Trades, acquisitions off waivers, and more trades... We return to hockey Thursday, the Bruins host the Flames at 7:00 PM.

  • The horizon on Brett Connolly , a "high pedigree" player, is long term. (With video) [NESN]

  • Moves were made, but seemingly not to address the known areas of need. [PatriotLedger]

  • Connolly and Max Talbot are more than just rentals, and are cost-effective choices. [BostonHerald]

  • One acquisition, local boy Paul Carey , is happy to pack his bags to return to Boston. [PatriotLedger]

  • Peter Chiarelli "chickened out." And what up with losing two young players to waivers? [Boston.CBSLocal]

  • Counterpoint: He proved his belief in his core players, and that goal tending and experience will carry the team. Last minute defense rentals have a tough time acclimating to the Bruins' system anyway. [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Trade deadline moves mirror the season thus far: Call it disappointing. [WEEI]

  • Discipline. Chiarelli did not sell the farm, even at the possible cost of his job. Now, we'll see what plays out in the playoffs. [WEEI]

  • In a weak Eastern Conference, simply making the playoffs may pay off. Watch for the big moves this summer. [HockeyBuzz]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • In this review of NHL deadline winners and losers, both major Bruins moves are rated winners. [TheStar]

  • Not so fast, this assessment of deadline moves around the league begs to disagree! [TheHockeyNews]

  • In lighter news, one Chad Johnson is headed for the Sabres, and another Chad Johnson eagerly Tweets about it. [TheHockeyNews]

  • This ranking of top young defensmen, there's a Bruin in the top five. [SportsIllustrated]

  • A long, strange trip... Olli Jokinen didn't even unpack in Toronto before moving back south. [TSN]

  • The 2015 Willie O’Ree Skills Weekend was a rousing success, and a few Flyers posed for a picture with the legend himself. [TheColorOfHockey]

  • After the weekend's NHL action recap, read down to quick takes on the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference and the new attempt to meet fans' wishes for cap info. [Gtantland]

  • Have a quick look at a graphic representation of how injuries have affected NHL teams this season. [@LW3H]
