I think by far the NHL trading deadline is the most exciting. I usually stay home on whatever day it falls on & my friend and I watch ESPNEWS/TSN and search the net for any updates while having the Radio on also. Its great.
The reason I'm saying this is because the NBA deadline is today & so far it sucks. Its 2.30 and there hasn't been much movement at all. I'm very disapointed.
The NFL deadline is the worst (I think)..
MLB is prob the second best & is prob pretty close to the NHL deadline.
is a good reason - less players on the block, and not a likely large amount of 'big' deals - perhaps deals with teams swapping to fill in holes (i.e., defenseman for forward, etc.). There won't be any dumping of high-priced talent on lower teams with more than a year left on their contract, though.
I actually think there will be big deals. I think because its earlier, possible playoff teams or even teams with injuries like Ottawa will have more pressure on deciding what they should do and would fork over better prospects in deals just to get what they need.
I never work the day of the deadline either.... LOL.. it is crazy up here in Toronto that day.... Well it was in the past anyways..... All 3 sports networks tripping over each other to get the trades out to the public first.... Plus I listen to the fan 590 also....
