The NHL offseason is officially off and running, and the trade stoves are burning hot. There are many trade candidates on the market, but one who may or may not be available is forward Anthony Duclair of the Florida Panthers.

Duclair, 28, was excellent for the President's Trophy-winning Panthers last season, as he had 31 goals and 58 points in 74 regular season games. He then missed most of this season with injury but returned at the end to score two goals and nine points in 20 games. Even if he didn't light up the stat sheet, Duclair's presence alone was huge for Florida's late-season surge. In the playoffs, he scored four goals and seven assists during the Panthers' surprise run to the Stanley Cup Final.

After the Panthers' playoff run, whether or not Duclair is on the market is questionable. There were plenty of rumors before he made his return this season as the Panthers were right up against the salary cap. Now, though, those rumors have quieted substantially. They aren't fully gone, but there is much less buzz than there was a few months ago.

Still, there is a chance Duclair could move this offseason. So, let's take a stab at picking where he could go in a potential deal.


3. Edmonton Oilers

After another early playoff exit, this time to the Vegas Golden Knights in the second round, the Oilers are asking the same old questions. They have two of the NHL's best players in Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, but still haven't been able to get over the postseason hump. Now, they're once again facing the question of how to better support their two superstars.
