There's starting to be a little more chatter as the NHL trade deadline looms less than one-week away.
While the big names that are perhaps in play, like Ducks defenceman Chris Pronger and Avalanche winger Ryan Smyth, some of the lesser lights are starting to get more attention.
Two of those types of guys play for the Tampa Bay Lightning: forwards Gary Roberts and Mark Recchi.
Recchi has played remarkably well over the course of the entire season. Roberts, who many thought would not come back and play, has worked himself back in the last number of weeks to become a pretty effective player in the minutes that he's playing.
Contending teams as well as clubs that are trying to make the playoffs are looking at Recchi and Roberts and there is interest in these guys.
The one thing that is a bit of a concern for a team looking to add either Recchi or Roberts would be the mindset of the player.
Can they be added as a fourth line player, getting six-to-eight minutes of ice time, or does their previous stature in the league mean that they need a lot more time than that?
