Oduya back to the Hawks for first-round bust McNeill and a conditional fourth. Make your jokes about how our blue line of Keith, Seabrook, Hjalmarsson, Oduya, Campbell, and Rozsival are poised to win the 2014 Stanley Cup.

Desharnais has been traded to the Oilers and most Habs fans are very pleased by the move.

 

A move to free cap space & a precursor to a major trade before the deadline tomorrow?

Maxim Shalunov is reportedly close to bailing on the KHL and joining the Hawks. Boy, if we get any more Russians on this team, we might take down another political party.

Someone's gonna go in there for the game and discover that Capuano''s been living in Honky since "the incident."

He's more of a "van down by the river" kind of guy....

The best thing about the Hansen pick up was that it should - should, mind you - finally force DeBoer's hand and push Hayley out of the lineup for good. A bottom line of Hansen/Tierney/Karlsson could be pretty formidable in the postseason and with Donskoi coming back, I feel reasonably confident the Sharks can make it back to the WCF. Of course, they'd lose to Chicago in 6 because sports are no fun and everyone I hates win, but should someone come out and slay them, then we could potentially have a repeat of the '08-'09 Finals match-ups. And considering how that turned out, I'd be more than okay with it.

Bergevin, what are you doing?

 

Edit- Just picked up Dwight King. The Cup is ours.

 

 

 

Vanek to the Panthers. Decent move for the playoff push being a point out of a spot.

Landing Duchesne or another top free agent is such a longshot by now, I don't see it happening. At least we're fully stocked up on 4th liners.

 

For now, we can welcome Dwight Roy. ;)

 

 

 

Edit: Habs get another 4th liner in exchange for Sven Andrigetto. Yay.

This deadline blows because there's like 4 teams willing to admit they're sellers, one of them is the stupid Avalanches, and Vegas is throwing a wrinkle into the mix knowing that if you acquire someone you're going to leave another player exposed.

For sellers, you can solve some expansion problems. Canucks did it with the Hansen trade, player they got back is exempt from expansion draft.

The Perds pick up P.A. Parenteau for $19.95, plus processing and handling.  Or something like that.

I've been thinking more about this Shattenkirk deal, and the more I think about it, the more I like it.  Obviously there's Shatt, who played around 18 minutes on Tuesday night and made an impact on the PP.  The Caps' power play always seems to choke (like the rest of the team) in the playoffs, so getting one of the best power play QB's in the league will hopefully help with that.  As I mentioned, the picks don't hurt too bad since the 1st will be a low 1st and the 2nd may never be an NHLer.  Sanford is the only thing that worries me, he's a very good prospect, and the last thing the Caps need is to trade away another young sniper stud.

 

One piece that's being overlooked though I think is Phoenix Copley, the goalie we got in addition to Shatt.  Copley was initially our prospect but we traded him to the Blues in the Oshie deal.  He may end up being valuable since Vegas will almost certainly take Grubauer in the Expansion Draft.  Copley is a good goalie prospect and he may be able to be another solid backup to Holtby if (and more likely, when) Grubauer leaves.

So the Lightning moving Filppula & and 4th and 7th to Philly for Streit and then moving Streit to Pitt for a 4th essentially moves Filppula for cap space this offseason and opens a protected spot in the expansion draft because he has a no move clause.
