Trade Overview

Here's an overview on the 2012 trade deadline

Biggest Trade

Cody Hodgson and Alexander sulzer to Buffalo for Zach Kassian and M-A Garagani.
- cody hodgson was in the run for the Calder Trophy and all of a sudden he gets traded. But the X-factor of this trade might actually be the two forwards but Garagani. He played amazing during the playoffs and has been struggling so far this year. puck moving defensemen are rare so he might make or break this trade.

Worst Trade

Paul Gaustad and 4th round pick to Nashville for a 1st round pick.
- what is buffalo thiniking. they are the smallest team in the entire league and they decide to get even smaller. they trade away Zach kassian (6-3) and Paul Gaustad (6-5) and they just lost all size up front. Buffalo completely loses out on this trade but they better draft a big forward in the up coming draft.

Trade that didn't happen.

obvioulsy the nash rumours. there was so much hype about Nash and he doesn't get traded. jackets GM Howson said Nash asked for a trade but there wasn't an offer that was good for the organization. rumours says that nash isn't changing the list so the nash rumours will come back on during Free Agency

More thoughts

less trades than last year (15 this year, 16 last year). two hours between first deadline trade and second one. 
Teams that stayed out - Calgary, Washington, Philly, pittsburgh, carolina, dallas
