Sportsnet: Just because the NHL Trade Deadline has passed doesn’t restrict Jonathan Drouin from being dealt during what’s left of the 2015-16 campaign, and it may actually land GM Steve Yzerman a better haul if he’s negotiating with a non-playoff-bound rival. If players acquired in post-deadline trades they are not eligible for the playoffs. The Philadelphia Flyers, Ottawa Senators will have interest in making a trade. The Anaheim Ducks tried really hard to land Drouin at the trade deadline.
