General Managers Rankings of March 8 and 9 2006 for the Trade Deadline.

Devils Add Salary, Panthers Get D-Man

The finalized deals post 3-pm turned out to be: Devils acquiring Jason Weimer from the Flames for a 4th round pick and the Panthers trading Petr Taticek (complete bust) for Rick Jackman of the Penguins.

Brandon Witt to Nashville

In exchange for Kris Beech and a 1st rounder.

Ozolinsh a Ranger

Rangers acquire Sandis Ozolinsh, reports Details to follow.

Jokinen Re-signs with Panthers reports it is a four-year-deal. This also diminishes the chances of Roberto Luongo getting traded in the off-season. Expect the Panthers to add a player. The Devils need to clear up salary, look for them to sell a player, possibly Dan McGillis.

More Players are on Waivers today.

According to TSN, the following players were put on waivers today:
