I think any Colorado trade in the last few years is a surprise. Maybe not a huge one, yet no one sees them coming.

EJ/Stewart and Hodgson/Kassian trades are for sure the most shocking as of late. The Varly trade isnt as surprising because we knew Colorado was looking for a goalie and were after a young developed one like bernier, schneider, varly....

For the Oil,

The Gilbert-Schultz trade makes sense, but it was fairly out of thin air.

The Oilers offering Penner, Smid and Cogliano for Heatley was pretty shocking for both teams. And I am so happy that it didn't work out.

Ryan Smyth being traded at the deadline from the Oil wasn't exactly unexpected by some, but very shocking for the hometown fans.

I think it was pretty clear the Caps were also dealing one of their young goalies but to trade the best of the bunch for futures was definitively surprising. I thought Neuvirth was the one going for sure.

For me, Lee Stempniak to Toronto for Alex Steen and Carlo Colaiacovo.

Stempniak came out on fire that season for the Blues and I thought he was breaking out in the best way. He was my favorite Blue at the time too.

Still, love the trade now.

The Heatley for Havlat trade was pretty out of nowhere for me. Many Wild fans knew that Havlat was a little grumpy with the Wild, but I don't think many of us considered the possibility of trading him, yet alone in a one for one swap.

Were the Sharks shopping Heater at all at the time? I don't recall seeing any Heatley trade rumors either. I'm sure they were a little upset at his playoff performance that year but still. . . .

The Kassian - Hodgeson deal stunned pretty much the entire league. I dont remember any other trade announcement thread getting that many remakes. None of the insiders saw it coming. Nobody ever suggested it in an article or a thread i have seen. Normally there is at least a little bit of whispering before any trade goes down. Like buffalo has been talking on and off with vancouver or the like. Absolutely shocking. Especially since both players were on pretty much everyones untouchable player list.

Also, Hodgson for Kassian and Sulzer for Gragnani were actually separate deals, just to be pedantic. I was fuming about losing Hodgson until I actually saw Kassian play. He was like an escaped mental patient out there. Love the energy, needs to work on control and consistency, but hey, he just turned 21 this year. Blessing in disguise from the lockout is that he gets some extra time to terrorize the AHL for a bit and condition himself better.

Gragnani...well, his problem was just that he was born in the wrong century. In the 1400's or 1500's, he'd have been just the guy to travel around the unexplored world, discover places, and name them after himself. He's just got that kind of spirit. He's the kind of guy who says: "What's over there? Way, way over there?" then goes to find out. Where others may say: "Why?" or "Seriously, why?" or even "What the hell is wrong with you? WHY?!" he says: "Why not?" Danger? Peril? Intricately designed hockey set plays? Merely speed bumps in the road of life to intrepid souls such as his. He'd drop whatever he was doing, sail halfway around the world, discover Hawaii, and name it Gragnaniland. Why? Just because. Sure, his father would say: "Idiot boy, I sent you to the barn for eggs and you return six months later with a sack of macadamia nuts. WTF?!" But to the rest of the world, he'd have nailed his name in the pages of history as the man who discovered Gragnaniland.

Sadly, this adventurous streak didn't serve him terribly well here, as has been documented. His shifts on the Canucks always kept us in suspense waiting to see which retarded place he'd suddenly decide to bugger off to. It'd certainly be nowhere near scrums or nasty bodily contact, that much was always assured, however. Sulzer wasn't any kind of loss because he was buried behind depth...and Aaron Rome, who out idiot coach had a massive hard spot for. I'm glad he worked out well for you guys; good to see him getting an NHL gig after being misused here.
HAHAHAHHAHHAHHAHAHHHAHHAHAH!!

I would agree on the Mike Richards trade. Everyone and their mother knew one of Carter/Richards was going to be traded but when they both left I was very suprised.

This, no body had even a sniff of that trade. I was at work and playing online when I checked at like 4 a.m. I was in complete shock as EJ was considered unreadable even though he was no developing as everyone thought he would.

Thornton trade. I remember it came in at like 11:00 pm or something when I was just about to go to bed. At first I was shocked and appalled but said, "Well, at least we'll be getting Marleau." Saw the pieces coming back and was floored. Everyone at school knew I was a Bruins fan so I knew I was gonna get chirped.

Ok, here is a crappy one for Avs fans. The 2003 trade that sent both Yelle and Drury to Calgary. Shocking, the return stunk, and, well, awful.

...or was it in 2004?

Looking back, the Blues sure made some great deals..

The one that caught me the most off guard is probably the Richards trade.

For Morris and McAlmond.

Avs hated it cause drury was a favourite then. Flames dealt their highly and best touted D prospect for more offense. It was hard seeing Yelle go, he was very instrumental to their two cups and was a beast in the playoffs. One helluva PKer and warrior.

I was pretty shocked when Halak got traded. I thought for sure it was going to be Price that got traded but I'm glad I was wrong.

Should've traded Havlat to NJ.

Elias-Havlat would be an amazing tandem, and they are really good friends as well.
