Happy hockey holidays Wilderness! This years trade deadline is shaping up to be very busy, and if yesterday was any indication hockey fans are going to be strapped to their office chairs yelling "OH MY GOD"/"THEY TRADED FOR WHO?!/NOOOOOOO all-day.
This page will be updated as trades happen, so if you see something throw it in the comments WITH a source. Until it's confirmed by a trusted source (TSN really), it won't make it's way on the moves portion. Once they've announced it's happened, it will be moved from the Rumors group to the Moves so far.

Lastly, that brings us to the trades that someone who isn't a fake insider/Eklund have broken, but haven't been confirmed by someone who would know. If you find a trade and want it added in, add an Eklund level to it. If you're extremely positive it will be confirmed, give it an e5! If you're falling off your chair laughing because no one could ever actually think a rumored trade could happen, give it an e1.

- Kesler to Pens
As I said yesterday, I am about 95% positive the Wild are NOT done trading. This is complete speculation, but they haven't placed Josh Harding or Niklas Backstrom on LTIR yet, which could happen after today in order to maximize the amount of salary they have free (again, this is complete speculation. I haven't been able to get in touch with anyone about it).
Prepare yourself Wilderness, the Minnesota Wild roster could change quite a bit over the course of today.
