Trade deadline madness, day one open thread

For those of you without Twitter, today was a very eventful day as the trade deadline approaches tomorrow. The Rangers were quiet, with all focus on Ryan Callahan’s situation, but in a day where nothing much was expected, everything happened. None were on par with the St. Louis/Buffalo deal on Friday though.

The biggest trade was announced at 4:45pm EST, when Roberto Luongo went back to Florida for Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha Jacob Markstrom and Shawn Matthias. The full list of trades is below (or here if you prefer), and will be updated as things break on Twitter. Any moves the Rangers make will be bolded, and newer trades will be after the jump.

  • The Florida Panthers Jacob Markstrom and Shawn Matthias to Vancouver for Roberto Luongo, with Vancouver eating some salary, and Steven Anthony.
  • The Philadelphia Flyers traded Matt Mangene, a 2014 3rd round pick, and a 2015 2nd round pick for defenseman Andrew MacDonald of the Islanders.
  • The Montreal Canadiens sent a 2014 5th round pick to Florida for Mike Weaver.
  • Dustin Penner was sent from the Anaheim Ducks to the Washington Capitals for a 2014 4th round pick.
  • That 2014 4th round pick Anaheim acquired was used to acquire Stephane Robidas from the Dallas Stars. The pick can move to a 2014 3rd round pick if the Ducks make it to the Conference Finals.
  • Anaheim also sent Viktor Fasth to Edmonton for a 2014 5th round pick and a 2015 3rd round pick.
  • Edmonton then sent Ilya Bryzgalov to the Minnesota Wild for a 2014 4th round pick.
  • The Ottawa Senators sent Jeff Costello to Vancouver for Patrick Cullen.

  • The Carolina Hurricanes have re-signed goalie Anton Khuboden to a two-year, $4.5 million deal ($2.25 million annually).
  • The Phoenix Coyotes have sent David Rundblad and Mathieu Brisebois to the Chicago Blackhawks for a 2014 2nd round pick.
  • The Coyotes obtained Martin Erat and John Mitchell from Washington for Chris Brown, Rostislav Klesla, and a 2015 4th round pick.

Use this as your open thread for the night to discuss the deadline madness. Expect some news out of the Rangers when Cally re-signs. Other than that, I’d expect them to be quiet.

    Rangers should pick up both Corvo and Conacher as depth. They can both be had for nothing

      They’d have to dump contracts first. There’s a 50 contract limit, and they are at 48. Would severely limit their flexibility for other moves.

        I don’t know that there is any advantage in staying under 50 at this point. Once the deadline is passed, they can’t acquire any other players not on their reserve list. And I don’t think there is any Kreider or Zuccarello on the list that could help. Keeping the option to add Fogarty or Nieves for example seems pointless. Not saying they should go to 50 for the sake of going to 50, but I don’t see any reason to avoid it tomorrow.

          If they claim 2 guys, that’s less room to maneuver for the 3pm deadline.

      good idea

    Still hoping for addition by subtraction – deal Callahan and put Miller on the second line. Get a short term upgrade and future assets to boot.

    hope they trade boyle and bring up lindberg

      Boyle is valuable. He brings the other intangibles to the team and no glitter or flash. He wins face offs, cycles well…kills penalties…is on the right line as a 4th liner …no he is a keeper

        Boyle is a work horse who does his job very well. I just don’t understand why people want to get rid of him….

        • Mar 5, 2014 at 6:07 am

          Because he can b replaced by Dom Moore, and has trade value?

  • Mar 4, 2014 at 6:14 pm

    Viktor Fasth has not changed his name to Viktor Fast yet?

  • Mar 4, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    That khudobin signing makes me think they are trying to out cam ward

    • Mar 4, 2014 at 7:29 pm

      For sure, but he’s pretty unmovable now. His value is long gone.

      Speaking of, it’s been a crazy goalie trade-fest this year.

    Fun fact…Anisimov has 17 goals and 14 assists…just scored number 17…watching the Jackets vs Stars game

    Larry Brooks reporting Kessler is not waiving his NTC to come to the Rangers. That pipe dream is over

  • Mar 4, 2014 at 8:59 pm

    Garrett Mitchell, no?
