NHL trade deadline 2018: Five teams to watch | USA Today
"You can never count out GM David Poile, even as this team appears stronger than the one that made it to the Stanley Cup Final last year. There is no glaring hole, though their offense ranks eighth and could use an upgrade on the wing in their top nine. It’s hard to not see Poile taking advantage of a supply surplus. Patrick Maroon could give them a nice blend of size, toughness and skill at a $2 million cap hit."

Patrick Maroon would be a nice rental that we should be able to get at a fairly reasonable price.
