Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Who will be this year's Marian Gaborik and Martin St. Louis?

That's one of several interesting and as yet unanswered questions with the 2015 NHL Trade Deadline approaching March 2 at 3 p.m. ET. That is two weeks away. Before the flurry of deadline deals, let's take a look back at what transpired leading up to the 2014 NHL Trade Deadline.

The Los Angeles Kings acquired Gaborik on deadline day last year; the right wing led the NHL with 14 goals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and helped the Kings with their second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons.

The New York Rangers acquired St. Louis on deadline day last year; the right wing helped them reach the Stanley Cup Final with 15 points in 25 playoff games, including the overtime winner in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. He was also an inspiration for playing after the death of his mother during the second-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Predators add Franson, Santorelli for playoff push

Sunday, 02.15.2015 / 8:11 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Robby Stanley - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators have never gotten past the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They want to change that this year.

The Predators, who lead the overall NHL standings entering the final third of the season, acquired defenseman Cody Franson and forward Mike Santorelli from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday for forward Olli Jokinen, forward prospect Brendan Leipsic and a first-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

It's a return to Nashville for both players. Franson was drafted by the Predators in the third round (No. 78) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Santorelli was selected by the Predators in the sixth round (No. 178) a year earlier.

Trade with Predators could signal Maple Leafs rebuild

Sunday, 02.15.2015 / 1:52 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Mike Brophy - NHL.com Correspondent

TORONTO – By trading veterans Cody Franson and Mike Santorelli the Toronto Maple Leafs may have indicated they're willing to commence on a full-scale rebuild, and it could take a while.

The Maple Leafs traded Franson, 27, and Santorelli, 29, to the Nashville Predators on Sunday for Nashville's first-round pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft along with forwards Brendan Leipsic and Olli Jokinen. Franson and Santorelli are both impending unrestricted free agents.

Toronto general manager Dave Nonis was asked if the trade is the first of many to come before the March 2 deadline. He said not necessarily.

"We're going to make moves whenever they come about if we feel they can help us," Nonis said. "Whether or not there are a lot more between now and the deadline I really couldn't say. It's not like we're trying to move out our whole roster. If there are deals that will help us move the team forward we will look to do that. In this case we're talking about two players that are unrestricted and we couldn't risk not getting something for them. If we couldn't re-sign them it was important we got some assets back for them."

Sunday, 02.15.2015 / 12:37 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Alain Vigneault stepped behind the Montreal Canadiens bench on Oct. 1, 1997 feeling ready, if a bit green. He was 36 years old, the second youngest coach in Canadiens history behind Claude Ruel.

Vigneault was coaching his first NHL game.

"I was a little French Quebecer getting an opportunity to coach the team from his province," Vigneault told NHL.com on Friday. "I knew the history that was there with the Habs, so I just felt so honored and privileged."

The Canadiens tied the Ottawa Senators 2-2 in Vigneault's NHL coaching debut. They defeated the Boston Bruins 4-1 three nights later to give him his first win.

On Saturday, Vigneault became the 21st coach in NHL history to win 500 games when his New York Rangers defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-1 at Gila River Arena.

"We were fortunate to do this in the same transaction with players who are in the prime of their careers more than two weeks before the [NHL] Trade Deadline in order to give them more time to contribute and jell with their teammates.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
