Trade Deadline...

I don't know why, but with Matt having his big-boy job get in the way, I have decided that I will live-blog during deadline day.  I've always wanted to try it, it will probably be an epic failure, and will include a lot of thoughts about how much I hate Pierre McGuire.  But it could be fun.  Tune in next wednesday.

Lets also open this post up for some early trade-deadline talk.  The first big trade of the deadline time was just made - The Pens traded Ryan Whitney to the Ducks for Chris Kunitz and Eric Tangradi.  Check out PensBurgh for some analysis.

So use this thread to talk about what trades you think the Hawks will make - What trades would you like the Hawks to make?  Who do you think the big buyers and sellers will be?

We can also use this post for a new weekly poll:

How busy do you think the Hawks will be leading up to and on the trade deadline day?
