Puck Daddy’s 2014 NHL Trade Deadline Live Blog, Hour 7

3:40 p.m. ET -- Jaroslav Halak to the Washington Capitals. Where does that leave Braden Holtby and Michal Neuvirth? Is one heading to Buffalo?

3:30 p.m. ET -- David Legwand, the first draft pick in Nashville Predators history, has finally moved on. After waiving his no-trade clause, Legwand will go home to Detroit and finish the year with the Red Wings. He grew up there and played junior hockey with Plymouth of the OHL, so you can imagine it was an easy decision to say yes to.

Nashville will receive Patrick Eaves, a prospect and and a third rounder, per TSN's Gord Miller.

The Red Wings were hoping for some center depth and they got it in Legwand. With Pavel Datsyuk banged up and Henrik Zetterberg out until the playoffs, this move should help. Nashville sends a respected veteran off to go attempt to win a Stanley Cup. One Milbury.

Two big deals just before the deadline: Matt Moulson heads to Minnesota and Thomas Vanek has been dealt to the Montreal Canadiens. More on those in a bit.

3:15 p.m. ET -- The Penguins are reportedly close to a move and it's not for Ryan Kesler or Thomas Vanek or Matt Moulson. According to Pierre LeBrun, Pittsburgh is close to landing forward Lee Stempniak from the Phoenix Coyotes. Stempniak has 8 goals and 23 points in 53 games with the Calgary Flames this season.

Speaking of Kesler, it appears he'll be a Canuck through at least this season. According to Elliotte Friedman, Vancouver GM Mike Gillis is done for the day. A Kesler deal will be explored in the off-season. Same goes for Mike Cammalleri, who could get and extension with the Flames.

3:05 p.m. ET -- The Rangers have added to their blue line bringing on pending UFA Raphael Diaz from the Canucks for a fifth rounder. Single Milbury here as the Blueshirts add defensive depth.

3:01 p.m. ET -- The deadline has officially passed, but there still may be some news coming out post 3 p.m. ET as deals could get tied up in the trade call process with Central Registry. Thomas Vanek, Matt Moulson, Ryan Kesler are still with their teams, as we know. Much could change any minute at this point.

One deal announced prior to the deadline was Andrej Meszaros heading to the Boston Bruins from Philadelphia for a third round pick. The Bruins have been looking to fill the void left by Dennis Seidenberg's injury.

Meszaros is a UFA this summer, so it's a low risk, high reward for the Bruins. One Milbury.

As CapGeek points out, moving Meszaros out means that the Flyers could add as much as a $6.4 million cap hit for a move. It was reported earlier that Philadelphia was out on Kesler, but could Paul Holmgren just have been waiting to clear some room to bring him on?
