If the specific day has been determined, is there any indication that any of the networks are running specials like they do on trade deadline day or the first day of free agency (this is primarily for Canadians as I doubt any US networks ever do this)?
For those of us who love free agency and trade deadline day this could be a fun week that would be even better if the networks were doing blanket coverage like they normally do.
I would assume it would be similar to the release of the schedule. As soon as the players ratify the CBA this weekend, the schedule will be released - so why not the opening of UFA signings as well?
I'm probably wrong but that's my opinion.
