A month ago, we watched as one of the most interesting trade deadlines in recent memory unfolded. It appeared as if the deadline itself was going to be relatively anticlimactic since most of the big name players were moved before the big day. Much to everyone’s surprise, deadline day saw a flurry of moves with a handful of surprising names swapping jerseys.
How do some of those interesting moves look a month later? Let’s take a look (at 10 of them!)

Other than the Stanley Cup deciding game, the biggest moment of this NHL season will arguably be who wins the draft lottery.
In a regular draft class that wouldn't be the case, but this season is anything but ordinary with the generational-looking Connor McDavid to be had at first overall and a first-overall-pick-in-any-other-year player in Jack Eichel waiting to go second.

Spring has sprung, the playoffs are almost here, it's Wrestlemania Sunday, and if that wasn't enough it's time for First Star, Worst Star!

We’re approaching what could be a pretty slow summer for goalie moves. There really aren’t that many No. 1 candidates approaching free agency or plausibly available via trade; at the same time 80 percent of the league – 24 teams – has a legitimate starter under contract and two more clubs have one entering restricted free agency.

Earlier this week, I took a look at the playoff races in both the Western and Eastern Conferences — the NHL’s version of March Madness. Because of the 2015 draft likely being the best class of rookies in over a decade, the race to the bottom has become just as interesting as the battles for playoff positions for many fans.
With a couple weeks left to go in the season, we have four teams who have truly stood out as the best tankers in the Connor McDavid sweepstakes. Something to note, the league is changing the draft lottery format this year, and again next year to deter teams from trying to lose games. This year, they’ve lowered the odds for the worst teams in the league to have their magic ball drawn, and next year they’re drawing balls to determine the first three draft slots.
Anyways, teams are just trying to be as bad as possible so even if they don’t get McDavid, they can still get the best consolation prize possible.
