This season's NHL trade deadline is Feb. 26, and Anaheim's Bob Murray is one of the GMs most likely to be wheeling and dealing, based on his track record.

Since 2005, there has been an average of 40.6 trades in the month leading up to the deadline, 21.3 of which occur on the final day and 7.3 in the two days previous, based on the raw data made available at Pro Sports Transactions.

Looking ahead to this season, we have ranked the GMs in the Western Conference based on which ones are most likely to make some trades based on past behavior, and we identified whether they are likely to be buyers, sellers or still on the bubble.
