Last year's NHL trade deadline featured plenty of movement, but the quality of players exchanged wasn't exactly a thrilling list of who's who in the league. Some nice complementary players and a couple of legitimate stars such as Jaromir Jagr and Keith Yandle were peddled in the week before March 2.

And now that nearly one year has passed, it's a good time to pass some judgment on how these deadline deals turned out for everyone involved.

We're doing that with a grade, going to the team that was swinging the deal in order to boost its roster for a playoff run, as opposed to the side that was looking to land some sweet prospects or picks in upcoming drafts.

Taking into account the impact on the team's success last season, the player's longevity and potential contributions this year and the cost of acquiring their services, we assign letters from A to F with hindsight in our favor. The deadline was the final week of the window—so earlier trades made by eager beavers such as the Minnesota Wild (hello, Devan Dubnyk) are not included here.

Let's regrade the biggest NHL trades of the 2015 deadline.
