If it's trade rumors you're after, this is a remarkably weak season for them. With about 20 teams in at least theoretical contention, almost nobody is selling, and almost no club is in a position where fixing one weak position will vault that team over their division rivals. With only six days left until the trade deadline (after which players are required to clear waivers), the list of likelies is shrinking faster than the willies of polar bear club members.
