Emergency Trade: Hainsey–> Pitt

Carolina’s Ron Hainsey has been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a 2nd round pick plus Danny Kristo. Carolina will retain 50% of the salary . Source 

Quick Analysis: This sets the market for solid defenseman. He has been playing top minutes in Carolina but will probably slot into the Pittsburgh 3rd line. They made a deal last year for Schultz that paid dividends on their way to the Stanley Cup. This is a nice depth move while Maata and Schultz are injured.

Overall a nice return for Carolina, a nice piece for Pittsburgh, and a great way to kick off the trade season with how it sets the market for defenseman
