Nashville and NJ were both pretty good clubs at the deadline. And NJ made the finals. So you can't trade a guy at the deadline just because you're scared of free agency.

(I'm saying this from a GM's perspective, not a NHL fan. You win one Stanley Cup and you can pretty much tack on another 4-5 years of being able to keep your NHL GM career - if you were in the same position you'd probably do the same thing unless you had great long term reassurances from your owner)
