Four of the best possible NHL trade deadline pickups

A couple of weeks back I wrote an article about some players to avoid on deadline day.

CBJ HERO Graphs Part One – Forwards

Awesome stats prodigy Domenic Galamini (@MimicoHero) has recently popularised the use of Usage Adjusted Possession, or UACorsi (explained here). Usage Adjusted Possession does exactly what it sounds like: adjusts a player’s possession totals based on a few weighted factors: linemates, zone starts, and quality of competition.
