Well, we all know what day it is! The NHL Trade Deadline is one of the most anticipated days of the year for all hockey fans. The actual deadline is 3pm ET today (March 4th, 2009) but as we know from years past, often deals will be announced as late as 6pm, especially if there are a lot of trades waiting for the NHL's approval at 3pm.
The site will be updated all day today after every trade, so make sure to check us out regularly throughout the day for the most up to date news. I will not be posting any trades until it has been verified by at least one major news network (ESPN, TSN, Sportsnet, etc.). In each of the past 3 years there are have been 25 trades on each deadline day, let's see if this year is as busy.
Also a reminder to all fans in the U.S. that have access to a TV today, many will have a free preview of the NHL Network as we first told you about last week. If you can, I recommend you watch NHL Live today from noon 3pm ET for a Trade Deadline special.
Do you have Facebook? If so, add us as a friend, I update my status continuously to detail trades that have been made. A great way to stay up to date, even if you are just logging onto Facebook to do something else.
