General manager Lou Lamoriello boldly proclaimed that the Devils are better today with David Steckel in their lineup than they were with Jason Arnott and said he hasn't given up on making the playoffs.

New Jersey Devils Trade Jason Arnott to Washington Capitals for David Steckel & 2012 Second Round Pick

The move seals a short tenure for Arnott in New Jersey. He was acquired last summer in a trade with Nashville in exchange for New Jersey's second round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and prospect Matt Halischuk. Based on the initial reports, the only deal that would work trade Arnott, an impending unrestricted free agent in this coming summer, was to take back a player: center David Steckel of the Capitals.

Then as I was initially typing this, it came out that the Devils get Washington's second round pick in the draft along with Steckel. While the Devils have added salary to their cap with Steckel, $1.1 million/year for the next two seasons per CapGeek, I'm thrilled they got a second round pick out of it too. I wish it was a 2011 second rounder, but one for 2012 is just fine with me. ( Read Jason Arnott more... )

It's a busy rumor mill on this 2011 NHL trade deadline day, and while we don't expect the 30 deals that we saw last year on this day, we do expect some activity. Let's quickly round up all the speculation we can handle.

- The Tampa Bay Lightning seem happy with their team and we probably shouldn't expect much from them, reports Damian Cristodero in the St. Pete Times.
