3:00: 
Sam deserves a break - I'm taking over for him now.  Expect fewer updates since I'm "working" and there's less going on.  But hey, how about that Hossa deal huh?  Am I right?

3:01: And we break in with some huge news right away.  Khabby heads out to join the Oilers.

3:03:  Everyone jumped on Havlat for playing big in a contract year, but not for Khabby.  Guess who was hurt more this season too?  If Khabby's groin doesn't hold this could be a great move.  Though I still would have liked to get some extra space with the cap

3:05:  TSN goes to a press conference with Bouwmeester - this is boring. I'm bored now

3:09:  4 years - 15 Mil for Nik.  That's a 3.75 cap hit (impressed with my math skills?).  That hit would look good in a Hawks sweater, but the length wouldn't.

3:12:  The Northwest division is now Khabby, Luongo, Kipper, Backstrom and... Budaj?

3:16:  McClure reminds me that Anderson signed with the Avs... I suck at this live blogging thing

3:21: Rangers, Oilers, and Maple Leafs are the leading candidates to land Chris Neil... good luck with that guys...

3:22: Flames re-sign Adam Pardy - which reminds me - don't the Blackhawks have some RFAs?

3:25  All right, your Marian Hossa's first Second City Photoshop. Yes, he has the same first name as John Wayne, but he also has the same first name as....

Hossa_tony_medium

and yes, I'm nominating "Fat Tony" as Hossa's Second City name.

3:28:  How long til we get confirmation about these Havlat to the Habs rumors? He's gotta be the next big name to fall.

3:31:  Hey look - Deadspin posts a hockey column - congrats guys.  Didn't even take a story about funeral burgers this time.. how nice

3:37:  It's getting slow around here.. so here's a question - if you had $60 Million what would you do?  Other than two chicks at the same time of course

3:40: Phantom reacts to the Panda signing - http://csnchicago.com/pages/new_landing?Mora-Blackhawks-Sign-Hossa-to-Multi-Year=1&blockID=61828&feedID=661

3:42:  OK we've got Eklund still throwing his dumb ratings around saying Havlat is going to Montreal, San Jose and Columbus - no word on what happened to LA.

3:43:  Tallon is going to be holding a press conference at 4:00... so does that mean he's done for the day?  You can watch it on the official site - I'm guessing TSN cuts over to it too

3:45:  The Habs make the signing official... Hall Gill is shipping off to Montreal - 2 years/4.5 Mil total

3:49:  Eklund says the Habs have something big coming.. dude.. we already talked about Hall Gill.  Anyways, hold onto your butts

3:52:  Just a reminder - we'll be switching over to a new thread at 4:00.. just in time for Tallon's presser

3:57: Fourth Period says Hawks still negotiating with Pahlse... interesting... aaaaaand SWITCH
