Arizona isn’t really that keen on trading Chychrun. The latter would make more sense. He was GM Bill Armstrong’s only ‘untouchable’ last season, coming off an 18-goal campaign as a defenseman in a shortened season. If Chychrun is gone, especially for more futures, it becomes difficult to imagine what Arizona would have to build around in future years. That’s also why the reported ask from Arizona has also been high.


6. Brock Boeser

Scoop: Trade chatter surrounding Boeser has grown louder in the last number of days as the Canucks’ newly assembled regime settles in ahead of the deadline. With 10 goals in 21 games, no Canuck has benefitted more than Boeser from Bruce Boudreau being behind the bench in Vancouver. Keep in mind: Jim Rutherford has repeatedly stressed that creating salary cap flexibility is key. There are other roster players that can achieve space and freedom, but there is a sense the Canucks are not sold Boeser’s play will be commensurate with the large qualifying offer due to him this summer, which makes him a prime candidate to move. It’s entirely possible that J.T. Miller, who is much more of a driver than Boeser, remains in Vancouver and Boeser is on his way to a new team. Could New Jersey be a fit for Boeser?
