Islanders overpaid way, way too much for what they got.  Washington got very good pieces for another cup run, while LA loaded up on picks.

The Oil and the Flamers have both made some moves that should put them a better position for the playoffs. The stretch drive just got more competitive. Bring it on!

My biggest question from today is ; What’s with Dubas and the Leafs? They are set up to do nothing but fail and seem fine with it .

The volume of deals caught me off guard, I thought with the all the talk leading up to today it was gonna be mostly hype.

 

The Tyson Barrie rumor was crap as many knowledgeable Canuck fans would know it was a no go - just Toronto crap!

 

I think Washington did well for playoff contending teams and Montreal with LA moved their building process forward.

I think the Isles did well.  Ottawa for me is a big ol winner.  They did exactly what they needed to and potentially have 3 lottery picks IF the Isles fall from contention which, after a trade deadline can in fact happen as there is only 6 points separating the Islanders from 12th in the east as opposed to the 6th spot they're in right now.

 

For a cup contender, hard to say the Bolts and Caps didn't do the best.  

 

For a rebuilding team; gotta say Ottawa hit it out of the damned park.  They now have three 1st round picks, two currently in the top 6, 7 in the first 2 rounds and 13 total by the end of the 6th round while holding one of the listed top prospect pools in the league.

OIlers got worse and smaller.  Ennis is a smurf and Green is an absolute trainwreck defensively.

Carolina and Tampa did very well on the day.

 

Canucks made really good impact leading up, I think Toffoli is going to be a huge impact for us and I think Benning will find a way to keep him.

I thought the Isles pick had lottery protection on it. If its lottery it moves to 2021.

That's only if it is top 3, actually.

Which is what lottery pick means. Therefore, OTT can't get a lottery pick from the Isles in 2020

But they are still getting a mid to later round 1st in addition to two lottery picks. 

 

I didn't see the Vatenen trade coming. That was probably the only pick I wish the Canucks were in on.

Only top 3 from my understanding and any pick outside of the bottom 15 is considered a lottery pick

A lottery pick is any pick that has a chance of winning the lottery. i.e. any pick from a non-playoff team.

I think the Coyotes are all in on Hall.  They gave up a lot of their future to get both Kessel and Hall.  They will over pay Hall to keep him.
