The Day After
Well it is one day after the NHL trade deadline and the balance of power remains on the West, although Pittsburgh has put themselves in a good spot this year in the East. The Penguins may have given up their future however for this season, especially if Hossa opts to test the free-agent waters.
In the West Dallas and San Jose both bolstered their rosters with trade deadline pickups in Brad Richards and Brian Campbell, while Detroit and Colorado both added to their defense corps. Colorado also made a splash with the signing of Peter Forsberg who will help the Avalanche get on the scoreboard more often.
The surprise of the deadline was the trade of Huet from Montreal for relatively nothing. Price however backed up the trade by posting an impressive win last night.
Who will be the long term winners? We won’t find out until the last games are played.
