NHL at Trade Deadline

Let’s take a look at the standings today as the NHL Trade Deadline has past.

In the East, the top eight teams in order are: Devils, Senators, Hurricanes, Penguins, Canadiens, Rangers, Bruins, and Flyers.  There are six teams within 7 points of the final spot held by the Flyers.

In the West, the top eight teams in order are: Red Wings, Stars, Flames, Ducks, Sharks, Wild, Canucks, and Predators. There are five teams within 8 points of the final spot held by the Predators.

It is still real competitive in the race for playoff spots.  I see that the Senators lost their top spot for now, but they could regain it.  Most teams have less than 20 games remaining.  Also, in the East, the Flyers, the most improved from last season, last night rebounded with a win after 10 game losing streak.  In the West, the Stars are now challenging the Red Wings for the top spot.  So, it is to become real exciting as we reach the end of the season.

So, what is the big deal today?  Well, the trade deadline was at 3 PM ET.  So, who has improved? Check out the latest news headlines at the NHL here.

Colorado looks like it improved alot.  They got Forsberg and Foote back.

Pittsburgh landed Hossa from Atlanta.

Check how your team did. Here is the news on this year’s completed trades to date.

    I was hoping the rangers would land hossa…instead we got rid of his (not as good) brother. Forsberg might be a flop depending on the status of his foot. Not too many big trades this year, I was expecting more action.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
