Penguins get Kovalev for a conditional low (6th or 7th round) pick.

Pittsburgh facepalm. Where was this desire to get a useful winger when Crosby needed one? Shuffling in a couple of high-priced rentals didn't work last year.

I'm not too sure about that move. I wouldn't be comfortable with McElhinney as my starter should Rollie get injured.

Mike Smith will be the backup. He's on re-entry waivers today.

Anybody here the rant by Peter Stasny... Paul Stasnys dad... Man he was not happy about the avs blues trade... I don't have a link but if you watched NHL on the fly this morning you probably heard it.... I figured kovalev would end up in Pitt... We will just have to see how they do when Crosby gets back and others and if all the pieces come together for them....

Hmmm. $1.1 Million Pay/Cap-hit for Smith on re-entry.

Wonder if he'll make it through...

So this is Kovalev's 29th go around with Pittsburgh? :rolleyes:

Supposedly this move was endorsed by Mario, for what it's worth.

Yeah, I have no idea how TSN is going to fill hours of programming on deadline day.

They're going to have to do a profile on McKenzie's Blackberry or something...

Liles name has been mentioned in trade rumors... Stastny not so much... hmmm.

The New York Rangers, Dallas Stars and Montreal Canadiens are among the clubs eyeing Liles.

via McKenzie:

ATL trades Brent Sopel and Nigel Dawes to MTL for Ben Maxwell and a 4th rder. Done deal.

Ben Maxwell was #Bulldogs leading scorer with 11G 29A for 40P. He was top PP producer with 7 PPP.

MTL fills their D need.

Dawes was playing with the Wolves - 25G 17A 42P. 4 years older than Maxwell.

Adding an overpaid, aging sniper with motiviation issues won't save the Pens if Crosby doesn't come back.
