The coverage begins

Does anyone else find it strange that three of the worst GMs of the past decade have all found work as trade deadline analysts?

What profound wisdom will Mike Milbury have for us regarding the art of the deal? How about Doug MacLean and John Ferguson, whose own train wrecks are still on full display in the sellers department?

Maybe it'll be best if they get these three together for a "trades to make" session, whereby afterwards the network can run a disclaimer for other GMs out there watching:

"Whatever these guys just said, be advised to do the opposite."

Six hours to go.

I look forward to watching JFJ squirm on set while the other guys debate how on earth Fletcher will be able to unload some of those rediculous contracts.

No kidding — that certainly makes things tougher for the journalists on the panel.

The worst GMs still have significantly more hockey smarts than most members of the media.

BREAKING NEWS!!!! The Leafs have cancelled their morning skate, and have decided to work out on the beach today instead.

Yup, Trade Deadline day, where no news becomes breaking news!

It shouldn't if they have any balls. Of course, one of my highlights of watching TSN last year was watching how nobody said anything Keenan every time Luongo was mentioned. It was like he farted or something, everyone knew it but nobody wanted to call him on it.

Most?

You know that saying those who can do, do, and those who can't teach? Kinda reminds me of ex-GMs and the "experts" of the sports media.
