It has been one week since the NHL trade deadline, and the deals that did (and didn’t) happen have impacted teams all over the NHL.
Here are the standings immediately before the deadline and one week later, with all games played on Sunday, March 4.
The Blackhawks have won all three games they’ve played since acquiring Johnny Oduya from the Winnipeg Jets, despite not having Jonathan Toews or Niklas Hjalmarsson in the lineup. They’re still in sixth place, but look at the mess behind them.
Chicago doubled the gap between where they sit in sixth and the eighth place team. Minnesota made a couple moves at the deadline and appear to have fallen apart, posting only one point in four games since the deadline. And the Kings, Avs and Flames are stuck in neutral out of the top eight in the conference.
