The 2020 NHL trade deadline is less than a week away, and with many quality players rumored to be available, we could be in store for an exciting period of rumors and completed deals.

There is no clear favorite to win the Stanley Cup, and that means several teams could attempt bold moves ahead of the deadline in order to make the upgrades needed for a deep playoff run. One of those contenders is the Boston Bruins, who lost in Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final but look poised to get there again with the league's best record entering Monday. The Bruins should be among the most aggressive buyers, and secondary scoring is their primary need.

Let's look at the top 10 players for teams to target ahead of the Feb. 24 trade deadline.
