As the Feb. 27 NHL trade deadline nears, here are 15 of the biggest and most intriguing names that have been in the rumor mill.

That said, with the Blue Jackets in need of a total rebuild, Rick Nash, the franchise's cornerstone and captain, is said to be unhappy and willing to accept a trade. The Kings and Rangers are reportedly interested in the six-time 30-goal and two-time 40-goal scorer, but Nash's $7.8 million salary cap hit will make him a challenge to fit.
