When the curtain rises on October for the 2016-17 NHL season, the trade rumor mill will also return to life. Several players, such as Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, could be among the upcoming season's notable trade candidates.

Some, such as Fleury, could be dealt in order to protect another player from next June's NHL expansion draft. Potential free agents, such as Shattenkirk, could be moved if unable to re-sign with their current teams before the February 2017 trade deadline. 

Other factors include a need to address a glaring roster requirement or to simply move out a player who is no longer a good fit.
