Busy Day For Bochenski

from the Chicago Tribune,

Bochenski was headed to Manchester, N.H., with his Binghamton teammates when he learned he had been traded from the Senators to the Hawks for center Tyler Arnason. The bus took a detour and dropped off Bochenski at the Hartford airport for a flight to Chicago. The flight was delayed and he didn't land at O'Hare until 7:10 p.m. He arrived at the United Center after the first period, dressed and before he knew it was on the ice.

What We Missed In The U.S.

from the Toronto Star,

The annual NHL trade deadline day feeding frenzy can be best summed up by paraphrasing Winston Churchill: Never have so many said so much about so little. The wartime reference is appropriate because this is the day Canada's sports networks go to battle, pulling out all the stops to prove they can talk hockey better than the other guys. TSN produced six hours of coverage, Rogers Sportsnet eight and The Score talked hockey all day. The FAN 590 and 640 Toronto also combined for nine hours.

Western Conference Got Better

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,

It wasn't quite the elite-player stockpiling that we're used to seeing at the trading deadline, but even so, there was enough activity yesterday that it makes the post-season an even more exciting prospect -- especially in the west. Sitting aloof at the top and tight against the salary cap, the Detroit Red Wings made no significant moves. But the teams behind them showed no such reticence and, in the process, appear to have closed the gap.

Theodore Vows To Bounce Back

from the CP via Sportsnet,

Jose Theodore bowed out gracefully from the Montreal Canadiens. And he vowed to regain his NHL all-star form with his new team, the Colorado Avalanche. "I was confident that I would bounce back this year for this (Montreal) team and I'm confident I can bounce back with Colorado," a relaxed Theodore said Thursday. "Hockey has a lot to do with confidence and my confidence is actually pretty good going into Colorado."

Who Won

from the CP via the Toronto Star,

The salary cap that came into effect this season restricted some teams' ability to deal, but there were more moves than expected as activity heated before the 3 p.m. ET cutoff. It was clear, too, that defencemen were the most highly prized players. Edmonton, Vancouver and Ottawa strengthened their lineups, as did Carolina, the New York Rangers and Nashville.

Trading Trends

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

So what did we learn from the (in)action of the 2006 National Hockey League trading deadline? With the possible exception of the Colorado Avalanche's Pierre Lacroix, the majority of NHL general managers chose to go the ultra-conservative route this time around, believing if they couldn't get a deal done to their liking, they weren't going to make one at all.

Sign Him Up

from the Pittsburgh Penguins,

On two nights in February, there was a Fleury on the Mellon Arena ice. That’s nothing new. What was unusual about it, though, he wasn’t defending a goal – he was trying to shoot pucks into it. No, it wasn’t Marc-Andre Fleury, the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender. It was his dad, Andre, who took part in the annual Penguins Adult Hockey Fantasy Camp.

Break Time

Time for some dinner and a cocktail. Will be back in about an hour or so. The last hour before the trade deadline was quiet busy and I am glad this only happens once a year. I will update when I get back.
