The Anaheim Ducks filled a need today for their anticipated postseason run, announcing that the club has acquired defenseman Stephane Robidas from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a conditional fourth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.The 5-11, 190-pound defenseman has been sidelined for 37 games this season with a broken leg, which he suffered on November 29. The veteran is in the final year of his four-year contract, and should provide the Ducks with the defensive toughness they need in the playoffs, provided he can regain his health. The Ducks currently have the best record in the NHL.Robidas, 37, has scored (55-191) 246 points with a +5 rating and 671 penalty minutes in 871 career NHL games with Montreal, Dallas, and Chicago.

He has also appeared in 44 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, earning 15 points wi...

According to multiple reports, the Stars have traded Stephane Robidas to the Anaheim Ducks for a draft pick, possibly a fourth-rounder that the Ducks received from Washington.
More to come as details come by. If true though, it’s sad that Robidas’ last image with Dallas will be him writhing in pain after breaking his leg
Ducks send the fourth they got from Washington to Dallas to acquire Robidas. So, in effect, it's swapping Penner for Robidas.

Andersen made a career-high 49 saves in the NHL-leading Ducks’ 5-3 victory over the Hurricanes at the Honda...

Former Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill is preparing for his first trade deadline at the helm of his own team, the Dallas Stars, but he gave a thoughtful and insightful interview to the CBC's Doug Harrison, and the interview begins with Nill recollecting how the Chris Chelios trade went down back in 1999--and why it ended up making so much sense for the Wings:

DALLAS -- In a way, it was almost poetic that Lindy Ruff got his 600th career win as an NHL head coach against his former team, the Buffalo Sabres. The Dallas Stars and Sabres went toe-to-toe on Monday night at American Airlines Center, but in the end a power-play goal by Dallas rookie winger Alex Chiasson, one that went in off his shin guard, was the difference in a 3-2 win.
The Edmonton Oilers have made a goalie swap, trading Ilya Bryzgalov to Minnesota and adding Viktor Fasth from Anaheim:
Viktor Fasth to Edmonton also a done deal.
