NHL Deadline Banter

so 1 deal so far. Talk is that Dominic Moore is offically on the table, that is talks are over with his agent. One of my pals is also telling me that the Chicago Blackhawks are the leaders in the hunt for Antropov.

Early impressions:

1. TSN and sportsnet started 2 hours too early.
2. Hogan and Toth bashing deadline day 2 minutes in to their show was a little odd
3. I find it really interesting that the new/tech type guys are front and centre on TSN whereas the old scribes Cox, Simmons and Farber are getting about 5 minutes per hour.
4. Marty McSorley has been great on Sportsnet.
5. Bill Watters either doesnt get or doesn’t take the free wardrobe money most on air folks get.
6. Pascal Leclaire learned of the deal to Ottawa on TSN.
7. I am using DL’s slingbox…pretty cool

I find it laughable when I hear the networks complain about the lack of deals on the morning of trade deadline day…………….maybe they should look in the mirror and say “why on earth do we start our show at 8:00 am??”

A Gerber/Kolzig/Joseph trio between the pipes.I may be dating myself,but this reminds me of the time we had Johnson/Favell/Wilson……………the bright side of today,is that Tank Nation just got a much needed shot in the arm

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
