I really like what Washington and Colorado did today - I wouldn't be shocked if both manage to sneak into the playoffs. Detroit picking up Stuart was a really nice move and he should help them with their injuries on defence.

No movement of Roloson or expandable salary...I call it a failure.

Because other teams should just be dying to take our crappy contracts? Less NHL 08, more reality.

I'm a little disappointed that Gill went for a 2nd and a 5th. I'm confident Staios could have garnered more, and the time is appropriate to trade him.

A huge winner was the Leafs, seriously.

Fletcher turned
Belak, Gill and Kilger into

a 2nd, a 3rd, and 2 5ths.

That's impressive for trading crap.

It would have been nice to see one of our guys signed. I don't know who the winner in the Hossa deal is - if he doesn't sign with the Pens, it was a brutal trade for Pittsburgh to make.

Cooke is not better then Pettinger, especially if you look at their offensive upsides. Vancouver didn't lose anything.

Minnesota added a big, mean guy to combat the San Jose's and Anaheim's of the conference. There's not much downside for that move.

Calgary had no reason to move anything. Maybe a fleet-footed defenseman might have been smart, but none of those (save for Campbell, who they had no shot at getting) was moved.

Montreal and Columbus, who was selling players, are the only losers today IMO.

The time was right - for sure. The problem is, the Oilers didn't want to trade him.

yeah the west is getting very exciting.. top 5 teams are set and ready to battle.. then calgary/canucks are both capable of engineering a fluke with their goalies.. minnie's just there to injure anybody they play in the 1st round..

out in the east.. jersey did nothing but they didn't need a lot of change now that elias and gionta seems to be turning the corner.. ottawa got some grit (past expiration date? we'll see).. pens got hossa.. and caps are providing great news for the 6th place finisher for a 1st round "upset"..

What do you do, Rollie moving wouldn't do much unless we could have got a 2nd for him. The salary of Rollie and Garon is well within acceptable for the moment.

He should have gone to Montreal but they probably were too involved with Hossa, I wouldn't want to read the Montreal newspapers if I was the Canadiens GM tomorrow.

I was dissapointed that the Oilers didn't clean up thier roster a little bit and shed some salaries, but there was really nothing not done today that can't be done when the season is over.

I'm sure injuries played a major factor in the Oilers being quiet today.
I hope Shremp gets to play these last 20 games, as well, Sanderson doesn't rot in the press box the rest of the season.

Me. Too.

great work again, Kevin's! (Lowe and Prendergast). Of course these guys would like a team that will be finishing in the bottom 5 (and not have the corresponding draft pick).

He would have gotten us more, but in the end the Oilers need Staios more then the propsect he would bring.


Not finding a buyer for Rollie is a failure, but not a big one.

You over value picks after the 1st round a great deal. The chances of getting 3 serviceable NHL players out of a 2nd,3rd and 2 5ths is slim to none.

Freeing up some cap space is all Toronto really did today

Vancouver is a huge loser IMO. How many more years of Luongo's contract do they intend to piss away without an offense in front of him?

I mean what's the point? At least when we had Pronger, Lowe really went for it and surrounded him with the pieces to make a run at a Cup.

Nonis should have made a more serious play for Hossa, seriously they couldn't have topped that Pittsburgh package?

In Calgary, Sutter has put a lot of the pieces in place, it's more up to the players and the coach to play up to what they have if something is going to happen there.

You undervalue picks past the first round

There was absolutely no reason whatsoever to move Staios, especially now that he's our best again. We've got nothing to replace him with, and his cap-hit is about right.

1. Glad I didn't burn a vacation day to sit in front of the TV/computer waiting for Lowe to do something.

2. Would like to have seen Lowe at least announce an RFA signing. ANYBODY. Instead, he's a no show.

3. Montreal is the big loser. Pittsburgh lands the biggest fish, but Buffalo did well for Campbell and Dallas got a great player without giving up Mark Fistric.

4. Disappointed Roloson is still an Oiler. I guess we're stuck with his salary for another year.

That's fine, but Belak is a goon, Gill is a big, slow oaf and Kilger doesn't really do anything.

Getting that many picks for that group of crap is impressive to me.
