Ducks GM Murray pleased with deadline trades

Monday, 03.02.2015 / 9:17 PM / 2015 NHL Trade Deadline

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

Perhaps the most telling part of Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray's conference call with reporters Monday was a reference to what happened last season and not the whirlwind hours leading up to the NHL Trade Deadline.

Murray remembers Anaheim nearly being taken to a Game 7 against the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference First Round, and how the Ducks couldn't match the Stanley Cup champion vigor of the Los Angeles Kings in a seven-game loss in the second round.

"I didn't think we were as close in the seven-game series with L.A. as everyone else thought," Murray said. "I thought we were lucky against Dallas."

That's why Murray made the Ducks more prepared for the rugged Western Conference path with the addition of defensemen James Wisniewski and Simon Despres at the deadline Monday.

Leopold's daughter asked for trade to Wild in letter

Maybe Jordyn Leopold has a future in hockey management.

A handwritten letter from the 11-year-old daughter of Jordan Leopold to the Minnesota Wild coaching staff surfaced Monday shortly after the defenseman was traded from the Columbus Blue Jackets to the Wild.

The Wild added Leopold, a Golden Valley, Minn., native, from the Blue Jackets for defenseman Justin Falk and a fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

"I didn’t even know she wrote it," her mom Jamie Leopold told KFAN radio in Minneapolis. "She left it on the counter, went to school one day, and I read it and just started bawling."

Jordyn Leopold's letter was a plea for the Wild to start winning more games (it was sent before goaltender Devan Dubnyk arrived and Minnesota became one of the hottest teams in the NHL), because her father was lonely in Ohio without her, her mother and her three siblings.

"My dad is very [lonely] without his family," Jordyn Leopold wrote. "We are living in Minnesota right now and I am lost without my dad and so is my mom, my two sisters and my brother."

The 2015 NHL Trade Deadline has passed and the dust is starting to settle around the League, which means it's time to analyze who got what, for what, and what it all means.

Some teams were trading to bolster what could be a legitimate Stanley Cup contending roster. Some were trying to acquire players who can help them get into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Others were in full sell mode because of massive rebuilding projects.

Here are the five teams who did the best for the situation they're in:

Quote of the Day

In respect to the organization and my teammates, it was the best move. When I look back at my career and all the different things I had to overcome, I have no regrets. It was great.
