A degenerate fantasy player since the age of 13.

This year's trade deadline featured very minimal prospect movement, reflecting an ongoing trend around the league teams guard their top prospects jealously and simply won't let them go. Of all the 19 trades that took place on Wednesday and the dozen trades that went down over the couple days before, almost none featured big-time prospects on the move.

The biggest names dealt among young players were Jacob Markstrom to Vancouver in the Roberto Luongo deal, Brandon Pirri to Florida for two picks, and Brayden McNabb to the Kings in a swap of otherwise not-very-noteworthy prospects. That's it. Sure, the Sens dealt 23-year-old Andre Petersson to Anaheim for 25-year-old Alex Grant, if that's something that interests you, undersized AHL overachiever Jonathan Marchessault went to the Lightning, and the modestly interesting Sebastien Collberg went to the Island in the Thomas Vanek deal.
