After a marathon day at the office, Elliotte Friedman and Sean McIndoe join the show to reflect on all of the trades (and maybe more notably, all of the near-trades that fell through) that we saw unfold all of the way up to the deadline.
We discuss the premium the Dallas Stars paid for Kris Russell with Jim Nill uncharacteristically finding himself on the losing end of a trade, the Canucks decision to hold onto their aging trade pieces, and the various teams with uncertain futures that ultimately stood pat.
