Time is running out for NHL sellers to offload players they don't want and buyers to build the best possible team to make a run at the cup.

Where the Chicago Blackhawks have made it clear they have their eyes on the big prize, others like the Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs find themselves in rebuild mode.

Here's a rundown of five players to watching leading up to the deadline on Monday at 3 p.m. ET.

Mikkel Boedker, Arizona Coyotes


Dan Hamhuis, Vancouver Canucks


Loui Eriksson, Boston Bruins


Eric Staal, Carolina Hurricanes


Radim Vrbata, Vancouver Canucks
