Too many games on March 3, only 2 on the 4th.

Wasn't it in February last year?

I'd much rather it be further from the end of the season, why not give the new players an extra week to gel with their teammates?

This is potentially a dumb move too. A lot of guys may be held out of those games on the 3rd.

I believe it is set at 40 days from the end of the season

It's more about travel logistics, but the day before, the only guys behind held out of games are the ones who are already traded.

The season is also a week later this year, so theoretically it hadn't moved at all until now

That's right around my birthday, so I hope the Flyers get a shiny new 4th line grinder or bottom pairing defenseman or something.

Friggin' salary cap.

Well Colton Orr, Stephane Robidas and Alexander Semin can now relax knowing they won't have to cancel their birthday parties that night due to a buzzer beater trade....

Jake Dowell on the other hand........

I know why they did it, but having that many games that night will have teams hold out players that are being involved in trade discussions so they don't get injured.

GKJ, could you sticky this so "when is the trade deadline this season?" doesn't get asked 112 times?
