Pulkkinen gets his first as a Coyote.
Lost to Minnesota on waivers. Minnesota sent him to Arizona for future considerations.


Filppula gets his first as a Flyer.
Lost to Tampa in 2013 free agency. Past deadline his contract was dumped with a pick for Streit.



Filppula reported refused to waive modified no trade clause for Leafs.

I thought not trying to keep Filppula was a mistake . He was a decent player we should have stuck with. I guess maybe it was Babcock? Or was he gone by then I forget. Seems like Filppula has been gone for a 100 years.

Filppula: 25 million over 5 years
Weiss: 24.5 million over 5 years

Detroit tried to keep Filppula but ultimately he chose Tampa Bay. Not sure what was the ultimate reason if he wanted more money than Detroit offered, or preference for playing center instead of wing.
Holland finally managed to get his hands on Stephen Weiss. For years every deadline there were rumours of Weiss going to Wings. Holland loves anyone associated with Michigan. Weiss played junior for Plymouth Whalers in the OHL.


Weiss as we know was bought out after two injury filled seasons in Detroit. There were also unrealistic expectations, many fans expected 60+ points a season

I like Filppula, but overall, he was getting paid a bit much for his performance. I'd say he was worth it the first two years in Tampa but his numbers will continue to decline which is why Tampa moved him. They also needed to clear space to sign their younger players this offseason most notably Johnson, Palat, Drouin, and Sustr.

Jordin Tootoo just scored his first goal for Chicago.

Only took 38 games.

Was bought out after 2 of 3 year deal back in 2014. Spent two seasons in NJ and came to Chicago this offseason.




Babcock was not a fan of Tootoo and was usually in his doghouse.

Steve Ott records first point with Montreal since being traded at the deadline for a 6th round pick.

Looks like Montreal is playing him as a center. Detroit was wasting a great faceoff man on the wing.

Patrick Eaves send to Nashville with Jarnkrok and a 3rd rounder for David Legwand at the 2014 trade deadline. Spent two and a half seasons with Dallas before being sent to Anaheim this past deadline for picks.

Eaves has 39 points in 62 games this season.

Has 2 goals in 3 games for Anaheim.

Goal #1 vs Toronto

Marchenko claimed off waivers by Toronto in February.
1st of the season/as a Leaf.

Props to Abbie and De Keyser for the uncredited assist.


Vanek scores his first as a Panther. Sent to Florida for a 3rd and McIlrath at the deadline.

The team that signed Pavel Datsyuk this past offseason had 4 of the top 5 point leaders in the KHL. He was not one of the 4.

Datsyuk had 34 points in 44 games.

To put Datsyuk's numbers in perpective here are the numbers from former Wings prospects Jan Mursak in the KHL.


2014-5: 55GP 17G 26A 43PTS
2015-6: 51GP 14G 22A 36PTS
2016-7: 33GP 6G 13A 19PTS

Jan left Detroit as a free agent in 2013 and has spent the last 4 seasons in the KHL. Recorded a total of 4 points in 46 games with Detroit over 3 seasons. He currently plays for CSKA Moscow whose GM is Sergei Fedorov (Fyodorov).

Datsyuk 5 minute major/game misconduct.





The penalty is for charging. As you can see, Datsyuk glided into the hit.

IMO.

It was a late hit, certainly not a charge.


SKA won 4-2. There was a total of 3 majors/ejections in the game, most were unwarranted.
