Big, big day yesterday, with four trades going down. Let's recap:

Trade #1:

San Jose Sharks get:
Maxim Letunov
2017 6th round pick

Arizona Coyotes get:
2016 4th round pick
2017 3rd round pick

Leafs Impact: None

Trade #2:

Nashville Predators get:
2016 3rd round pick

Buffalo Sabres get:
Rights to pending UFA Jimmy Vesey

Reactions:

Sabres acquire rights to Jimmy Vesey from Nashville in exchange for third round pick - Die By The Blade

Leafs Impact: The Maple Leafs were looking into signing the younger Vesey brother. They'vbe drafted Nolan Vesey and their father works as a scout for the Leafs. What we have here is a potential for another Babcock situation, and dear lord I want to make Mike Harrington drive to Toronto to cry again. Vesey has already come out and stated he's going to test free agency, but this gives the Sabres more wooing time.

Trade #3:

New York Rangers get:
2016 6th round pick
2017 4th round pick (if Yandle signs)

Florida Panthers get:
Rights to pending UFA Keith Yandle

Reactions:

Panthers acquire negotiating rights to D Keith Yandle from Rangers - Litter Box Cats

Leafs Impact: A division rival may get stronger on the blueline, and no one wants that.

Trade #4:

Anaheim Ducks get:
2016 1st round pick 
2017 2nd round pick

Toronto Maple Leafs get:
Frederik Anderson, who was a pending UFA but signed a 5 year deal with the Leafs right after the trade.
