This is a four-part division by division look at what each team did at Wednesday's trade deadline. Who did good and who did bad?
The Red Wings sold for the first time in 25 years, the Leafs, Panthers, Bruins, and Canadiens are all trying to capitalize on a weak division but didn't go all in like the Senators did, and the Lightning did what they could to try to manage a cap situation that's going to make this offseason stressful.

Steve Yzerman had himself a hell of a deadline. Facing the reality of not being able to afford one of his three key restricted free agents, Jonathan Drouin, Ondrej Palat, and Tyler Johnson, this summer due to a tight cap crunch, Yzerman unloaded the entirety of Valtteri Filppula's $5 million cap hit next season on the Flyers. All they had to do was take on Mark Streit and sweeten the pot with a fourth and seventh round pick, and that fourth was immediately replaced when Streit was flipped to Pittsburgh. Yzerman also got what he could from soon-to-be free agents Brian Boyle and Ben Bishop, though neither returned what you would have expected a few weeks ago. Overall, it was a good deadline for the selling Lightning, who made strides in mitigating their cap difficulties and gained assets for players who weren't part of the long-term plan.
- Byron Froese and a 2017 second round pick to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Brian Boyle.
- Frank Corrado to the Pittsburgh Penguins for Eric Fehr, Steve Olesky, and a 2017 fourth round pick.
- IN: Brian Boyle, Eric Fehr, Steve Olesky, and a 2017 fourth.
- OUT: Byron Froese, Frank Corrado, and a 2017 second.
The Leafs are in a position they probably didn't expect to be at the deadline: Pushing for a playoff spot. The rebuild has accelerated quicker than most imagined in Toronto, so Lou Lamoriello made an upgrade to the team without deviating far from the build for the future model. They sent one of their three second round picks to Tampa Bay for Brian Boyle, who will be a welcomed upgrade over Ben Smith in the fourth line centre role. They also re-gained some draft pick capital by taking on Eric Fehr's contract from the Penguins, though a fourth rounder isn't much of a prize for doing the handling.
