- Brian Rolston, #12 makes his way back to Boston. I don't know why we didn't try to claim him off waivers, but anyway. I remember Rolston for his penalty-killing skillz and his slapshot. He's 39 now. His walker will come in handy during line brawls, he'll throw it at the players. Trade Deadline Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Recchis
- Mike Mottau, local boy, BC or BU hero to the 5 people in this state who give a shit about that stuff. He's in his early/mid-30's and I don't know why we got him (depth). I would have preferred a different local guy for a d-man, say, y'know, Keith Yandle, or something. Also, this trade had me hoping that Corvo was gone, but when TSN finally posted it and that we traded Vinny Riendeau, I was crestfallen. Trade Deadline Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Recchis
- Greg Zanon, a stout d-man from the Wild. Originally drafted by Ottawa (hmmm...). 5-11, blocks more shots than (joke). Looks like this year's answer to Bruins great Allen Pedersen. Can't have enough thick, experienced, stay-at-home d-men during the playoffs; basically Seidenberg-lite. Trade Deadline Rating: 3 out of 5 Recchis
