Best NHL Trade Deadlines

Colorado Avalanche

The Avalanche made two additions in Sean Walker and Casey Mittelstadt at the NHL trade deadline. They should integrate into Colorado’s playing style, addressing a significant gap, especially in Mittelstadt’s case. While Mittelstadt hasn’t fully unleashed his potential, he showed his worth by leading the Sabres with 47 points this season. It appears that all the top contenders in the Western Conference improved this week, and Colorado unquestionably elevated their game.

Dallas Stars

The Stars had a gap to fill with a right-handed defenseman, and they resolved it by securing the best player available for that role without sacrificing much in return. It’s a great move by the front office. While the flurry of activity among conference rivals somewhat overshadowed the Chris Tanev acquisition, internal improvements such as Tyler Seguin’s return to health and the promotion of Mavrik Bourque are other ways this team will improve.

Vegas Golden Knights

The Knights entered the deadline with a clear objective to bolster their roster, and they executed their plan. With the acquisitions of Tomáš Hertl, Noah Hanifin, and Anthony Mantha, they secured three players who address their positional needs. While Mantha might only be a temporary addition, both Hanifin and Hertl are poised to become integral parts of the team’s core going forward. They look poised to rebound from a slump and make another championship run.
