Every team had a wish list heading into the NHL trade deadline.
But just like kids with big dreams at Christmas, there's bound to be a few things not crossed off.
Most teams—27 of the 30—got involved in the two-day frenzy, with plenty of big names changing uniforms. The Ryan Miller trade between the Buffalo Sabres and St. Louis Blues got things rolling on trade-deadline eve, but even bigger names were sent packing on Wednesday, including a captain-for-captain deal between the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning.
After the dust settled, more than 30 players were on the move.
Some teams will be left feeling better about their decisions and Stanley Cup chances going forward, while others could be regretting the moves they didn't make.
A space here for a puck-moving defenseman, a gap there for a stay-at-home rearguard; missing out on that scoring winger or gritty body banger you're sure will make the difference come playoff time—there are plenty of pieces that have to perfectly come together for a team to make a serious run in the spring, and not everyone was able to fill their needs.
