Steve Tambellini has received a contract extension from the Edmonton Oilers. He met all their criteria: experience losing hockey games, history of bad trades, and poor free agent signings. It's a match made in heaven.
Today's Trade Deadline couldn't have been more boring as only 15 deals were struck with the biggest one coming from the Vancouver Canucks and Buffalo Sabres which saw Cody Hodgson and Zach Kassian swapped jerseys. The Trade Deadline day I will say is over-hyped but it has been proven to be one of the most important days in the NHL season, as smart teams have added the right pieces and have went on to win Stanley Cups.
I get excited every year for the Trade Deadline and I don't think that will change anytime soon. Now that is over, here are today's winners and losers.
