Atlanta

McKEON ANALYSIS: Without argument, this is the most surprising and risky deal of the day. The Penguins have paid a lot to get a rental along with a journeyman forward in addition to taking a chemistry risk by shipping a pair of popular forwards out of the lineup. Read more/comment

Tampa Bay

McKEON ANALYSIS: The Dallas Stars made a big strike, landing 27-year-old Brad Richards, who they can put in the middle of a scoring line. The Stars were undersized at the center position and probably were not going to match-up well in the tough Western Conference playoff picture with Mike Ribeiro for instance going up against a Ryan Getzlaf or Joe Thornton.

Steve Bernier
(1st Round pick)

Buffalo

McKEON ANALYSIS: Brian Campbell is a big piece for the Sharks because he fits now and fits later, much the way last year's deadline-day deal for Craig Rivet from Montreal worked out. Campbell should improve a San Jose power play that, with the same personnel as last year, has dipped from among the top two in the league to the bottom third. Read more/comment

Columbus

McKEON ANALYSIS: A reunion is continuing in Denver where a day after luring Peter Forsberg back, the Avalanche have re-acquired veteran defenseman Adam Foote, who won two Cups (1996 and 2001) with Colorado before moving on to Columbus. Foote, 36, is due to be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, so this appears to be a rental situation. Read more/comment

Montreal

McKEON ANALYSIS: In a move that will impact goaltending for two teams, the Canadiens have decided the time is now for 20-year-old rookie Carey Price. Hey, it worked for Patrick Roy in 1986. Read more/comment

Sergei Fedorov

Ted Ruth

Columbus

McKEON ANALYSIS: Alexander Ovechkin is united with one of his Russian childhood heroes as the 38-year-old Sergei Fedorov hopes to add something to the late-season Capitals' surge. The Blue Jackets are turning their roster over to a young core and it's no surprise the veterans due to be unrestricted free agents are on the move Tuesday. Read more/comment

Martin Lapointe

ACQUIRED
(6th round pick)

Chicago

McKEON ANALYSIS: Martin Lapointe gives the Senators playoff experience and the kind of gritty performer that's important during the postseason. This is the kind of deal that can make a bigger impact than meets the eye. Read more/comment

Carolina
ACQUIRED
Tuomo Ruutu

ACQUIRED
Andrew Ladd
Logo
Chicago

McKEON ANALYSIS: This is a trade of wingers who have underachieved and the hope is a change of scenery will help the situation. The 6-foot, 200-pound Tuomo Ruutu, 25, is a pest and is at his best when he's getting under the skin of opponents. Read more/comment

David LeNeveu
Fredrik Sjostrom
Josh Gratton
(Conditional pick)

Phoenix

McKEON ANALYSIS: Marcel Hossa joined his brother, Marian, in changing addresses. He and goaltending prospect Al Montoya, made expendable with Henrik Lundqvist signing a long-term deal recently, head to Phoenix where former assistant Rangers GM and current Coyotes GM certainly knows what he's getting.

Tampa Bay

McKEON ANALYSIS: The Predators picked up a rental in the 31-year-old Jan Hlavac, who is due to be an unrestricted free agent on July 1 after earning $700,000 this season. Read more/comment

Joe Motzko
Logo
Atlanta

McKEON ANALYSIS: In a trade of late-blooming forward prospects, the Capitals get 26-year-old center Alexandre Giroux, who scored 42 goals in 67 with the Hershey Bears of the AHL and the Thrashers get 27-year-old winger Joe Motzko, who scored 28 and 27 goals, respectively, for the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL several years ago.

Los Angeles

McKEON ANALYSIS: Purely a deal for goaltending depth in the organization. The Ducks are set obviously with Jean-Sebastien Giguere as their No. 1 and Jonas Hiller as their backup. Read more/comment

ACQUIRED
Chad Kilger

ACQUIRED
(3rd round pick)

Toronto

McKEON ANALYSIS: Chad Kilger, once a fourth overall pick, is moving on to his eighth organization. The 6-foot-4, 224-pound left wing brings size and experience to a Panthers room that is clearly in need of changing the mix. Read more/comment

ACQUIRED
(3rd round pick)

N.Y. Islanders

McKEON ANALYSIS: Marc-Andre Bergeron is an undersized, offensive defenseman who provides the already deep Ducks with more depth on their blueline, and it returns the 27-year-old to the Western Conference where he enjoyed a degree of success in Edmonton. Read more/comment

(6th round pick)

N.Y. Islanders

McKEON ANALYSIS: Simon, 36, has three points and 43 penalty minutes in 28 games. The Wild already have tough forwards Derek Boogaard and Todd Fedoruk. It's hard to imagine coach Jacques Lemaire wants all three in the lineup, but he certainly now has options. Read more/comment

(2nd round pick)
(4th round pick)

Los Angeles

McKEON ANALYSIS: Brad Stuart is on the move again, headed to his fourth team in two seasons. No surprise the Red Wings would be looking for help on the back end when you consider they are currently without Nicklas Lidstrom, Brian Rafalski and Chris Chelios, and Niklas Kronwall is fresh off an injury.

(5th round pick)

Toronto

McKEON ANALYSIS: The 6-foot-7, 250-pound Gill, 32, brings size and experience to a Pittsburg team that is clearly bulking up for a major run. Gill was part of the dismantling of veteran players with no future in Toronto. Read more/comment

McKEON ANALYSIS: In a swap of checking forwards, the Capitals pick up some grit with the acquisition of Matt Cooke, who was somewhat of a controversial figure during his time in Vancouver. Read more/comment

San Jose

McKEON ANALYSIS: Rob Davison isn't going to make a big impact on the Island, but he might get an opportunity to play, which is more than you can say about his last couple of seasons in San Jose. Read more/comment

Karlis Skrastins
3rd round pick

Florida

McKEON ANALYSIS: The 6-1, 212-pound Salei has 160 points in 741 career games. Skrastins broke Tim Horton's mark for consecutive games played by a defenseman in 2007. Read more/comment

(2008 5th round pick)

Toronto

McKEON ANALYSIS: The veteran Wade Belak plays both on defense and forward, but the biggest asset be brings to the Panthers is toughness. The 31-yaer-old, due to be an unrestricted free agent who is making $625,000 this season, will be playing for his fourth NHL franchise. Read more/comment
