Raffi dirtbag Torres to San Jose for a 3rd round pick. I wonder if there's any conditions on it, like him getting suspended for headhunting.

Yeah Dorsett was the heart of their team. It wouldn't be quite like us losing Helm, but close. And Brassard/Moore is like us losing Filpulla signed to a 3 million deal for a another year, and Brendan Smith.

Not saying I wouldn't do it, but we all saw what happened to New York when they lost the heart and soul aspect and loaded up no high end talent. You need good depth players.

And Minnesota gave up the equivalent of Mrazek, Jarnkrok for Pominville. It's a risky trade.

I don't know how I feel. Slighty disappointed, but the more I think about it it's not as bad as it seems to me.

Moore is not Brendan Smith.

Oh my god... LeBrun with a good tweet:

a rare thing indeed: Detroit Red Wings did not make a trade on deadline day. Probably smart, need to keep picks
I agree!

Keep picks for what? More small sized Euros who'd rather pass than shoot and who won't see a whiff of Red Wings ice for 5 or 6 years?

"Prices too high"

No they aren't, the prices are rock bottom. No team overpaid for any player other than perhaps Hanzus. Holland doesn't seem to know the difference between quality versus quanity. He's hording all these prospects which will go nowhere. Gaborik, Roy, Pominville, Iginla, Meester, Jagr, every signifcant player traded, was traded for NOTHING. Worthless prospects and draft picks aren't high prices. Trading one great player for 2 crappy prospects and picks isn't high prices. One good player is worth more than 3 crappy players everytime.

Moore is not Brendan Smith.

He's a year younger, and put up close to the same numbers in the AHL. The difference between the two is Moore is much better defensively, yet doesn't move and have the puck skills that Smith has. They are both 20-30 first round picks.

Tampa now has two unproven goaltenders and just lost a very good prospect, if you are willing to deal Conacher why not add a 2 and another prospect and try to get a great goaltender? WoW Stevie dropped the ball here.

Maybe it's a 3 way trade to get Luongo from Vancouver?? Heard he's been pulled from practice

John Moore is no Brendan Smith. He's not even the best young defenseman on that team and he has essentially no upside.

That's crazy. Pominville was traded for our equivalent of Jarnkrok and Mrazek...that's the real deal. Gaborik brought back 3 NHL players...that's a real deal.

This right here

Could have got Gaborik for Flip and a couple plugs

Stafford if probably very affordable looking at all the previous trades

I'm going to be the darkhorse here and not blame this all on Ken Holland like all the other fans. Why? Because I understand that Holland COULD"VE tried to get all he could. What honestly did he have to play with? Ian White? Filp? Great, two players that would be RENTALS. You think we're going to cash in and get a top-6 player or top-4 defensemen with two players that contracts end at the expiration of this season? For all we know, Holland could've been on the phones for the past who knows how long -- TRYING his best -- only to get turned down on the other side.

Everyone is so fixated on just getting rid of White and Filp but you have to understand, if you wanted any value out of these players they would have to get packaged with a top prospect and/or picks. No rightful GM is going to take on a rental and give up top roster players. So, if we could all calm the hell down, stop thinking that the world is over and re-evaluate things, you will be in a much better mood today.

Does it SUCK that we didn't do anything? Yeah, but at the same time atleast we have a GM that won't just trade away things to trade away things. Holland is one of the few GM's in this league that will keep his team competitive. Stop thinking you need to win the Stanley Cup every year. You could be in a fan base that hasn't made the playoffs within 20 years, you could be that franchise that hasn't won a cup in 40 years, but guess what? WE AREN'T AND HAVEN'T DEALT WITH THAT SINCE 21 SEASONS AGO! We've been in the playoffs for 21 straight seasons, and we won frickin 4 Stanley Cups within that timeline. Some of you guys are seriously just looking to get some "change", and "change" isn't always going to result in good things.

Look at the penguins (this is a s***ty example but roll with it gents);

They add Iggy, Morrow, and Murray. They play last night and get steam-rolled by BUFFALO 4-1. They had picked up those 3 and people were immediately dawning their names on the Stanley Cup. Crosby goes down and their line-up looks shaken now. We don't even know how this is going to end with all these franchises that made moves today. For all we know, every team today that traded could go on losing streaks because it screwed with chemistry.

Moral of the story:

STOP BEING PESSIMIST AND START BEING A LITTLE FRICKIN OPTIMISTIC GENTS.

If Moore was anywhere near Smith he would have meant much more to Columbus. Erixon, Murray were much more highly regarded and Smith is arguably better than Erixon but not as highly regarded as Murray.

No I meant Howson. Hes looking for work right?

Lol I figures you were being sarcastic anyway.

In what world does a 19 year old that played 67 games and 15 minutes a night have no upside? John Moore doesn't have the offensive upside, but he's a much better defensive guy and he hasn't played too well. But Smith hasn't exactly lit the world on fire this year either.

I do think Smith is a better prospect, but it's not a huge difference.

I see that two teams that we are playing this week lost pieces. Torres and O'byrne are out of their teams and the wings get back Z and get the addition of Dekeyser. Helm's going to push his back this week. We will see. Relax and stay away from the ledge. O and if you think Tartar won't be up with the roster expansion your nuts.

The only thing that genuinely surprises me is that we didn't trade a defenseman today. I thought for sure someone would be heading out, if not in a package then at least for a pick or two. Hmm.

1. Howson is not their GM anymore.

2. Amidst, all the s*** talking about Howson, people conveniently forget how much better that team got over the last two years. They only acquired Wisniewski, Johnson, Aucoin, Dubinsky, Anisimov, Letestu, Foligno, Tyutin, Umberger, Prospal, Bobrovsky and two 1st round picks under Howson. We got Samuelsson, Tootoo, Quincey, White, Commodore, and Gustavsson during the same time frame. Hmmm...

Not saying I want Howson to replace Holland, but that team got noticeably better under his tenure. So while it's fun to make jokes, he didn't do a bad job.
