With all the bluster and rumors swirling about ahead of the Olympic roster freeze at 3 p.m. ET today, it proved to be all bluster leaving the real trade deadline on March 5 set to be the busy one.

Only one minor trade was made as the Columbus Blue Jackets sent minor league defenseman Blake Parlett to the Boston Bruins in exchange for minor league forward Carter Camper.

The Jackets acquiring Camper makes for a nice homecoming. He played college hockey at Miami University in Oxford, OH and was signed by the Bruins as a free agent in 2011. He played in three games for Boston in February 2012 and scored a goal. He had eight goals and 23 assists this season for AHL Providence.

Parlett has yet to crack the NHL and had four goals and 14 assists for Springfield.

Teams can again start making trades again on February 23 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

    I can’t say that I have heard of either of these guys.

    Something tells me that any significant trades will be worked on over the Olympic break and announced at the end of the freeze, leaving a very uneventful deadline day.

    it’s probably a good thing that it was a quiet “deadline.” the owners only need ONE day per season to make poorly planned, rushed trade decisions that detriment their teams.

    I look forward to March 5th.
