30 minutes that shook the entire NHL.

Today started out pretty sleepy. Rumours of deals for some star players have been circulating for days, but it wasn't expected any one of them would pan out before July 1, let alone 3 major deals, all within 30 minutes!

First, Taylor Hall was traded by the Oiiers for Adam Larsson. Then, minutes later....

P.K. Subban, the face of the Canadiens franchise, was traded to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber.

How the Oilers and Canadiens did not end up trading Hall for Subban is going to wind up in a chapter in someones book. How either team could even make these trades is going to need several chapters in someone's book.

Then, minutes later again, another bomb dropped,

The most hyped pending free agent in years chose not to become a free agent. Steven Stamkos, who the hockey media all but confirmed would never stay in Tampa, signed a new 8 year contract to stay in Tampa.

Winners!

I don't know what to do. I don't think any of us do. Where did this come from? What is happening?

Devils Acquire Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson - All About The Jersey
This is possibly the biggest trade in Devils history. A 1-for-1 swap for a former #1 overall pick and #4 overall pick don't happen often.

The captain is reportedly sticking around.

Losers!

Taylor Hall Traded to New Jersey for Adam Larsson - The Copper & Blue
It's official. Both the trade and the reality that the Oilers are the stupidest hockey team on the planet.
