There were the reports of clashes between selanne and sutter, but they were fairly overblown. They patched things up fairly quickly.

Warrener(and ballard) turns into Drury so basically....

Not a bad deal at all

PS....Tocchet was traded to LA for Robitaille, who was dealt to NY for Nedved who was turned into Kovalev..........Not too shabby at all!!!
Good for one year though.

I forgot about the Naslund deal, as I try to block that thing from my memory, but this trade was horrid.

Tocchet's "great Pens career" lasted all of two seasons. I'm as big of a Wregget fan as there was but the fact remains this trade can simply be described as "the death of a would-be dynasty". Coffey was exactly what the Penguins needed for years after this deal went down.

And I don't care what happened to what after what, we didn't trade Paul Coffey for Alexei Kovalev.

I fully agree. It still hurts to see Recchi not in a Penguins uniform. His best years were in Pittsburgh. Coffey was just incredible for us.

It's not THE best but for the Habs a good one was:

Zednik, Bulis, 1st to the Habs for Linden, Zubrus and a 2nd to the Caps.

Zednik and Bulis have been huge parts of the team these past couple of years, and that draft pick became Perezhoghin i believe.

Zubrus is playing great, but not to his projected potential, but Linden only stayed for a bit then went back to Vancouver. What did that 2nd rounder become?

I am a Wings fan, but I have to post one for the Ottawa faithful.

Pavol Demitra to St.Louis...Christor Olsson to Ottawa.

That one was very bad.

I cant really come up with any real steals or stinkers for the Wings in the past few years. I guess the Schneider deal from last year was decent. As far as really bad ones? I guess picking up Ulf Samuelsson from the Rangers in 99 for a 2nd rounder and a 3rd rounder was pretty bad. Ulf played about 7 games for the Wings, and the Wings lost 2 picks.

Nice move there.

Worst trade ever for the Wings though? Thats an easy one.

Bernie Federko (who was 78 years old and played 1 year for the Wings) and Tony McKegney (played 14 games for the Wings) to St.Louis for Paul McLean (scored over 30 goals for the Blues) and Adam Oates (Hall of Famer).


Worst Wings trade ever.

Ah Paul Coffey. Incredible for the Oilers, then they trade him to Pittsburgh right before they win the 4th cup. Then incredible for Pittsbugh, then he gets traded right before they win their 2nd. And then...

Edit: I guess that's not really fair. He had some pretty good years in Detroit too, statistically anyway.

I don't know. We needed a player like Coffey for years? I don't remember any shortage of goals for at least a decade following the deal. We still had Murphy for another four years, then Zubov. You know how our high-octane teams turned out down the road. Paper champions, all. Would Paul Coffey have changed that?

One could argue that the Pens didn't go far enough with trades of this ilk. You're familiar with the Pens' achilles heel during the '90s: defense, and team toughness. Kjell, Tocchet, and Wregget provided that. The Pens did even better following this trade, so you can't argue with results, unless you want to say they improved despite it.

Maybe the return value wasn't what you'd like, but I doubt we'd have done any better over the decade absent this deal. In fact, like I said before, it was probably too little in the right direction.

One good one for the Wings was sending Coffey and Primeau to Hartford for Shanahan. Losing Coffey was a blow, but Shanny was a force that year and was the power forward Detroit needed.

Maybe not quite trade deadline stuff, but for the Flames I'd mention:

St. Louis traded Rik Wilson, Joe Mullen and Terry Johnson to Calgary for Eddy Beers, Charlie Bourgeois and Gino Cavallini on February 1, 1986.

Also:

N.Y. Islanders traded John Tonelli to Calgary in exchange for Rich Kromm and Steve Konroyd on March 11, 1986.
