NHL Draft 2011 Trade Analysis: Who Won and Who Lost Every Trade?

At the NHL Draft, there are almost always a number of trades to go along with the young prospects about to realize their dreams of becoming a professional athlete.

General managers are trying to tweak, rebuild or reshape their rosters for the future, and the draft is a great place to do that. All 30 GM’s are in the same place at the same time, so consummating trades becomes that much easier.

There were a number of trades that took place during the two-day draft period this year and one other trade involving a first-round lottery pick that was made official the day before the draft.

Some of the trades on draft day involved strictly pick-swapping, while others didn’t include any draft picks. Nevertheless, I’ll break down the majority of those deals and tell you who I think the winning teams were.


Note: Trades that did not include at least one player drafted before 2011 or at least one first-round pick in the 2011 draft are not listed.
