be friends with a guy obsessed with hockey and have him send you updates.

It is what my friends do with me

I know you can get it from TSN but I swear I've signed up for their SMS alerts like 10 times and it's never done anything

I just follow Bob Mckenzie on Twitter and have Twitter SMS me when he tweets anything.

That's basically the only thing I use for twitter. Dreger is another I follow.


Edit: Misread, skipped over rumours, but I'd imagine you could follow....Eklund

Follow Bobby Mac and Dreger on twitter and get SMS notifications sent to your phone. You'll get a lot of other stuff as well but they're usually pretty on top of things.

TSN tradecenter app works great! Alerts you of trades even the minor ones.

Comes up like a SMS.

Works all year round as well not just for trade deadline.

If you're looking for something that's not an app for a smartphone, TSN had a good one I used before I got my iPhone and TradeCenter app. As for rumors, pick a few guys on twitter you think are reliable and get text updates from them.

I did it for the draft last year and I have also done it for the trade deadline in the past as well, when I have the day off.

If there's enough interest, I could do it again.

If you're looking for trade rumors, they aren't the ones you follow.

I use TSN the only issue I had was I signed up for everything so I was getting text's for every league's draft. I've changed that now and it's only NHL.

Glad my post is still working out!

I posted a link in the comment section to the Apple forums that shows how to set up an account with no payment option.

Is there one that works for Americans? TSN still doesn't support any US carriers.
