Earth shattering move.

I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

He's not gonna net much in return, he's more useful to us this season. Keep him.

Maybe this is what Troy was trying to post. (the tweet no longer exists)

Dallas sends Emil DJuse to Florida for Buffalo's 6th round pick.

I thought he looked good in TC.

Nice trade, this 6th round pick is already a greater scoring threat than Janmark.

They'll probably need it to acquire Daley.

Blolz. Boston traded for Nick Ritchie. Maybe they'd thought that's who they were signing in summer and then the season started and they discovered they had the worse Ritchie.

Golden Knights acquire Lehner from Chicago. Now that's exciting.

That happened for real a few years back in my hometown team in Switzerland. The front office signed a Marc Savard, thinking it was the Thrasher centre that had like 90 pts in his last season. Coming off the airplane, it was another Marc Savard who was some dude playing in Italy. The result was, uh, indescribable.

I think that is one of the better acquisitions. Vegas has had a similar problem to the Stars from a few seasons ago. If Fleury was not in net, they were not winning. Lehner is a quality goalie who can split time - or take time - from Fleury.

He was also their top AHL scoring d-man. My guess is he asked for a trade because he knows he has zero shot of making the Stars with them already having five youngish d-men locked up and Harley on the way.

Domingue in Vancouver, Lehner in Vegas, Hutchinson in Colorado. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes are in the middle of the storm with their goalie situation.

I wonder if Nill intentionally said the same thing.

Nill always says he likes where the team is at. I don't even listen to what that guy says anymore. He never tells the actual truth.

I'm glad. Unless we were getting someone great (Pageau or Kreider), most of the players moved were not worth upsetting the team.

Sonny Milano sounds like the name of a Florida weatherman.

Either way, this team isn't a cup contender. Whatever they would have gotten wouldn't have put them over the top anyway.

They're above average and will probably get to the 2nd or 3rd round.

I was tempted to say we won this trade deadline by not acquiring Joe Thornton, but other teams in the West matched us stride for stride by also not acquiring Joe Thornton.

Player for a pick probably. Also you could straight up trade players for cash back then.

Winners
Islanders: Pageau. Just Pageau.
Golden Knights: They got a solid #1B goalie.
Oilers: They finally have a legit defenseman even if he's beyond his expiration date.

Losers
Ottawa: Nice to have 352 picks at the next draft, but now their oldest veteran is still in high school.
St. Louis: Staying put won't lead them to the 130-point mark. Big thumb down.
Montréal: Bergevin failed to ship Price in Colorado.

As colleague Kevin Kurz in San Jose reported on Monday, there was some interest from Dallas but my understanding is while the Stars did give it some serious thought internally, a trade offer was never made to the Sharks on Thornton.
