On deadline day
One more sleep.
I'm going to be here on the blog beginning at 9 a.m. tomorrow, watching the television coverage and trying to analyze deals as they come through. What I'll do my best to also present here is the thoughts of the blogosphere, and if people want to email news and notes into me, I'll certainly put that info to good use.
Last year's experience tells us that the activity might be a little lean until close to the 3 p.m. deadline.
My advice for following the coverage online is to stick with sites like Spector and Kukla's Korner, who both offer a pretty comprehensive roundup throughout the day. As for what's on television, well, The Globe and Mail's Bill Houston had a good look at just how big this day has become for coverage:
TSN and Rogers Sportsnet will start their trade deadline coverage Tuesday at 8 a.m. (all times EST), their earliest planned starting time yet, and will go a full 10 hours to 6 p.m.Sportsnet went a bit off the rails last year, and the audience turned away in droves, but it looks like they'll have a pretty solid panel this time around. TSN's Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger, however, are the top "trade breakers" in any medium.
Not to be outdone, the Score, handicapped by starting too late last year, will be up and running at 7:30 a.m.
If you want it first, watch them.
TSN will be simulcast on the NHL Network for American viewers, while all three of TSN, Sportsnet and The Score will be streaming online.
Anyone going to work tomorrow morning?
