• You’re with me, trade deadline commentary

    If the NBA All Star Game is colloquially known as “the Black Super Bowl”, it’s probably fair to view the NHL trade deadline the Canadian equivalent.  All the major media outlets bring out their big guns.  Most of them come up with some twists too – Sportsnet is bringing in Eklund so that you can actually watch him make things up instead of just seeing the finished product.  The Score is following CBS’ lead during the Super Bowl -they had Will Leitch of Deadspin doing a live game log – and bringing in a couple of internet types to provide timely analysis on their Trade Deadline page.  I’ll be one of them along with David Johnson of hockeyanalysis.com.  When TSN’s website crashes (tentatively scheduled for 9:30 a.m.), feel free to wander over and check it out.

      I will probably do so, mainly to steal material for the trade deadline log I’ll be doing on my old hockeysymposium blogspot site.

      Hopefully I’ll find that easier than the game log I’m working on tonight at IOF, things come at you pretty fast when trying to do this, especially when you type as slowly as I do. That’s probably more my pace, having a bit more time to comment/analyze/go on tangents.

      You forgot the Deal or No Deal girls. That’s totally why I’d watch Sportsnet’s coverage

      I wonder if Eklund speaks as poorly as he spells.
