Jake Gardiner
No. 6 pick in 2011

Ben Maxwell

Rich Peverley
Brent Sopel
Boris Valabik
Nigel Dawes
Took advantage of Bruins need at center to add big forward and phyiscal defenseman, but it cost a cheap, productive player to do so

Rich Peverley
Boris Valabik
Blake Wheeler
Mark Stuart
Joe Colborne
No. 1 pick in 2011
No. 2 pick in 2011
No. 2 pick in 2012*
Pushed some serious chips into the middle to add the best power-play QB available and to boslter the depth at center for a Cup run
Brad Boyes
No. 2 pick in 2011 New owner Terry Pegula said he wants to add, and the Sabres did just that by dealing for Brad Boyes.
None None GM Jay Feaster could add, but also might stand pat and ride recent surge
Cory Stillman
Derek Joselin
No. 2 pick in 2012
Ian White
Ryan Carter
No. 5 pick in 2011
Future considerations
Turned to an old friend to bolster the forward depth while rewarded with a high pick for being willing to add White's contract in November
Michal Frolik
Alexander Salak
Jack Skille
David Pacan
Hugh Jessiman
Picked up a young, skilled forward that had fallen out of favor and a goalie prospect without paying much
Erik Johnson
Brian Elliott
Jay McClement
No. 1 pick in 2011 or 2012
Chris Stewart
Kevin Shattenkrik
Craig Anderson
No. 2 pick in 2011 or 2012
Acquired a potential franchise defenseman but paid a big price to do so; also dealt one disappointing goalie for another, younger one
None None Help on D came via waivers (Rivet)
Alex Goligoski
James Neal
Matt Niskanen
Dealt from a position of strength (young forwards) to address a need (offensive defenseman)
None None Lack of cap space could prevent any big moves for the Wings

Ryan Cater
No. 3 pick in 2011
No. 5 pick in 2011
Bryan McCabe
Cory Stillman
No. 7 pick in 2012*
GM Dale Tallon has collected some picks as he continues to rebuild -- expect more deals and he could get bigger returns for Vokoun, Weiss
None None Expected to be a player anway, now have a hole with Sturm claimed
None None Tough team to figure, but could make a minor addition or two
Brent Sopel
Paul Mara
Nigel Dawes
Ben Maxwell
No. 4 pick in 2011
No. 5 pick in 2012
Habs were short on D because of injuries and added a couple of solid veterans for depth at a low cost
Mike Fisher
No. 1 pick in 2011
No. 2 or 3 pick in 2012*
Fisher makes a lot of sense now and in the future -- extra pick worth it if conditions (playoff success) met
Jay Leach
Steve Zalewski
Patrick Davis
Mike Swift
Devils trying for miracle comeback -- could buy or sell (Arnott?)
Al Montoya
No. 6 pick in 2011
Have a couple of veterans that could be on the move
Bryan McCabe
Tim Kennedy
No. 3 pick in 2011
Easy to like this move -- inject some veteran offense on D at a low cost

No. 6 or 7 pick in 2011
No. 2 or 3 in 2012*
Mike Fisher
Chris Kelly
Jarkko Ruutu
Alex Kovalev

GM Bryan Murray is tearing it down in Ottawa -- added lots of picks and might not be done; also might have secured his No. 1 goalie for next year if Anderson continues to rebound
Kris Versteeg No. 1 pick in 2011
No. 3 pick in 2011
Flyers make an already deep forward group even deeper with Cup winner
No. 6 pick in 2011
Al Montoya
Surprising again this season, is there a minor add or two possible?
James Neal
Alex Kovalev
Matt Niskanen
Alex Goligoski
No. 6 or 7 pick in 2011
Restocked at forward to combat injuries -- GM Ray Shero might not be done, either
Ian White
Patrick Davis
Mike Swift
Future considerations
Derek Joselin
Jay Leach
Steve Zalewski
No. 2 pick in 2011
Grabbed a veteran defenseman with some offensive punch -- is GM Doug Wilson done shopping?
Chris Stewart
Kevin Shattenkirk
No. 2 pick in 2011 or 2012
No. 2 pick in 2011
Erik Johnson
Jay McClement
Brad Boyes
No. 1 pick in 2011 or 2012
A franchise-altering move to add a young power forward -- and Shattenkirk is no throw-in
Eric Brewer
Brock Beukeboom
No. 3 pick in 2011
Another team that went and grabbed a quality defenseman early on
Joffrey Lupul
Joe Colborne

No. 4 pick in 2013*
Tomas Kaberle
Francois Beauchemin
Kris Versteeg
No. 7 pick in 2011*
GM Brian Burke secured high returns, picking up two good prospects and draft picks he intends to flip for more young players; Maple Leafs could still add a player (likely on defense) to help their surprising postseason push
None None Could add a No. 4 center or depth on defense, but no glaring holes
None None Added a goal-scorer via waivers (Sturm), still need a No. 2 center

       *Conditional draft pick
