Well, that's it for another Deadline Day for the Penguins, and early returns are mostly positive on Ray Shero's new class of imports, aside from Poni's visa problems which might cause him to miss tomorrow's game against the Rangers.

The final deal Shero pulled the trigger on was a very minor one, sending D Chris Peluso to Toronto for a sixth-round pick in the upcoming draft. Peluso was a seventh-round pick by the Pens in 2004 and is currently playing for Bemjidi State in Minnesota.

Former Penguin D Ryan Whitney was also dealt late today, going from Anaheim (along with a sixth-round pick in 2010) to Edmonton in exchange for D Lubomir Visnovsky, a pricier and older model who has 10 goals, 22 assists, and a minus-four in 57 games so far this season.

Washington was active on Deadline Day, acquiring Milan Jurcina, Joe Corvo, Eric Belanger and Scott Walker, but surprisingly did not make a move for a goaltender. Among other teams ahead of the Pens in the conference standings, Ottawa made no moves, while New Jersey picked up only Martin Skoula. Buffalo ended up with Raffi Torres, who was a hot candidate to get traded to Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia stood pat, apparently content that their team is capable of winning a Cup as-is.

According to Ron Cook, the Ducks will miss Ryan Whitney soon.

I wonder if Ry Guy jumps off a bridge in Siberia (Edmonton) if the Ducks go on to win the Cup without him too. Kinda like a weird twist on the Hossa curse.
