Yesterday, the Edmonton Oilers were both very active and very inactive in the NHL’s annual trade deadline.

The deadline deal that sent Dustin Penner away and brought Colton Teubert to the Oilers organization has a ripple effect throughout the roster and beyond. Good news for some.

When Ales Hemsky looks around the dressing room these days he sees a lot of potential and, I'm guessing, many long nights until it actually turns into anything resembling success that he can hang his hat on.

Now that trade deadline day has come and gone with the usual pomp and circumstance, we can stop and take stock of what has gone on for the Mighty Oil. It was a big day yesterday - in fact it was the busiest day in the history of OilersNation.com.
Say what you want about the Dustin Penner trade, it has people talking.
