Central Division Weekly Roundup: Trade Deadline Aftermath

The Hurricanes’ trade deadline was silent as expected. Don Waddell doesn’t like making rental acquisitions and with the team playing so well, they didn’t need to bring in new players and mess with any chemistry down the stretch. It certainly doesn’t help that they laid two eggs against the Red Wings to give up their advantage over the Lightning and their position to possibly win the President’s Trophy as the NHL’s top team in the regular season.

The Hurricanes did make one move to ship out Haydn Fleury to the Anaheim Ducks for Jani Hakanpaa and a sixth-round pick.
