Carolina Hurricanes


Status: Looking ahead to 2015-16
Deadline additions: Roland McKeown, Jack Hillen, lots of draft picks
Deadline subtractions: Andrej Sekera, Jiri Tlusty, Tim Gleason

Heading into the deadline, we expected Sekera and Tlusty to be moved (in addition to a few others), and Hurricanes GM Ron Francis got a nice return for each -- McKeown instantly becomes the team's No. 2 D-man prospect beyond Haydn Fleury.

Toronto Maple Leafs


Status: Looking ahead to 2015-16
Deadline additions: Joakim Lindstrom, Eric Brewer, Nathan Horton, Zach Sill, Olli Jokinen (temporarily)
Deadline subtractions: Olli Jokinen, Korbinian Holzer, David Clarkson, T.J. Brennan Daniel Winnik, Cody Franson, Mike Santorelli

It wasn’t the pre-deadline sell-off many fans of the Blue and White wanted, but the Maple Leafs managed to off-load several expiring contracts in light of the club’s two-month (and counting) tailspin. Shipping forward David Clarkson -- and his hefty salary cap hit until 2019 -- to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Nathan Horton was a huge transaction. While Horton’s average annual salary of $5 million-plus (and term) is similar to Clarkson’s, it can be stashed away on LTIR as the 29-year-old battles a degenerative back issue. For a team that can easily spend to the NHL’s salary cap ceiling, that’s a huge deal. Veteran forward Olli Jokinen was acquired as an add-on from the Nashville Predators and passed on (for a song) to the St. Louis Blues two weeks later.

Detroit Red Wings


Status: Top contender
Deadline additions: Erik Cole, Marek Zidlicky
Deadline subtractions: No NHL players

Looking for a heavily desired right-handed shot on defense, and temporary replacement for power forward Johan Franzen (concussion) up front, the Red Wings satisfied both needs ahead of the trade deadline.

Columbus Blue Jackets


Status: Looking ahead to 2015-16
Deadline additions: David Clarkson, William Karlsson, Rene Bourque
Deadline subtractions: James Wisniewski, Nathan Horton

After a thrilling postseason joust against the Pittsburgh Penguins last spring saw a real buzz in the Columbus air for pro ice hockey, a remarkable string of injuries destroyed any hope that the Blue Jackets could build on that success in 2014-15.

New Jersey Devils


Status: On the bubble
Deadline additions: None
Deadline subtractions: Jaromir Jagr, Marek Zidlicky

As with their rivals from a little farther down south on I-95, the Devils remain on the fringes of the playoff hunt, but their selling at the deadline is somewhat of a signal that they are looking ahead to rosier times in the seasons ahead.

While the Flyers are still mathematically alive for a playoff berth, the trades made by GM Ron Hextall ahead of the deadline all but waved the white flag on this season. And that's a good thing!

Ottawa Senators


Status: On the bubble
Deadline additions: None
Deadline subtractions: None

There are teams that didn’t do much ahead of the 2014-15 trade deadline and then there are the Ottawa Senators: For all the talk of adding a top-six forward and making improvements on defense, management ended up leaving the club entirely untouched.

Deadline subtractions: Cory Conacher, Chad Johnson

The Islanders are one of the surprise hits of the 2014-15 season, and while they could've made another big splash at the deadline, they opted to for an under-the-radar upgrade at the backup goaltender slot and stand largely pat otherwise.
