With the NHL trade deadline come and gone, it’s time to rank how the Chicago Blackhawks and other Central Division teams fared

Another NHL trade deadline is in the books. This year’s version saw the Chicago Blackhawks make only one real noteworthy move, while the Central Division at large had an up-and-down showing.

It’s most important to the Blackhawks to note what other Central Division teams did during this deadline. That’s not just for looking at how this season pans out, but also how following campaigns do as well.

Therefore, today we’re going to grade how each of the seven Central Division teams fared during the 2017 NHL trade deadline.

Note: I’ll only be looking at trades that happened Jan. 1 or later, and only trades that involved at least one player currently on an NHL roster.
