By Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The trade market has closed for another season, and with it teams' last chances to either upgrade for a playoff push or start the rebuilding process for next season.

How did your favorite team do? NHL.com takes a look at a busy February on the trade market and analyzes what they did and what it could mean going forward.

Teams Incoming Assets Outgoing Assets Analysis
Sebastian Erixon
Dale Mitchell
Ryan O'Marra
Riley Holzapfel
Andrew Gordon
Mark Fraser
Bryan Rodney
Maxime Macenauer
Ducks GM Bob Murray said the team's recent hot streak pulled him out of seller mode. He told reporters the current group deserves a chance to take this run as far as possible -- hopefully all the way to the playoffs.
Greg Zanon
Brian Rolston
Mike Mottau
Steven Kampfer
Yannick Riendeau
Marc Cantin
Zanon is a physical, shot-blocking machine who will help the penalty kill and Mottau adds experience and depth on blue line. Rolston's versatility is a big plus with Rich Peverley out. Bruins got better without subtracting anything significant from their roster.
Cody Hodgson
Alexander Sulzer
'12 1st-rd pick
Zack Kassian
Marc-Andre Gragnani, Paul Gaustad
'13 4th-rd pick
It was a solid day for Sabres GM Darcy Regier. He got the 1st-rd pick he demanded for Gaustad in a trade with the Predators, and then swung a big deal with the Canucks to bring in the promising Hodgson.
None None It's been a quiet month for the Flames. GM Jay Feaster believes he has a playoff-caliber team, and is willing to roll the dice with the players he has to see if it can grab a top-eight spot.
None None The Hurricanes were supposed to be one of the big players approaching the deadline, but it never happened. GM Jim Rutherford re-signed Tuomo Ruutu and Tim Gleason, and then never found trading partners for players like Jaroslav Spacek and Bryan Allen.
Johnny Oduya
'12 5th-rd pick
John Scott
'13 2nd-rd pick,
Brendon Segal,
'13 3rd-rd pick
The Blackhawks wanted depth for their blue line and got it in Oduya from Winnipeg, at the cost of a pair of '13 draft picks. Sending out Scott, however, is a blow to the team's toughness. Scott didn't play often, but when he did, he kept other teams honest.
Jamie McGinn
Michael Sgarbossa
Mike Connolly
Steve Downie
Danny Richmond
Daniel Winnik
TJ Galiardi
Kyle Quincey
'13 7th-rd pick
Mike Carman
The Avs got more physical up front with Downie and McGinn. They're not the biggest pair, but they love to bang and aren't afraid to drop the gloves. They're also skilled offensively, which was an upgrade from Winnik and Galiardi. The undrafted Sgarbossa ranks in the top three in the OHL in goals and points.
Jack Johnson
Curtis McElhinney
Darryl Boyce
cond. 1st-rd pick
'12 4th-rd pick
'12 2nd-rd pick
'13 5th-rd pick
Samuel Pahlsson
Jeff Carter
Antoine Vermette
Grant Clitsome
The biggest trade might be the one the Jackets didn't make, opting to keep Rick Nash. The Jackets did get solid return for the players they did ship out. The Jackets will end up with two 1st-rd picks this season or next depending on if the Kings make the playoffs.
'12 2nd-rd pick
'13 3rd-rd pick
Nicklas Grossman Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk held onto his assets in hope his team can get back into the top eight in the West. Grossman was going to be a UFA this summer and wasn't sure he would re-sign. He said getting a high pick this year and next was too good to pass on.
Kyle Quincey
cond. '13 7th-rd pick
Mike Commodore
Sebastian Piche
'12 1st-rd pick
The Red Wings said they wanted to depth at forward and on defense at the deadline, and were able to make one wish come true with Quincey. The cost, however, was high, with the team sacrificing a 1st-rd pick.
