SNET provides the entertain factor with the great interplay between Keenan, Kipper and MacLean. Kipper also was laser 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.
I get sick of Jay Onrait...........he's like an annoying toy that never shuts off. Ward is fine....the Iginla error was not his fault. Button is a bit of a clown, but he has great insight with respect to junior/college hockey. Kypreos does come out with some good scoops, but he's a ****ing caveman. I don't like him.

Would have liked Canucklehead # 2 to arrive a lot sooner, but we're happy with how things played out.

On tomorrow - I for one will be nervously waiting for 9AM to see if Cam Barker has been claimed off waivers.

I agree, overall TSN is way more balanced and has the top dogs to carry them, but if it gets ugly and we see a low scoring, boring game then I can see Sportsnet being right in the mix until the very end.

You probably will only miss a minor trade or two if you wake up at 8.

I, on the other hand, have to deal with the cluster**** that will be the trade board tomorrow morning. ...

Gotta take advantage of the weak link on their defence otherwise they have no shot.

I think it will be worth it if someone go on the PA system and say Luongo been traded.....even if you don't care it big enough.........but never will happen

The clear weak link for TSN is Button, but Sportsnet also has their fair share with Keenan, Lawton, PuckDady{Hate this man} ETC

Good luck.

Any guesses on how many trades there'll be tomorrow? I'm guessing 18.

Nothing ever happens in the early morning on these shows.

I remember one time I woke up at 6 to watch Free Agent Frenzy and for the first two and a half hours the only person that signed anywhere was Todd White to Atlanta.

Have fun.

My family would likely tell me to turn the ****ing TV off and go back to sleep.

I personally cant stand Sportsnet at all.
There are times when TSN is bad too, but it's far less than Sportsnet IMO.


I'll probably have the TSN stream on one of my monitors, and HF + tweetdeck on my other monitor.

Precisely why I'm waking up at 8 instead of 5.

TSN is the best for trade deadline day! I remember that day they announced Hamhuis signed to a 6 year deal.

EDIT: I will just keep an eye during socials tmrw since I get to work on a sheet all class and then Lunch. Hopefully a deal for a top 6 forward is put in.
