OHL Trade Deadline In Review...

Jan. 10 - Deadline Day:

*Michael Whaley from Windsor to Plymouth for 13th in 2012.
At least Windsor gets one pick for their future. 

*Belleville sends Kyle DeCoste to London for a 7th round pick in 2012.

*Brandon Archibald to Saginaw from SOO for Michael Kantor, 4th in 2012, 6th in 2013, 2nd in 2014
A bit surprised that SSM got less for Archibald then they did Carrick, but clearly they just want picks to rebuild their now weak team. 

*Jake Carrick from Sault Ste Marie to Windsor for Brent Sullivan 4th in 2012, 3rd in 2013, 10th in 2014, 2nd in 2015.
Windsor continuing to surprise and build another Mem Cup team, while SSM gets a handful of much-needed picks. 

*Chris DeSousa from London to Mississauga for 2nd and 4th in 2013.
After requesting a trade from Niagara, landing him in London last year in efforts to go deep in the playoffs and get some scouting attention, DeSousa has had one of his worst OHL seasons this year. Maybe he can turn things around in Mississauga with a potential Memorial Cup team. London stocks up to rebuild, decent trade. 

*Jeremy Gottzmann from Erie to Peterborough for 5th in 2011.
Good move for Erie to grab a pick. 

*Corey Czarnik from Barrie to Plymouth for 12th in 2011.
Again, Barrie stocking up on draft picks. 

*Victor Terreri from London to Niagara for 5th in 2011 (BRM), 8th in 2012
Just what Niagara needed - a legitimate heavy-weight enforcer. Although they have plenty of guys who will mix things up, they did lack a guy to protect the smaller stars from the big guns. Good trade for both as London is clearly rebuilding after going through there worst year in many. 

*Plymouth trades defenseman Jay Gilbert ('91) to Owen Sound for defenseman Curtis Crombeen ('93), SAG 2nd round pick in 2012, OS 3rd round pick in 2013.
Gilbert has never been a top four defender, but plays a role as a shutdown third pairing d-man. He went from the IceDogs to Plymouth, now to Owen Sound, nothing to special regarding him, Plymouth is the winner out of this deal. 

*London sends Tyler Brown to Kingston for an 8th round pick in 2011 and 4th in 2012.
Not a blockbuster trade by any means, but one that gives London some picks and gives Kingston and average player that will be an OA next season. 

*Sault St. Marie sends offensive powerhouse and Soo native Brett Thompson ('91) and 2nd round import pick to Erie for David Broll ('93), 1st round import, 3rd round pick in 2013, and 4th in 2014.
After a 42 goal season last year, Brett Thompson is having an okay season this year but may not reach 40 with 25 goals and 21 assists in 40 games. However, Thompson is a pure goal scorer that will compliment Greg McKegg and take some weight off his shoulders, while Broll is a promising young forward, and the picks will help SSM rebuild in years to come. 

*London Knights trade overage defenceman Michael D'Orazio ('90) to Mississauga for three 2nd round picks.
Mississauga receives a solid OA defenseman who is well-liked by many coaches and teammates, should be a great fit and addition to an already powerful team. London looking shaky this season, they're in need of some picks.  

Jan. 9: 

*Windsor sends promising youngsters Eric Locke ('93) and Josh Malecki ('93) to Barrie for high-scoring forward Taylor Carnevale ('91). 
A lot of people in Windsor are puzzled at this one. The first rumours circulating around the Spitfires were the two World Junior stars Ryan Ellis and Zack Kassian being on the trading block, but instead it seems like Windsor opted to keep the pair and go for another big name in Taylor Carnevale... Going for the three-peat???  Risky trade for Windsor, great trade for Barrie though, Locke seems very promising and two '93's will help rebuild the team. 

*Barrie sends over-ager Dalton Prout ('90) to Saginaw for sophomore defenseman Alex Lepkowski ('93), veteran blue-liner Matt Ashman ('90), Kitchener's 3rd round pick in 2013, and a 3rd round pick in 2014. 
Prout is a proven leader that will add experience to Saginaw - a team that wants to go for the title in the Western Conference this year, while Barrie receives some much-needed picks and a young defenseman that adds a whole lot of size (6.03, 216 Lbs.) Good trade for both teams.  

*Barrie sends defenseman Stephen Gaskin to Guelph for their own 2nd round pick in 2012, and a 4th round pick in 2012. 
Barrie is cleaning house and making some room for all of the draft picks they have acquired along with the many '93-born players in efforts to rebuild the struggling last place team. Good trade for Barrie to get the picks, Guelph gains an exceptional defenseman.
