I dislike Bob Mckenzie and Darren Dreger but tsn is the most competent at breaking hockey news. I will tune in to both when it gets boring.

Can't believe you have Bobby Mac playing first line center over Ray Ferraro. Ferraro scored 400 goals!

Don't wake up early on trade deadline day. There are 2-3 minor trades they are discussed to DEATH for 4 hours. The last hour and 1 hour after are the hot zones.

I'm not going to set myself up for disappointment, so no, I'm not getting up early.

So which station has better coverage and the leaat annoying group of talking heads?

I'm already leaning TSN because I hate listening to nick and Doug argue like 70 year old women at a bingo game. It reminds me of this forum sometimes.

Working from home tomorrow so that I can watch the trade deadline day shows. Highly doubt there will be much action tomorrow though, but it's an excuse to stay home.

TSN's top line is the best in the game.

Probably going to be a huge discussion about how the Red Wings acquired some backup goalie to replace Gustavsson.

Does anyone remember if TSN and Sportsnet stream it on their websites?
I think they did last year, but I'm a little hazy.

I've got one class in the evening but I don't really care about what other teams do; hopefully we can make some more tweaks to our line-up.

TSN has strength, reliability and efficiency up front with Bobby Mac. Ferraro is entertaining as a colour guy but he might be out of his league in a live telecast. Dreger is a rat and with a possible Luongo move he might have to eat crow on national television. That alone could be worth the price of admission.

TSN has some major weakness on the back-end with Aaron Ward (Iginla gaff). Hodge is past his prime and Button is a liability.

SNET provides the entertain factor with the great interplay between Keenan, Kipper and MacLean. Kipper also was lightning quick last TDL with breaking news.

The X-factor will be Jay Onrait checking in from home. I think it's a toss up either way but I gotta go with Bobby Mac as the deciding factor.

I hope it's not like last year where the first 6 hours made the Minnesota Wild look exciting.

Are you ****ting me Dreger, talking about Luongo needing to be free to be an enticing asset?

For the love of god MG, don't trade him to Toronto. Screw them. Please go to Tampa

I don't have school on Wednesdays, so I'm free all day.

Should I wake up at 5, or just wake up at 8?

I see the sportsnet trade deadline ads and they show a clip of Kypreos standing at a "war" table hammering his fist on the table yelling at a bunch of pundits. WTF is that?

Sportsnet is so much worse than TSN for knowledgeable panelists, it's not even funny. Half the panelists on Sportsnet can't form a ****ing sentence (Brad May, Gary Valk, Nick Kypreos). The rest just spend 1/2 the time making old boys club jokes about the others.

TSN is much more professional, and knowledge first.

McKenzie and Ferraro add elements of grit to the TSN panel. TSN>>SportsNet.

In my industry it is not uncommon for people to plan the birth of a child for the busier parts of the season, the work season not the hockey season.

Nothing happens until around 9, so better off gaining the 3 or 4 hours of sleep.

I'm sure that Dreger feels that Nonis would have done a better job... I remember Dreger being very critical of the Nonis firing, and Gillis hiring... Dreger felt the firing was unfair, and painted Nonis favourably (http://www.tsn.ca/columnists/darren_dreger/?id=234470), while painted Gillis negatively (http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/darren_dreger/?id=235587). It is clear where Dreger's loyalty lies, IMHO...

The contract is nowhere near as bad as being portrayed... amongst Dreger and his friends... but it takes someone digging deep into the details, and not looking at it from a bird's eye view, nor from the lens of a personal agenda against Gillis and/or Canuck ownership... Dreger want to make Nonis come out looking favourably over Gillis, he's done it before, and he's doing it now, IMO... But, whatever
