It pretty much gave teams an altimatum by moving the deadline up. Either you're going to take a shot for 8th or you're taking a shot at a top 10-15 pick. The one thing that I noticed is that the market was skewed from the start. People can say what they want about it being a weak draft or whatnot, but a 1st for Brendan Witt? Two 2nds and a player for Denis Gauthier? Granted, those players' prices were driven up by other teams, I'm sure. I guarantee Detroit was making a big pitch for Witt. The Rangers had to be gunning for Gauthier. But it seems that the market was just so out of whack from the get-go on defensemen. Suglobov for Klee? Stiff price to pay for a 35 year old UFA.

My question is what made this deadline what it was? Was it the market value of these players? Was it strictly a salary cap/trade deadline date change byproduct? Or is it just that teams were willing to toss away picks in this draft in order to help their clubs right now?
