After doing a little more research, I have decided that Kari Lehtonen coming to Dallas is a good thing. I have a feeling he's here to be Turco's replacement but I have no control over that so it is what it is.
Below is my own little pictorial on Kari Lehtonen. I think it is pretty self explanatory.
And Kari, welcome to Dallas! You'll have a 11yo goalie wanting your signature on her "stars" goalie stick pretty soon at a public practice so be prepared to be evaluated by the self-proclaimed female version of Ron Hextall. She'll appreciate your aggressiveness. She'll really love the pic of you sitting on the net hahaha

USATODAY.COM: Kevin Allen reports the Carolina Hurricanes, Washington Capitals, Nashville Predators, Atlanta Thrashers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, Dallas Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and the Ottawa Senators are his picks for teams facing the most intriguing decisions by the trade deadline. Hurricanes forwards Ray Whitney and Matt Cullen are coveted by other clubs, the Capitals might shop for a veteran goalie if Semyon Varlamov remains sidelined, the Predator might consider shopping pending UFA defenseman Dan Hamhuis for scoring help, the Thrashers could shop forward Colby Armstron and goalie Kari Lehtonen, the Leafs could move Alexei Ponikarovsky and possibly Lee Stempniak and Allen feels it's still possible Tomas Kaberle might change his mind about waiving his "no-trade" clause, the Oilers hope to move players like Lubomir Visnovsky who are on long term contracts, the Stars could consider shopping Marty Turco, Jere Lehtinen and Steve Ott if they fall out of the playoff race, the Penguins might ponder adding a winger to Evgeni Malkin's line but Allen doubts they'll pursue Ray Whitney, the Devils might pursue a defenseman now that they've dealt away Johnny Oduya as part of the Kovalchuk trade, and the Senators might add a player or two.
Let me say this one more time... trade Niskanen, Daley, Turco or even Lehtinen or Modano (although they are our only two "franchise" players left and I cant imagine Modano playing for anyone else but still..) but do NOT ....DO NOT trade Steve Ott.
Here is my list of deal breaker players that we CANNOT trade (yeah, I know nobody asked me but maybe they should...just sayin):
I hear Sheldon Souray wants to come to Dallas. Fascinating. If he can stay healthy, that'd be a great acquisition. And.....have I mentioned he's totally hot?? LOL

What could be better than Christmas?? Hockey trade deadline day, that is what. I love trade deadline day. Who will get dealt? How many 'shocker' trades will happen? Will your favorite team/players be impacted? It is better than Christmas! I guess it is mainly because I am Santa at my house so there is no anticipation or surprise when it comes to Christmas, it actually produces stress more than anything else, but trade deadline is full of both and it is awesome!
We sort of have 2 trade deadline days this season due to the Olympic break and freeze on trades come Feb 12. Trading can then take place again between the end of the month and March 3.
So far, some pretty big names have been moved around and it is still early. What will come next??
