According to this, The Score will offered 8 hours of coverage last year. I don't know what ESPN and Versus are doing exactly.

Well, I originally thought 8 hours was ridiculous but then I realized that if it is on and I am near a TV then I will probably watch it. Probably not the entire 8 hours but I'll catch up every half hour or so. The interview with Eklund may hook me for a while.

Today is deadline day

Americans that like hockey can watch SportsNet Live on the internet from this page:

Don't forget to check Eklund's site:

The Toronto Star gets their data from forcaster.ca so I tend to like what they have:

One hour is done with only one trade to talk about (Gary Roberts to Pittsburgh).

Recently we learned that Martin Biron was traded but the destination has not been confirmed. The first rumour was Florida but now they are saying Philadelphia (for a 1st round draft choice).

The Leafs re-aquired Y. Perreault who, apparently, has had an injured shoulder since the all-star game thus making him less effective at faceoffs and reducing his offensive output.

Can someone explain to me the logic of renting a injured player?

Wow, TSN kicked Sportsnet's butt. I was pretty loyal to Sportsnet without really doing much flipping around. TSN charges extra for their HD channel while Sportsnet is free in HD (if you have the Rogers VIP bundle anyway).

I mean, there really isn't much value in seeing Nick and the boys in HDTV but at least they had the "Deal or No Deal" girls (and the Hanson Brothers). Actually the Kipper lives around me somewhere, I see him out and about a fair bit.

For any non-Slapshot fans, I'm talking about these guys and not that kid band:

Sportsnet had Eklund but they kept his identity secret. He sounded like a bit of a whiner. Probably just some internet geek.
