If there's one thing we learned this weekend, it's how many teams felt they needed help on the blueline. Draft picks aside, there were multiple deals for proven NHL rear guards of varying talent.
Following up on the Boston Bruins trade-deadline acquisition of Tomas Kaberle, Friday saw deals done for Brent Burns, Brian Campbell, Jean-Michael Liles and eventually, Robyn Regehr.
The San Jose Sharks and Buffalo Sabres both felt as if they were a key player away from making a sustained Cup run while Florida clearly felt they could upgrade if they took on a bloated cap hit.
