Shero sees Neal as great boost for Pens' offense

Tuesday, 02.22.2011 / 12:08 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Alan Robinson - NHL.com Correspondent

"This might have been the year we didn't do anything." -- Pegnuins GM Ray Shero

PITTSBURGH -- A few weeks ago, Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ray Shero didn't anticipate making one of his customarily astute trade deadline deals -- the kind that landed him players such as Marian Hossa and Bill Guerin.

The Penguins had been at or near the top of the Eastern Conference standings since bouncing back from a slow start in October. Sidney Crosby was producing goals and points at a career-high pace. Marc-Andre Fleury was playing like a Vezina Trophy finalist in goal.

Pens swap Goligoski for Neal and Niskanen

Monday, 02.21.2011 / 4:21 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the NHL club has acquired defenseman Alex Goligoski from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for left wing James Neal and defenseman Matt Niskanen.

Goligoski, 25, has appeared in 60 games for Pittsburgh this season, scoring nine goals and 22 assists for 31 points. Averaging 20:45 minutes of playing time per game, he shares the Pittsburgh lead for plus/minus rating (also Sidney Crosby) with a +20, and has a +34 rating for his career. Goligoski leads the Penguins in game-winning goals this season with four. A native of Grand Rapids, Minn., he was Pittsburgh's second round selection (61st overall) at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

"We're very excited to add Alex Goligoski to our hockey club," said Nieuwendyk. "Alex is a legitimate top-four defenseman who will have a positive impact on our entire crops of blue-liners. He has averaged over 20 minutes per game and can play in all situations."

Blues send former No. 1 pick Erik Johnson to Avs

Saturday, 02.19.2011 / 2:30 AM / 2011 Trade Deadline

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The St. Louis Blues made their second major deal in less than 24 hours when they dealt former No. 1 overall pick Erik Johnson to Colorado early Saturday.

Hours after sending captain Eric Brewer to Tampa Bay for junior defenseman Brock Beukeboom and a draft pick, the Blues dealt Johnson, also a defenseman, to the Avs along with forward Jay McClement and a first-round pick for rookie defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, third-year forward Chris Stewart and a second-round pick.

The draft picks will be used in the 2011 Entry Draft unless the Blues have a top-10 selection, in which case St. Louis can opt to transfer its 2012 first-rounder instead. If that happens, the Avs will send their second-round pick to St. Louis in 2012 instead of 2011.

Burke not done reshaping Toronto roster

Friday, 02.18.2011 / 7:41 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

Brian Burke has made three trades in the past 10 days as he continues to mold the Toronto organization, but he's not done dealing yet and some of the recent returns might not be around for long.

On Friday, Burke traded defenseman Tomas Kaberle to Boston for touted prospect Joe Colborne, the Bruins' first-round pick in the 2011 Entry Draft and a conditional second-rounder. He's also dealt forward Kris Versteeg to Philadelphia for a No. 1 and No. 3 pick in the draft and defenseman Francois Beauchemin to Anaheim for forward Joffrey Lupul, prospect Jake Gardiner and a conditional pick.

There are a lot of draft picks in that bounty for Burke, but that's not his end game.

Dudley hopes deal puts Thrashers back on track

Friday, 02.18.2011 / 6:08 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

ATLANTA -- Thrashers general manager Rick Dudley was fairly plain-spoken on Friday about his need to make a trade to try to jump-start his team's playoffs hopes.

The Thrashers are 3-9-4 in their last 16 games, a stretch that has seen them drop to 10th in the Eastern Conference entering Friday's games, two points out of playoff contention, after spending much of the season in the top eight.

After acquiring 24-year-old forward Blake Wheeler and 26-year-old defenseman Mark Stuart from Boston on Friday for center Rich Peverley, 28, and minor-league prospect Boris Valabik, Dudley also announced that he has no plans to be a seller for a franchise that has made the playoffs only once in its history.

In Kaberle, B's finally get desired defenseman

Friday, 02.18.2011 / 5:40 PM / 2011 Trade Deadline

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

"We've been saying all year about this need for a defenseman. The list of defenseman that fit this bill is very, very short. We felt we had to act and act assertively because things happen and sometimes you can't get the guy you want." -- Peter Chiarelli

It's been no secret the Boston Bruins have been looking for a puck-moving defenseman pretty much since the beginning of the season. Finally, GM Peter Chiarelli got his man -- a full 10 days before the 2011 Trade Deadline.

Chiarelli consummated a long-rumored deal Friday, acquiring Tomas Kaberle from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for top prospect Joe Colborne, the Bruins' own 2011 first-round pick and a conditional 2012 pick.

It was the highlight of a busy day for the Bruins, who earlier in the day acquired forward Rich Peverley and defenseman Boris Valabik from the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for forward Blake Wheeler and defenseman Mark Stuart

The Boston Bruins weren't the only contender in the Eastern Conference to beef up on the blue line Friday.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
