Trade day sites

23 posts in this topic

These sites are official sites that are accepted sources, this may include sites who are aggregates of the official league sites.

TSN ESPN Canada, one of the quicker official sites. They also have a trade center.

Sportsnet.ca Usually the other site that is quickly updated on tradeday. I linked to the transaction page, which displays transactions almost instantly.

2man advantage RD's site, from her work here in previous years this will be a quality place to check.

Spectors The king of trade rumors. None come close, and usually does a great job if cutting through the clutter.

The fourth period A fan run site, has several posters from here involved. Including NJD Jester (Greg)

This isn't an all comprehensive list. I did leave off other fan sites (like HF Boards) as they are notorious for posting unverified trades.

Trade deadline day in the NHL is always a nerve racking day. It is so nuts that we hope for the best for our Devils barring a trade or not. Lou knows best for the Devils and it will not suprise me if the Devils do not make any moves by Tuesday night. This day will be a nutty day for everyone who pays attention.

The Devils don't need a trade... I'm hoping for a quiet day from Lou.... sites like Yahoo, RDS, are good as well? In the unlikelyhood they post first?

Official (company) sites are ok. I just want to avoid having people quote random user on random site said Crosby is a devil.

Can't forget NHL.com too for the latest trade deadline news even though they tend to be slow with the new news.

It would also be a great day to listen to SPorts Radio Toronto online:

I used to take the day off and work around my apartment listening to this. It used to be awesome in the none salary cap days. I just don't think there are going to be any major dealings.

Manta, that's because they already happened. Tkachuk and Forsberg were already dealt. The trade deadline last year had more deals than any in NHL history - while I think this one will be a bit quieter, there still should be a flood of minor and major moves coming in the next 27 hours.

For example, the Devils made 4 moves last year, I expect them to make 1 or 0 this year.

MSGNETWORK.com had RD's and Puckrock's blog list as one they are reading. I thought that was pretty cool. :evil:

Great list. I'll be using these sites instead of HF. Which is already in heavy traffic mode given that Gary Roberts is going to be dealt somewhere if Roberts says yes (TSN had it on their front page). So better them than HF.

Sweet. Just out of curiousity, what other blogs are MSGNETWORK.com reading?

That is fantastic news! I just hope I can trust this DM guy.

I heard it from an usher, who heard it from the janitor whose friend is a part time musician and has sources in PA.

THANK YOU, DevilMinder for listing some trade rumor sites. Most of the time I have trouble finding some, (except the obvious like Spectorshockey.net, or The4thperiod.com.) But this list is really appreciated!!!

Just one quick question, out of those sites listed, besides Spectorshockey.net, and The4thperiod.com, which one is the best? I'm thinking about giving RD's site a try. But I just figured i'd ask first. :)

Thank you!!!

RD's site will probably end up being the best, if her work as the anchor of NJDevs' trade deadline coverage in past years is any indication. She keeps her eye on all of the big sites and probably a whole lot of others as well. Sometimes she's even scooped the big boys!

RD is very fast at getting the info from the major sites like TSN and Sportsnet and organizing it. You'll prob avoid the traffic too of the other sites.

Since you don't live in Canada, listening to any of the major Canadian radio stations is key. They usually get reports right away as well and have ton of analysts talking hockey.

Sorry about the lack of updates guys, I had a prior obligation and had to be away from the computer. I'll be around for the rest of the night and puckrock and I will begin our Deadline coverage starting at 8am tomorrow.

Thanks again for all the support!
