Posted on 03/04/2009 2:54:33 PM PST by airborne
The trade deadline has come and gone, and there were some big deals!
And some big signings of key players to their respective teams that will tighten the race towards the playoffs even more!
I went to the fights and a hockey game broke out.
LIST OF TRADES AT DEADLINE - Link to trade stories below
Rangers add Antropov, Morris at the deadline
Hurricanes re-acquire Cole
Bruins add veteran punch,(Recchi)
Guerin’s off the Island (to Pens!)
Flames acquire Jokinen from Coyotes
LIST OF TRADES UP TILL 3/3/09
I’m glad that the Hurricanes brought Erik Cole back into the fold. He’s a fan favorite whose trade left a ton of people (myself included) scratching their heads in befuddlement. Hopefully we’ll see a return of the BCS line!
Word is he’ll be back with Stall. They really did work well together.
My Jackets picked up Antoine Vermette in a move that can only help us make the playoffs for the first time. Sorry to see Pascal LeClaire go, he’s a class act, but Steve Mason simply is the new franchise goalie for the CBJ.
A good move, IMO.
What is the feeling in Chicago about Samuel Pauhlson (Spelling?) coming tp the Hawks?
I wonder if there was much interest in Clemmenson from other teams. He came up with good results playing in Brodeur’s place, but I gotta be honest with you . . . I covered my eyes a lot while watching him play. LOL.
Not much action on the trade front tonight, as far as big trades are concerned.
Recchi should help Boston, McClaren should be a good fit for Philly, but Calgary really upgraded getting Jokinen and Leopold.
Guerin adds grit. I also like the Chris Kunitz pickup by the Pens. Keeping my fingers crossed that we get to see Sid and Ovechkin go toe to toe for 7 games when it really counts.

Are you near by Hershey and are you going to go to the event. Sounds pretty cool...btw, thought Malkin would pull off the win last night on the last shot :). Oh well...at least they got a point
Yes, I’m a season ticket holder. I’ll be taking my camera, so if they come out, I’ll post a picture of me with Lord Stanley’s hardware.
Funny thing is, the Bears are playing the Penguins that night!
My friends know I’m a Pens fan, but I still get razzed when I wear the black and yellow.
We were lucky to get a point last night. Just like old times though - never count ‘em out of it!
Oh is that a cool picture!!! I am thrilled for you!!! Awesome...just awesome. I’d put it in your Christmas card next year :)
And think of it this way, you got to hold it before Sid does!
I invited it to Pittsburgh!!!
The Cup must have been listening to you :) 6 to 4 over Boston...Shero looks like a genius w/the Kunitz find!!!
