The NHL trade deadline passed Wednesday, and while plenty of star players changed teams, the biggest name rumored to be available stayed put. Vancouver Canucks center Ryan Kesler, who reportedly requested a trade, was not dealt despite a number of teams expressing interest in acquiring him. Two of Kesler’s Canucks teammates, goaltender Eddie Lack and defenseman Kevin Bieksa, are happy that the veteran center will remain with the team for at least the rest of the 2013-14 season. They displayed their feelings via Twitter. The journey continues... @Ryan_Kesler http://t.co/HBKMdnfVWz"— Kevin Bieksa (@kbieksa3) March 05, 2014 Still best friends! @Ryan_Kesler http://t.co/ptodG4optL— Eddie Lack (@eddielack) March 05, 2014 Photo of the Day The Roberto Luongo-Tim Thomas duo didn’t last long in Florida.

You're all laughing at the empty @MapleLeafs war room but that also means no one is making any stupid trades so there.— Pension Plan Muppets (@mlse) March 05, 2014 Video of the Day That’s super impressive.
