Last Call

  • Day 2 of the draft was much quieter than Day 1 with just a handful of mid-level trades involving actual, live humans. The Canucks picked up Linden "Oy" Vey from the Kings for a second round pick [LA Times] | The Flames helped the Blackhawks out by taking stonehands Brandon Bollig for a third rounder. [CSN Chicago] | And the Maple Leafs made a very Leafs-ian trade by sending defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and a fourth rounder to the Blues for Roman Polak. Oh, and the Leafs kept a portion of Gunnarson's salary, too. [SB Nation]
