So far the big movers have been the Tampa Bay Lightning and Philadelphia Flyers. Philly making depth moves to bolster their blueline and Tampa selling off for draft picks.
After trading away Kubina to Philly, Tampa Bay made two more moves acquiring draft picks for the future. First Tampa traded journeyman centre Dominic Moore to the San Jose Sharks for a 2nd round pick. The next move Tampa made was swapping right winger Steve Downie with Colorado's defenseman Kyle Quincey and then flipped Quincey for a 1st round pick from the Detroit Red Wings.

So how does this affect the Toronto Maple Leafs? Well, with Philly trading for two big d-men essentially replacing Chris Pronger, the chances of them trading for Toronto defenseman Luke Schenn have been greatly reduced. With the Flyers being the most likely destination for Schenn, chances are he will most likely be staying with the Leafs.
