A surprising number of deals have happened in the two day prior to the deadline, let's hope it is a sign of things to come. The biggest deal so far is the trade of Alex Ponikarovsky to Pittsburgh in exchange for Martin Skoula and Luca Caputi. Three other Canadian teams made deals yesterday; the biggest of them was Andy Sutton going to Ottawa in exchange for a 2nd round pick. New Montreal Canadiens GM Pierre Gauthier made his second deal in a few weeks as he dealt Matt D'Agostini to St. Louis for Aaron Palushaj and the Oilers acquired Matt Marquardt from the Bruins for Cody Wild. Here are the other minor deals that happened yesterday:
-Anaheim trades Steve Kampfer to Boston for a conditional 4th round pick.
-Anaheim trades Nick Boynton to Chicago for future considerations.
-NY Islanders trade Brett Westgarth to San Jose for a conditional pick.
