So now that the dust has cleared, who made the best moves on deadline day? Which teams didn’t do enough? That’s right...

Fleury stopped 34 shots, Patric Hornqvist and Evgeni Malkin collected three points apiece and the Penguins...

A new system and some new faces were on display...
Recently Josh Yohe from the Tribune Review released an article noting that Marc-Andre Fleury will likely enter the 2014-2015 season without a contract extension. Rutherford was quoted in the article by stating that “I'm not in a hurry to do a contract with him” but then almost backtracks mentioning that “there’s no reason why he can't be our goalie for a long time.”Go ahead...
