Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

I don't feel like sorting through all that BS. Maybe if the thread was reserved for breaking news and deals only, but it is full of rampant speculation and flame wars.

Exactly, Since the OP doesn't get updated with every trade, and every page is full of HOLLAND SUXORS!!!!!! it just takes far too long to sort the wheat from the chaff. How many pages would I have to read to find out that Gabby and Pominville have been traded?

Will we be the only team who doesn't trade anyone? One of very few at least.

We traded Kent Huskins.

RT @WharnsbyCBC: Don't forget new #NYR Derek Dorsett is out for rest of the season after suffering a fractured clavicle on Mar. 7.

I'm aware. He has two more years on his contract. Rangers might do something with Asham in the off-season.

So one way of thinking about this is that Columbus lost Nash, Brassard, Moore, and Dorsett (injured), and gained Gaborik, Dubinsky, Anisimov, and a 1st. Well played Columbus.

So you're saying that this trade belongs in it's own thread and the other's don't? Come on buddy. We all have to sort through it, and it's a hell of a lot better than flooding the general discussion section like it's the trade rumors and free agent signings section of HFB.

Major trades have always had their own threads here as well. Its not like I started a thread for Jussi Jokenin. Maybe next year we can have a clean thread with news only.

Classic Holland.

Overvalues his own players. Under-values others. Expects players to take less money to play in Detroit.

There is a large trend now, of players saying "no thanks" to Detroit.

This was first mentioned publically by Winsewski 2 off-seasons ago, and it came home to roost with Suter and Parise.

Holland will do nothing of significance this off-season either.

Bingo.

Our management needs to realize that we're no longer the premiere location we once were.

5 minutes than its over boys

not necessarily

Holland's ego is getting in the way of some good options that were available and still are

Damn, Columbus is looking good.

Why because they got a 7.5 million dollar player with 9 goals, f'ing cleary has 1 less than him

Comeau to the Jackets for a 5th rounder.

Wash this through your head for a minute...the Blue Jackets have made more moves than we have.

I don't see how anybody on this forum can be happy today...look at the standings basically the top 4 teams in the West stood part for very OBVIOUS reasons. Hawks and Ducks already dominate, Canucks got Roy yesterday, LA Kings just won the cup with the same team. Now Blues, Sharks, Wild, Blue Jackets, Preds

They didn't even really stand pat though.

The Blackhawks acquired Handzus, the Kings acquired Regehr, as you mentioned, the Canucks acquired Roy. So even some of the top teams made moves to fulfill their needs.

Comeau for a 5th to Columbus...Columbus GM knows what's up.

Jay Feaster is useless.

Comeau cost the Flames nothing at all they got him off waivers, and Columbus is just filling the roster spots vacated in the Gaborik trade. This is easily the best deal Feaster made this year.

I actually think the Gabby trade could hurt Columbus more than help it, they were coming along nicely and they lost a lot of depth for a guy with 1 more goal than Dan Cleary.

Another wasted year.... Do we really expect to get past the 1st round of the playoffs?
