It took a while for things to really materialize at the trade deadline, but when things finally got rolling, there was some interesting moves.

Evander Kane was picked up by the San Jose Sharks for a part-time roster player/prospect in Danny O'Regan and then two picks, including a 1st round pick in 2019, if Kane was to re-sign in San Jose.  If Kane doesn't sign, it will turn into a 2nd round pick.

The Sharks are in a Pacific Division playoff spot, currently sitting 2nd in the division, so this move will shore up their offense, adding some much needed depth, when it comes to the spring dance.  It will be interesting to see who he lines up with on the roster.

Unfortunately, this is another trade that really has no bearing on the hockey pool money situation, but it should make Eric's team just a little bit better, as one of his better offensive tools will be going to a club that likes to score goals in bushels.  Eric's team is looking to move into the top 20 before the end of the year, which is only 3 points away, at the start of play on Monday night.
