Wheeling and Dealing

Today is the day when 30 GM’s get no sleep in attempts to acquire the assets they feel will make their team Stanley Cup champions either this season or down the road.

We’ve talked about what the Jets may or may not do today but here we will break down each deal as it happens with the effect it will have on Winnipeg.

By 4pm Central time we’ll know if Rick Nash got moved, did Toronto acquire a goalie or other players that may help them regain 8th place and what other moves were made by the teams fighting with the Jets.

As the deadline has come and gone the Jets made a waiver claim picking up D Grant Clitsome from Columbus and traded away D Johnny Oduya to the Chicago Blackhawks for a 2nd and 3rd round pick in this years entry draft. If the Jets are to make the playoffs it will be with the players they have had all year, time will tell if it was the right move but I’m pretty happy about it.


Trade updated @ 14:55

To Vancouver

F Andrew Gordon

To Anahiem

D Sebastian Erixon

And with that trade deadline is over and it was as uneventful as any trade deadline has ever been.


Trade updated @ 14:45

To Vancouver

F Zach Kassian
D Marc-Andre Gragnani

To Buffalo

F Cody Hodgson
D Alexander Sulzer

Interesting that former Moose and highly touted prospect Cody Hodgson gets moved but has little bearing on the Jets


Trade updated @ 14:45

To Toronto

D Mark Fraser

To Anahiem

F Dale Mitchell

Mark Fraser adds some depth to the blue line in Toronto but it’s unlikely to shake the Buds from their slump.


Trade updated @ 14:45

To New York Rangers

D John Scott

To Chicago

5th round pick

Little to no influence on the Jets


Trade updated @ 14:45

To Boston

D Greg Zanon

To Minnesota

D Steve Kampfer

The only way this has any effect on the Jets is if they face the Bruins in the playoffs as Zanon gives them a reliable shot blocking presence on the back-end of their rotation.


Trade updated @ 14:45

To Boston

F Brian Rolston
D Mike Mottau

To New York Islanders

F Yannick Riendeau
D Marc Cantin

Interesting to see the Bruins take on Rolston’s contract in a trade when he was waived earlier. Other than that he gives the B’s some scoring depth that could bite the Jets if they meet in the playoffs.


Trade updated @ 14:45

To Nashville

F Paul Gaustad
4th round pick (2012)

To Buffalo

1st round pick (2012)

The Sabre’s got the first rounder they wanted for Gaustad, which is likely why the Jets didn’t make a move on a similar type player.


Trade updated @ 13:15

To Winnipeg

2nd & 3rd round pick (2013)

To Chicago

D Johnny Oduya

There’s no surprise that Johnny O was traded away. This was the worst kept secret out there that he would be the one to likely be traded away. With the Jets depth on the blue line, this trade will likely have minimal impact on the current season, however look for those draft picks to come in handy.


Trade updated @ 12:45

To Vancouver

F Sami Pahlsson

To Columbus

4th round pick (2012)
4th round pick (2012)

No reason to even talk about this deal, it’s about as exciting for Jets fans as the trade deadline was for hockey fans.


Trade updated @ 12:45

To Ottawa

D Matt Gilroy

To Tampa Bay

D Brian Lee

The Jets are chasing the Sens but they are most likely out of reach. Acquiring Matt Gilroy gives them some more depth on the back end.


Trade updated @ 12:45

To San Jose

F Daniel Winnik
F TJ Galiardi
7th round pick (2013)

To Colorado

F Jamie McGinn
F Mike Connolly
F Michael Sgarbossa

An all Western conference trade this may be of note to Jets fans simply because it was the biggest (number of pieces moved) of the day.


Trade updated @ 12:45

To Toronto

F Carter Ashton

To Tampa Bay

D Keith Aulie

The Winnipeg born Carter Ashton should be a nice player for the Leafs in a few years but he’s got little to do with the outcome of the Leafs seasons this year.


Trade updated @ 12:21

To Winnipeg

D Grant Clitsome

To Columbus

WAIVERS

With the appearance of Jack Johnson in Columbus, Clitsome’s time came to an end. It would appear through the acquisition of an offensively minded defenseman that rumours of Johnny Oduya being traded are coming closer to reality.


Trade updated @ 11:56

To Edmonton

D Nick Schultz

To Minnesota

F Tom Gilbert

Possibility that Schultz may make it to Winnipeg in time for tonight’s game. Otherwise this has no bearing on the Jets.


Trade updated @ 11:47

To Tampa Bay

D Mike Commodore

To Detroit

Conditional 7th Round Pick (2013)

This deal has little effect on the Jets, the Lighting have fallen far enough behind that if the Jets have to worry about dropping below them they have bigger issues.


Trade updated @ 9:37

To Nashville

F Andrei Kostitsyn

To Montreal

2nd Round pick (2013)
Conditional 5th Round Pick (2013)

This deal has little effect on the Jets other than to confirm that Montreal has given up this season.
