2 trades

Carolina Hurricanes get Josef Vasicek back from the Nashville Predators for Eric Belanger. Vasicek was traded over the summer for Scott Walker. Vasicek has not not been the player the Preds thought they were getting, he only had 13 points in 38 games. Belanger who was traded earlier this season from the LA Kings, is a grind player who put up 8 goals, 12 assists, 20 points in 56 games. This will be Belanger's third team this year.

The New York Rangers contniue to deal and improve their team at the same time. The Rangers pick up Pascal Dupuis from Minnesota in exchange for Adam Hall. Earlier this week the Rangers aquired Sean Avery from the Kings. Dupuis has already matched his total of goals from last year with 10 and is one goal shy of tying his carrer high. Hall has 4 goals, 8 assists, and 12 points for the season. Hall has been in the Rangers doghouse of late; he was benched Tuesday for the 5th time in 9 games. Wild coach said, "he liked his size and aggressiveness after watching him play for the Predators in the 2005-06 season, when he had 14 goals and a career-high 15 assists in 75 games." (
