NHL Trade Deadline 2011: Recapping the Trades, Signings and Action

It's been a slow day for the NHL.

Most deadline days are exciting, fast-paced and extreme. However, due to a ton of action in the days leading up to February 28, that was not the case this season.

With just 16 trades, the action today was slower than molasses in a Canadian January.

There weren't many big players on the move either, which contributed to the lack of energy.

When one of the more interesting points of a day is TSN news anchor Jay Onrait being on Skype in a bathrobe, you know things aren't moving along very quickly.

All that aside, there were a few solid deals that went down. Some teams acquired key players that will help in a playoff run, some teams found a player who will boost them into playoff contention, and some had a full-out firesale.

Some teams re-signed key players or picked up an asset off waivers.

With that said, here is a recap of every deal that went down today.
