NHL trade deadline winners and losers

by Alexandra Giubelli

As my article last week about the NHL trade deadline was once again cut due to “space management,” here is a list of the winners and losers of the NHL trade deadline:

-The Phoenix Coyotes are winners, seeing as how Wojtek Wolski has scored two goals and one assist in two games and Lee Stempniak had one goal and an assist at his first game with the Phoenix coyotes.

-Washington Capitals are also winners, as their newest acquisition, Scott Walker, has accumulated two goals (one of them being a game winning goal) in his first game.

– The last club to join this list is the Los Angeles Kings, as Frederik Modin had a goal and an assist.

Other notable players, who have made an immediate impact with their new team, are:

– Lubomir Visnovsky from the Anaheim Ducks who has one goal

– Aaron Ward also with the Ducks with one assist

– Derek Morris from the Phoenix Coyotes with one assist

And now the losers of the trade deadline:

-Petteri Nokelainen has come up with nothing but some useless penalties in three games for the Ducks
– Steve Staois of the Calgary Flames has only one assist.
-Joe Corvo of the Washington Capitals also has only one assist.
-And last but not least, Illya Kovalchuck, who seems unable to score goals with the defensive (and boring) style of play that New Jersey Devils promote.

Don’t miss this week:
– The duel between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils on Friday March 12th at 7 p.m.
– The war on Saturday, as the Montreal Canadiens play against the longtime rival the Boston Bruins at 7 p.m.
– The first F1 Grand Prix of the year at Bahrain at 7 a.m. An interesting race, as we’ll see Michael Schumacher racing for Mercedes.

Pointless information of the week:

Because a lot of NFL players were overseas during World War Two, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles combined to become The Steagles.