Nick Schultz
Bryan Rodney
Tom Gilbert
Ryan O'Marra
The Oilers filled a need for a defensive-minded defenseman in Schultz. The loss of Gilbert's offensive skill is tough, but sometimes it takes giving up something to get something. Team also held onto Ryan Smyth and will continue to work on an extension to keep him from reaching free agency.
Wojtek Wolski
Jerred Smithson
Mike Vernace
'13 3rd-rd pick
'12 6th-rd pick
After a summer roster makeover, it makes sense the Panthers were quiet at the deadline. Wolski helps on shootouts (he's tied for 11th all-time in shootout goals) while Smithson leads the team in faceoff winning percentage at 55.6.
Jeff Carter Jack Johnson
cond. 1st-rd pick
The Kings were desperate for scoring and added a three-time 30-goal scorer in Carter. Being reunited with old Flyers buddy Mike Richards should give Carter a needed kick down the stretch. Losing Johnson was a big price, but Kings GM Dean Lombardi believes rookie Slava Voynov can fill his role.
Steven Kampfer
Tom Gilbert
Kurtis Foster
Nick Palmieri
Stephane Veilleux
Erik Christensen
'12 2nd-rd pick
cond. '13 3rd-rd pick
'13 7th-rd pick
Greg Zanon
Nick Schultz
Marek Zidlicky
Casey Wellman
Brad Staubitz
The Wild refreshed their blue line, adding more offensive in Gilbert and Foster, while gaining a pair of draft picks as part of subtracting Zidlicky, who was unhappy in his role with the team. Palmieri has promise as a 3rd-line forward.
Blake Geoffrion
Robert Slaney
Brad Staubitz
'12 2nd-rd pick
'13 2nd-rd pick
cond. '13 5th-rd pick
Hal Gill
Andrei Kostitsyn
'13 5th-rd pick
The Canadiens subtracted future UFAs Gill and Kostitsyn and bulked up their roster of draft picks. With a few contracts coming off the books this summer, it looks like the Habs will do their roster rebuilding during the offseason.
Paul Gaustad
Andrei Kostitsyn
Hal Gill
'12 6th-rd pick
'13 4th-rd pick
'13 5th-rd pick
Jerred Smithson
Blake Geoffrion
Robert Slaney
'12 1st-rd pick
'12 2nd-rd pick
'13 2nd-rd pick
cond. '13 5th-rd pick
If the Preds wanted to show they were serious Cup contenders, they've definitely done it. They added scoring, grit and strength in all the right places. And their strong base of prospects makes the loss of draft picks a bit more palatable.
Marek Zidlicky Kurtis Foster
Nick Palmieri
Stephane Veilleux
'12 2nd-rd pick
cond. '13 3rd-rd pick
Zidlicky is a big upgrade to the power play. And with injured defenseman Adam Larsson and Henrik Tallinder and center Travis Zajac aiming for returns prior to the playoffs, GM Lou Lamoriello didn't feel pressure to be too active at the deadline.
Yannick Riendeau
Marc Cantin
Tim Wallace
Brian Rolston
Mike Mottau
The Isles got younger with the trades of Rolston and Mottau. GM Garth Snow also chose to hold onto impending UFAs PA Parenteau and Evgeni Nabokov in hope of re-signing them, rather than peddle them for players and/or picks. If both re-sign, it will prove to be a smart move.
John Scott
Casey Wellman
Michael Vernace
'13 3rd-rd pick
Wojtek Wolski
Erik Christensen
'12 5th-rd pick
'13 7th-rd pick
They didn't catch the big fish, Rick Nash, but with a big lead in the Eastern Conference standings, they really didn't have to do much. They got a lot tougher with Scott, and got decent return for two forwards coach John Tortorella wasn't playing much.
Matt Gilroy
Ben Bishop
Brian Lee
'13 2nd-rd pick
Senators GM Bryan Murray didn't want to do much to mess with the chemistry his team has built. Lee couldn't find a regular spot in the lineup, and the hope is Gilroy can. Getting Bishop is smart insurance on rookie Robin Lehner if Craig Anderson's hand injury keeps him out for an extended time.
