Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!

The 2024 NHL Trade Deadline is tomorrow afternoon at 3:00PM, and teams didn't want to wait until then, and a flurry of activity happened yesterday. Except in Toronto, but you just wait. Ol' Bradley Pizza has something up his sleeve.

Let's skip the blah blah and hit the links.

Late Tuesday night the Vegas Golden Knights added Anthony Mantha from Washington to the team for a 2nd and 4th round pick.

Vegas Golden Knights Acquire Anthony Mantha
The Vegas Golden Knights have made a trade to bring in Anthony Mantha from the Washington Capitals.

The Ottawa Senators did what we all expected and traded Vladimir Tarasenko, to division rival Florida Panthers. All for a conditional 4th and a 3rd.

Sens Trade Vladimir Tarasenko to Florida for Picks
Tarasenko had 17 goals and 41 points in his 57 games with Ottawa.

Ottawa retains 50% of his salary, and the 4th becomes a 3rd if the Panthers win the cup. And that Senators blog ends the story with a line about the Leafs, because of course.

The Colorado Avalanche made two deals, the first was with the Philadelphia Flyers, bringing in defender Sean Walker and a 5th round pick and sending out Ryan Johansen and a 1st round pick.

TRADE: Avalanche Acquire Defenseman Sean Walker; Johansen Headed The Other Way
Just a week after the Colorado Avalanche missed out on Chris Tanev, they’ve gone and acquired a different right-shot defenseman. Sean Walker, who has had a tremendous season with the Philadelphia Flyers, is headed to the Avalanche. Colorado will also received a 2026 fifth round pick in the trade. In return, the Avalanche are sending […]

The oddest part? The Flyers put Johansen on waivers right away.

The other Avalanche deal was a straight up hockey trade with Bowen Byram leaving Colorado and heading to Buffalo for Casey Mittelstadt.

TRADE: Avalanche Go Big, Acquire Casey Mittelstadt For Bowen Byram
Colorado Avalanche general manager Chris MacFarland was a very busy man on Wednesday. Just a few minutes after news broke that the Avalanche had moved on from Ryan Johansen and acquired defenseman Sean Walker from the Philadelphia Flyers, the other domino fell. A move that we’ve discussed at CHN for well over a month actually […]

The Edmonton Oilers made a big deal, making a three way deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Anaheim Ducks.

The Adam Henrique, Sam Carrick trade is a clear-cut win for the Oilers
<span style=“font-weight: 400;”>As I watched Leon Draisaitl hammer a p…

Oilers Get: Adam Henrique, Sam Carrick, prospect Ty Taylor, and a 7th round pick
Ducks Get: Edmonton's 1st and 5th, 50% of Henriques salary
Lightning Get: Edmonton's 4th, 25% of Henrique's salary

I don't like the Oilers getting better, but at least they continue their tradition of collecting old Leafs players.

Finally, the New York Rangers brought in Alex Wennberg from Seattle for a 2nd and 4th round pick.

Kraken Trade Alex Wennberg to Rangers for 2024 2nd Round, 2025 4th Round Picks
Wednesday afternoon ESPN’s Emily Kaplan and TSN’s Pierre LeBrun reported that the Seattle Kraken will be sending centerman Alex Wennberg to the New York Rangers– and retaining 50%
