Every trade gets examined in the hockey world by other general managers, fans and players. In every trade , one team gets deemed the winner with their acquisitions compared to what they gave up.

However, there are some trades that can get examined years after it happened where the trade actually worked out for both teams. These trades don't happen very often, but trades like these can lead to an immediate impact on one team, while the other needs to wait before the trade kicks in.

So here are six NHL trades that worked out for both teams.

NOTE 1: The trades had to have happened in the past 15 years, which leaves us at the 1995-96 season.

NOTE 2: The trades are in chronological order, not by importance.

NOTE 3: We're all lazy and only read the headlines, myself included. If you don't read the slides and don't see my rationale, some of the trades may be baffling. Read the slides so you understand where I am coming from.
