04:29 PM ET 04.02 | The Vancouver Canucks acquired forward Derek Roy from the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday afternoon. In exchange for Roy, the Stars acquired a second-round draft pick and prospect Kevin Connauton. Roy was expected to be moved prior to Wednesday's trade deadline as he was playing in the final year of his contract and was going to become an unrestricted free agent. When Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reported on Tuesday morning that general manager Joe Nieuwendyk was unsuccessful in reaching an extension with Roy, it was clear that he was going to be traded.

I'm sure he was hoping for Swedish twins with more curves than those two have.
