2010 NHL Trade Deadline open thread

This day is often considered "Hockey Christmas."  It can be crazy, fun, heartbreaking and promising all in the span of about four hours.  Keeping with tradition here since the launch of the blog, I now bring you Pensburgh's third annual trade deadline open thread.

Monday morning we caught a glimpse of Ray Shero at work once again when he traded away a second round pick for Jordan Leopold.  Last night, just as the Pens and Sabres wrapped things up, we found out the Pens acquired Alexei Ponikarovsky from the Leafs in exchange for Martin Skoula and Luca Caputi. 

So does this mean a slow trade deadline day?  Who knows.

These are the fun things worth talking about in the comments.  I'd also like to mention that any sort of Penguins move will be worthy of its own post.  Otherwise, we'll keep moves from the other 29 teams within the comments, unless there is just a ridiculous move that somehow poses as a counter to Pittsburgh (for example, if the Devils traded for Kovalchuk today I'd address it).

With that said, any sort of lead or rumor you come across - outside of anything "reported" on Hockey Buzz - feel free to add it to the mix.  Toss on the link if possible and let the convo go from there.

It's pretty exciting to follow today so I hope you all consider hanging out here for a good part of the day. 

Now, let's see what the Pens and the rest of the league have in store before the 3:00 deadline.
