2011 Trade Deadline

Canucks add two forwards to improve roster depth

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 6:17 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Dave Lozo - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Vancouver Canucks have been sitting atop the NHL standings for about a month and have been looking down on the rest of the Western Conference for nearly two months.

That didn't stop GM Mike Gillis from making a couple tweaks to the lineup Monday, when he acquired forwards Maxim Lapierre from the Anaheim Ducks and Chris Higgins from the Florida Panthers without losing anyone from the Canucks' current roster.

Gillis gave up Joel Perreault and a third-round pick to the Ducks and Evan Oberg and another third-round pick to the Panthers.

Tallon deals with eye toward building

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 5:13 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Dave Lozo - NHL.com Staff Writer

"The decision was made to keep our core together and keep our eye on the ball as far as the future is concerned. We added a great number of picks and got younger and really solidified our future. The future is most important for us." -- Dale Tallon

Dale Tallon's first season as general manager of the Florida Panthers isn't likely to end with the franchise's first trip to the Stanley Cup Playoffs since 2000, but maybe Tallon's thorough housecleaning on Monday will be the first step toward getting the Panthers back to the postseason in the near future.

Tallon parted ways with four veterans on trade deadline day -- defensemen Dennis Wideman and Bryan Allen and forwards Chris Higgins and Radek Dvorak. In return, the Panthers received forward Sergei Samsonov and Patrick Rissmiller, whose contracts expire after this season, 23-year-old Niclas Bergfors, prospects Evan Oberg and Jake Hauswirth and a pair of third-round draft picks.

Kings paid a ransom to Oilers for Penner

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 4:35 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Does Dustin Penner turn the Los Angeles Kings into a Stanley Cup contender? Did Kings GM Dean Lombardi pay too high a price to pluck the goal scorer out of Edmonton?

The answers are maybe and it all depends.

Penner was the biggest name to move on a trade deadline day that was excruciatingly slow by recent comparisons, but Lombardi had to give up stud defense prospect Colten Teubert, a 2011 first-round pick and a conditional second-round pick in order to get a player who this season had 21 goals and 39 points on the Western Conference's worst team.

The upside here is Penner can play left wing on the Kings' top line, alongside Anze Kopitar and Wayne Simmonds, moving Brad Richardson down to a bottom-six role. Penner, who scored 32 goals last season, could get hot in March during a playoff race and provide some momentum for an L.A. offense that is ranked 18th in the NHL (2.69 goals per game).

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 4:21 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Robin Brownlee - NHL.com Correspondent

EDMONTON -- Dustin Penner had heard his name attached to several rumors heading into the NHL trade deadline, but said the Edmonton Oilers' decision to trade him to the Los Angeles Kings still took him by surprise.

Penner, 28, in his fourth season with the Oilers after being acquired from Anaheim by way of an offer sheet in the summer of 2007, was dealt to the Kings for defenseman Colten Teubert, a first-round draft choice in 2011 and a conditional third-round pick in 2012.

"I'm sad to leave," Penner said. "I think like everybody here, I felt we were building something.

Lombardi happy cost of Penner wasn't Schenn

Monday, 02.28.2011 / 2:33 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi wanted to add something enticing to his surging team without giving up top prospect Brayden Schenn. Dustin Penner was the answer, and although he came at a steep price -- including a top defense prospect and a first-round draft pick -- Lombardi appeared tired but in good spirits after making what was arguably the day's biggest splash.

Penner comes to Los Angeles from Edmonton in exchange for 2008 first-round pick Colten Teubert, a first-round pick in 2011 and a conditional second-round pick in 2012.

Penner had 21 goals and 39 points in 62 games with the Oilers this season. He scored a career-high 32 goals and 63 points this past season.

Los Angeles enters its game Monday against Detroit as the fifth-place team in the Western Conference with 76 points. The Kings have won three in a row and 11 of their last 15 games.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
