Well the NHL trade deadline came and went.  For those of you that slept through it, and I don't blame you if you did, I put together a recap of all the deals done. 

The story of the day had to be the trade that sent Dustin Penner to LA for Colton Teubert and two draft picks (2011 1st-round, 2012 conditional 2nd/3rd-round pick).  The Kings added a solid winger that has scoring punch and brings a physical presence.  It seemed a steep price to pay but LA was happy to keep prize prospect Brayden Schenn. Brayden played for the Brandon Wheat Kings in the WHL.

The Flyers remained relatively quiet. However, they did acquire F Tom Sestito from Columbus.  In 13 career NHL games Sestito has 2G, 2A, and 64 PIM.  Many have said he embodies Flyers hockey size and toughness.  From his twitter account he already sounds like a Flyer @tomsestito23 "rumor has it Philly likes to see an ass kicking.  Hope to see you soon and give you what you want" Yep, sounds like my kind of guy.  He has even gone on record saying he would like to take a shot at Avery.  Welcome home Tom!!  The Phantoms now have leading PIM guys in Sestito and Rinaldo.  

Well without further adieu, here is the recap of the snoozefest that was deadline day 2011.
