Toronto Trade Deadline: Did Dave Nonis Do Enough?

The Toronto Maple Leafs found themselves in an unfamiliar position – a fairly secure playoff spot at the NHL trade deadline, Dave Nonis’ first as the team’s general manager.

As April 3 came to a close the Leafs had made one deal, acquiring Ryan O’Byrne from Colorado. The move to acquire a veteran goalie never materialized, as Miikka Kiprusoff decided against leaving Calgary, and no one was able to pry Roberto Luongo from the Canucks. Now the race is on to qualify for the post-season for the first time since the spring of 2004.

Did the Edmonton Oilers Do Enough at the Trade Deadline?

The Edmonton Oilers essentially stood pat at the NHL trade deadline, making just one deal, bringing in depth forward Jerred Smithson from the Florida Panthers for a fourth round pick.

Smithson will certainly bring value to the bottom six and brings size, grit and experience. He’s an excellent penalty killer and good in the face-off circle. He will help, but he is not a difference maker.

The question is, did Steve Tambellini and the Oilers do enough at the deadline to make them a serious playoff contender?
