NHL Trading Deadline Highlights

Well, the deadline for the NHL to trade was at 1 PM MST.

Many teams went nuts trading for draft picks, vying for the best player to get them either into the playoff hunt or carried through the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Lots of key veterans, overpriced and taking up salary on teams that can't afford to keep them, guys like Tone Amonte wound up with his best frien Jeremy Roenick and the Philadelphia Flyers. Phil Housley went to the Toronto Maple Leafs along with old man Doug Gilmour.

If you are a Penguins fan, you are pissed like me to see the entire team get thrown away and young guys only making $40,000 a year.
