Getting Ready For Wednesday's NHL Trade Deadline

The NHL trade deadline is this Wednesday (March 3rd) at 3pm ET. This is one of the most exciting days of the entire NHL season for hockey fans. Not sure where to get your valuable information as the trades break?

PuckCentral will be updated throughout the day on Wednesday as the latest trades air announced by the NHL or announced by one of the major media sources.

In addition, there are many other places that you can get your hockey on this Wednesday.

Kukla's Korner says:
NHL Network U.S. will pick up TSN’s TradeCentre coverage from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m ET. TradeCentre, hosted by James Duthie, will feature a cast of Hockey Insiders, analysts, former NHL players, coaches and general managers, reporters and correspondents providing breaking news and instant analysis of each transaction, including interviews with players, coaches and GMs from across the league. TradeCentre also will be streamed live on NHL.com for the U.S. audience. In addition to TSN’s coverage, NHL Network will have Deb Kaufman reporting live from NHL headquarters in New York City with updates every hour.

NHL Network Canada with wrap up all of the day’s action on their traditional On The Fly program beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

NHL Live! ™, the NHL’s daily radio show—broadcast live on Sirius XM Radio, streamed on NHL.com (in Canada) and simulcast on NHL Network Canada from noon – 2 p.m. ET—will have special programming to bring fans up-to-date on the day’s events.
In addition, in the age of the new social media. There are many people on Twitter who you should be following.  But, if you don't want to add all of those fine folks, here are the people who I think will bring the most valuable and accurate information as fast as possible as the deals break on Wednesday:

@PuckCentral
@TSNBobMcKenize
@DarrenDreger
@Kuklaskorner
@Wyshnski
@SpectorsHockey
@ChrisBottaNHL
@Mirtle
@KevinAllen

Here is some valuable information that I found over at Habs Inside/Out


If the text above isn't clear, just click it, the writing is in the form of an image.

I also recommend checking out the trades section on HFBoards, trades & signings are posted there pretty much instantly.

Also, I'd recommend keeping at least one of these two trade trackers open in your browser all day on Wednesday:

TSN Tradecentre
Sportsnet Trade Tracker
