Granted, I was blogging all throughout the trade deadline, but given the on-the-fly nature of the whole exercise, it feels now like there was a whole lot more quantity than quality — which is sometimes the nature of blogging, I suppose.
Still, I feel like there's a lot more to offer in terms of who won and lost on this trade deadline day, and I'll do my best to offer up some more thoughts tomorrow as well as a look at some of the more entertaining trade deadline takes from around the blogosphere.
In terms of winners, I liked what Detroit, San Jose, Philadelphia and Vancouver did, and to a lesser extent Buffalo and Dallas. It's tougher at this point to pick out losers, per se, but it does feel like the Ducks missed the boat on improving on their suddenly struggling team. Tampa Bay and Ottawa could have also benefited from adding more pieces than they did.
