Vancouver gets Cory Conacher from Islanders
Cory Conacher | VAN
(March 2, 2015 2:12 PM EST)
The Vancouver Canucks have acquired Cory Conacher from the New York Islanders in exchange for Dustin Jeffrey.
Conacher has five goals and 22 points in 25 AHL games in 2014-15. He is capable of chipping in offensively at the NHL level, but he's been stuck in the minors since mid-December. Perhaps the Canucks will give him a chance to bounce back. He'll be worth keeping an eye on if they do.

Islanders send Chad Johnson to Buffalo
Chad Johnson | BUF
(March 2, 2015 1:50 PM EST)
The Buffalo Sabres have acquired Chad Johnson and a 2016 third-round pick from the New York Islanders in exchange for Michal Neuvirth.
Johnson has a 3.08 GAA and .889 save percentage in 19 games this season. He'll join forces with Anders Lindback to form the worst goaltending duo in the NHL. Although one of them will have to play, neither of them should be on your fantasy roster in any standard leagues unless you're desperate for starts.
