not letting binner and flower fight is a fucking atrocity
also we had zero trade deadline posts so I'm gonna just list some of the big moves with everyone in the east basically loading up heavy
meier to jersey - great move since they can extend him, I think he's still an rfa
o'reilly, mccabe to toronto is great, except o'reilly gets hurt. awesome. losing sandin in another trade sucks but what can you do
chychrun to ottawa is huge for the sens even if they don't make the playoffs this year, huge need. arizona really dropped the ball by asking for too much for so long, teams that had the assets to actually bid for him all just lost interest.
boston picks up orlov and bertuzzi - the best team in the league just gets better, both seem to be a good fit with both rentals being able to fit in anywhere on the lineup
nyr getting kane and tarasenko for cheap is good for them, added to an already good lineup. honestly the rangers are great throughout their whole lineup but for some reason I feel like both adds were unnecessary, although kane was the best playoff performer of the last decade so who knows
edit: forgot about edmonton getting ekholm, huge need, didn't cost too much and he's a great player. They really miss klefbom/larsson and i'd say ekholm is better than both those guys were.
don't really remember anything else other than vancouver buying for some reason and Jonathan Quick getting shafted when he should have retired a king
alright so the other 5 guys in this thread can reply their playoff predictions
