from Stephen Brunt of the Globe and Mail,
In the old days, back before the National Hockey League owners’ great victory over the players and the imposition of a salary cap, the equation come trade deadline day was easy for even the most casual fan to understand.
Rich, competitive teams were buyers. Poor and non-competitive teams were sellers.
Sometimes the doings were dramatic, sometimes less so, and always there were intangibles in the mix. A team preparing for the playoffs might want to add “grit” or “character” or “toughness” or a player who might have a calming/inspiring presence in the dressing room.
