The trade deadline is a high point of every hockey season, one of those rare moments down the stretch where fans of all 30 NHL teams really have a good reason to pay attention. The best teams add players; frequently enough, so do clubs in the middle of the pack. At the other end of the spectrum, the worst teams load up on draft picks and prospects and (sometimes) even sign pending free agents rather than renting them off to the highest bidder.

Prior to signing a five-year deal with the Oilers, Benoit Pouliot spent the previous five seasons in the NHL on five different teams. He started the 2009/2010 campaign in Minnesota, the team that drafted him fourth overall in 2005, and was dealt to Montreal. He spent a season and a half in Montreal before signing a one-year deal with the Bruins in July of 2011. The Bruins dealt his rights to Tampa Bay on June 23rd, 2012 and he signed a one-year pact with the Lightning. He signed another one-year deal with the Rangers in the summer of 2014, before the Oilers offered him a multi-year deal.
So far, Pouliot has rewarded the Oilers with a solid 39 games.
