Welcome to my favorite post of the year, my live trade deadline post!  From now until all of the trades come through later today, I will provide all of the details for each trade with my instant analysis.  I will launch this post with everything from over the weekend as well since I haven't given my thoughts on those at this point.  Be sure to keep checking this page as I will be constantly updating it.  Any questions can be asked in the comments section and I'll get to them as soon as I get a chance.  Here we go!
We found another goalie out of nowhere!  Jordan Binnington was great in his second start on Thursday, allowing one goal on 29 shots in the 4-1 win over over Canadiens.  He's been strong in the AHL the last two seasons, and with how bad their other goalies have been, Binnington deserves a chance.  Obviously it could collapse at any time, and the Blues' schedule in January is very road heavy.  On the other side, there a lot of good matchups over the next two weeks for Binnington.  I wouldn't go out of my way in shallow leagues to own him, but Binnington could be a solid streamer with upside for more, especially before the All-Star Break with the Sens, Kings, and Ducks in a row.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the last two nights:
It's nothing new when Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler have big games, and both managed to do so twice this weekend.  In Friday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche, Wheeler registered a point on all five goals, going 1+4, while Scheifele scored a goal and two assists with three shots.  They followed that up with Wheeler getting two more assists and Scheifele posting a 2+1 game.  Wheeler already has 20 assists in 16 games to go with 19 PIM and 3 goals, while Scheifele is up to 9+10 with 20 PIM.  Wheeler was a borderline first round pick that I had ranked as a high second rounder, while Scheifele was more 2nd/3rd range.  With his shot rate at exactly 2.5 per game right now, that solidifies him as a second round value.  Remember when ESPN had him ranked in the 60s?  Hilarious.  These two should continue to put up points no matter the opposition.  Let's take a look at what else happened over the weekend:
