Selanne Dealt as Deadline Nears

But first, the recaps for the bad tie with Phoenix and the even worse loss to Los Angeles.

Now the fun trade stuff... San Jose picked up sniper Teemu Selanne from the Ducks for goalie Steve Shields, winger Jeff Friesen, and a conditional draft pick. Selanne makes the Sharks a threat in the regular season but San Jose will be forced to ride a rookie goalie through the playoffs. Phoenix dealt holdout goalie Nikolai Khabibulan and Stan Neckar to Tampa Bay for defenseman Paul Mara, forwards Mike Johnson and Ruslan Zainullin and a second-round draft pick. The Blues picked up d-man Alexei Gusarov from the Rangers for rookie blueliner Peter Smrek. Defenseman Sean O'Donnell was picked up from the Wild by the Devils for Willie Mitchell and future considerations. I bet this much doesn't happen on the day of the deadline.
