Islanders Trade Deadline Preview

The NHL trade deadline is scheduled for March 5th, just a few days shy from officially being one month away. Typically, that would leave for plenty of hockey to be played between now and then, but that isn't the case this year with the Winter Olympics coming up in just a little over a week.

In fact, there are only seven NHL games to be played between now and then.

They currently hold a 21-28-8 record that is good for 50 points and 14th in the Eastern Conference. They are also 10 points away from the eighth placed Philadelphia Flyers.

With the Islanders having lost their last five games in a row, all signs point to this team becoming sellers at the deadline.
