Highlighting Some Of The Moves Today

from Michael Traikos at the Toronto Sun,

What was the biggest move on deadline day?

Was it 40-year-old Patrick Marleau joining the Penguins for one last shot at a championship? Was it Robin Lehner heading to Vegas to be Marc-Andre Fleury’s backup? Jean-Gabriel Pageau going to the Islanders?

If those are your options, then that tells you everything you need to know about a day that had a lot of trades – but was lacking in star talent.

Chris Kreider decided on re-signing with the New York Rangers, Dustin Byfuglien decided he still isn’t healthy (or motivated) to return to the NHL this season, and Toronto decided to hang onto Tyson Barrie for the remainder of the season. Even Zamboni driver-turned-emergency goalie David Ayres stayed put.

That left GMs to fight over a bunch of players who probably won’t end up moving the needle much.
