Friday Open Thread: Trades Roll In

NHL: San Jose Sharks at Edmonton Oilers Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

Hi everyone, I wasn’t able to slap the Hot Links together, but the NHL has been pretty busy this morning.

First, the biggest trade so far. Matt Duchene is going to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for middling prospects and at least one first round pick.

Then, the Panthers got Vincent Praplan from the Sharks for some future considerations.

Then, the Redwings send Nick Jensen to the Washington Capitals is exchange for way too much. They got themselves a 2nd, and Madison Bowey for Jenses, a middling pending UFA, and a 5th. The Caps overpaid quite a bit in my eyes here.

And in some Edmonton Oilers related news, Jesse Puljujarvi and his agent Markus Lehto are getting a second opinion on his fake injury after Keith Gretzky had decided that it’s long-term.

So, enjoy that, and use the comment section.
