Trade deadline day (and the days leading up to it) are some of the most entertaining days on the calendar each hockey year. In terms of Internet traffic, it very well may be the biggest. With that in mind, here are our plans for deadline day.
We'll have one big open thread for all the rumors and non-Flyers deals. It'll be open pretty early in the morning, probably around 8 AM, ready for action. We'll update the main post body with information as the day progresses, but most of the action will be in the comments. We can all bounce rumors off of each other as they day goes on and have the usual lively discussion to which we're accustomed.
If the Flyers make a deal, or there's a large bit of speculation surrounding the team like we saw Monday night with the Dan Hamhuis rumors, a story will be published with the details.
If you'd like one centralized location for trade information, SBNation.com really might have the best comprehensive coverage around. Using all the resources of the SBN Hockey network, myself and the other contributors to the SBN.com hockey page will be updating one so-called story stream with all the information as it happens.
For an example of how this concept works, head on over to that stream now. We've already covered all of Monday's moves over there and you can see how effective we're able to combine trade news and instant fan analysis all in one place. For a more raw look at all the trade news and analysis from around SBN Hockey, check out our trade deadline hub.
Also, for live updates from the best Flyers news sources on the web, check out our Flyers Twitter tracker. It centralizes all of the messages from the best Flyers news sources in one spot and in real time. It's linked on the left side of the home page at all times, too. Not just a trade deadline feature.
We're taping Broad Street Hockey Radio on Tuesday evening and it'll be available on Wednesday morning, just in time for the deadline. We'll, of course, be discussing the latest wheeling and dealing.
If you have any suggestions for our deadline coverage, leave it in the comments.
