Today you will see unprecedented hockey interest as free agency kicks off on a holiday in Canada and on the eve of a holiday weekend in the USA. More people will watch their tv’s, listen to their radios and internet websites will buckle under huge audiences clamoring for NHL rumours and news.
This is why you should move the trade deadline to either a holiday or a weekend. Make it an event like today is. The audience is there, for once embrace it.
Happy Canada day, Happy 4th of July
Happy NHL Free Agency Day
