Now that the dust has settled as the NHL trade deadline has come and gone, I can sit and look back at who did what and see if what was done today will pay immediate dividends for them or if its long-term. If talking about the latter then one has to like what Phoenix did as they started to rebuild their franchise. If you want to talk about what ultimately could have been the best move of the day, look no further than what on the surface is a minor deal between the Sharks and Ducks but for San Jose is one that could see them hoisting the Cup. The Sharks got Travis Moen and Kent Huskins for two guys I’ve never heard of. Make no doubt about it, Moen and Huskins won’t take any ice time away from Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau or Dan Boyle but those two bring to the table what Thornton, Marleau, Boyle and most of the Sharks don’t have and that is they know what it takes and what sacrifices need to be made to win the Stanley Cup. Coach Todd McLellan knows what it takes having won it all in Detroit. Claude Lemieux knows what it takes having won it with Colorado and Montreal and now the Sharks go out and get two more “grit” guys who know what will have to be done to get to the top of the mountain which is something talented San Jose teams of the past have not been able to get done. One can’t forget what type of job Moen did just a couple of years ago when he helped Anaheim win the Cup. He was arguably that year one of the best Ducks in the playoffs and was thought by some to have a shot at the Conn Smythe Trophy. So again, what appears to be just a minor deal struck right before the deadline may have major consequences when it comes time for Gary Bettman to present hockey’s holy grail.
