Trade deadline winners

It's time for a brief break for me, but I'll be back with wrap up information and to fill out some of the posts below that came in at the end:

And I should add a big thanks to everyone for coming by. It's been a record day already in terms of traffic, and the polls have been busy.

More to come!

Not good for Montreal and Ottawa fans...

Or anyone else in the Eastern Conference. Pittsburgh is a FORCE.

Are we counting Forsberg? If so, I'd say Colorado won. Otherwise, I think it's pretty clear that Pittsburgh did (Pittsburgh may have even if we do count Forsberg). I'd love to see Conklin get a Cup as a starter.

Biggest loser? How about TSN? Biggest day of the season and their site goes under.

I pick Tampa Bay for most improved, although I couldn't enter that into the poll (maybe it's Firefox...). I like what Washington did too - at a very low cost - and between the Caps, Colorado and Philly I'm impressed with the number of current outsiders being very aggressive. And yet the Leafs only managed to move three guys...

Did I miss the part where Hal Gill became the answer on D? Last year the Pens lost because they couldn't get the puck out of their own end, not because they didn't have enough talented forwards.

twoeightnine - are you really surprised? 80% of the time I go to their site I get an error message while it's trying to load and have to refresh at least once.

Pittsburgh is scary now, wouldn't want to be the team that meets them in the first round. I was very shocked when I saw that trade, especially since the news all day was that Hossa was going to MTL or OTT.

adam c - Gill is the answer.

twoeightnine - TSN has some pretty short-sighted people working IT. Every year they are unprepared for high volume days. I got in early but the feed kept cutting out all day. It's unbelievable.

I know Gill's been relatively steady for the Leafs this year, but I'm not convinced. If their #4 or #5 guy can go play an important role on a contender, why are they so bad? Would Gill even hit the ice for New Jersey, Ottawa or Montreal?

He's a big guy and he stays within himself, but he's not a good skater or passer and he's not really very physical. There are a lot of fast, forechecking teams in the East. No one should want to play Crosby and Malkin in the first round, but I don't think the trade deadline has made them much scarier than they were before.