Nicklas Grossman
Pavel Kubina
Matthew Ford
Jon Kalinski
Kevin Marshall
cond. '12 2nd-rd pick
'12 2nd-rd pick
'13 3rd-rd pick
'13 4th-rd pick
The Flyers got bigger and tougher on the back end with Grossman and Kubina. Teams were hot after forward James van Riemsdyk, but GM Paul Holmgren said nothing appealed to him. They were rumored to be in the Rick Nash sweepstakes, but the cost was too much.
Antoine Vermette Curtis McElhinney
'12 2nd-rd pick
'13 5th-rd pick
GM Don Maloney loves Vermette's skill set, calling him a "Dave Tippett-type player." Maloney said he looked into upgrading a few other areas, but couldn't find any deals to his liking, and was OK with standing pat at the deadline.
None None GM Ray Shero called Monday a "frustrating" day, but if he can get a healthy Sidney Crosby back in the lineup, that would be better than any other move he could have made this month.
Daniel Winnik
TJ Galiardi
Dominic Moore
'12 7th-rd pick
'13 7th-rd pick
Jamie McGinn
Michael Sgarbossa
Mike Connolly
'12 2nd-rd pick
All three players the Sharks acquired will help their 28th-ranked penalty kill. The Sharks have enough other talented players to reverse their current slide, it's just a matter now of getting them healthy and all performing to their talent level.
'13 2nd-rd pick Ben Bishop GM Doug Armstrong didn't want to mess with his team's chemistry, so his only move was a trade from strength, dealing Bishop for a high pick in next year's draft, which is considered very strong.
Tim Wallace
Brian Lee
Keith Aulie
Mike Commodore
Sebastien Piche
Brendon Segal
Jon Kalinski
'12 1st-rd pick
'12 2nd-rd pick
cond. '12 2nd-rd pick
'13 2nd-rd pick
'13 4th-rd pick
Steve Downie
Pavel Kubina
Dominic Moore
Matt Gilroy
Carter Ashton
Kyle Quincey
'12 7th-rd pick
cond. '13 7th-rd pick
No team was busier than the Lightning, which now will have four picks (and possibly five) in the 1st two rds of this June's draft. They re-made their blue line, led by Aulie, a big bruiser that Tampa needs. The short-term pain in subtracting so many key parts could result in long-term gain if the Lightning can take advantage of the bounty of draft picks.
Mark Fraser
Carter Ashton
Dale Mitchell
Keith Aulie
Darryl Boyce
Leafs GM Brian Burke said adding Ashton fills a need for a big, strong, young power forward, and with their defense depth in the system, Aulie was expendable. Burke said he had a lot of options but said he wants to see if this group can climb back into a playoff spot. They have 20 games to do it.
Zack Kassian
Marc-Andre Gragnani
Andrew Gordon
Samuel Pahlsson
Cody Hodgson
Alexander Sulzer
Sebastian Erixon
'12 4th-rd picks (2)
The Canucks got a lot bigger and nastier with Kassian. Pahlsson fills a major need for a strong defensive center. The cost was high with Hodgson, but Canucks GM Mike Gillis clearly feels he has a team that can get back to the Stanley Cup Final, and maybe win one more game.
Mike Carman
Kevin Marshall
Danny Richmond
Matthew Ford
Outside of a pair of minor-league moves, GM George McPhee was quiet at the deadline. He certainly had options to move veterans Roman Hamrlik and Mike Knuble, among others, but stood pat with the belief he already has the necessary pieces in place to get back into the playoffs.
Grant Clitsome
Maxime Macenauer
'13 2nd-rd pick
'13 3rd-rd pick
Johnny Oduya
Riley Holzapfel
The Jets moved impending UFA Oduya, but feel they have enough to fill his ice time. The Jets are in the thick of the playoff chase, with the division title in reach. So rather than mess with his roster, GM Kevin Cheveldayoff chose to stick with what he's got. The next 18 games will show if he was right.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
