Deadline Day

Posted on January 14, 2013 by Mike Vogel

Only a few hours to go now before the NHL's annual trade deadline at 3 p.m. on Monday. Only 23 points separate the top 23 teams in the NHL, and somewhere in the neighborhood of 23 teams have at least some realistic hope of nailing down one of the 16 available berths in the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs. Several deals have gone down in the last few weeks, and we expect another dozen or two in the next 15 hours. My pal and Caps365 colleague John Walton will join me on Monday from 1-4 p.m. for our annual Deadline Day video podcast to discuss the deals, the rumors, the races and whatever else is on our minds and yours. You know you're not going to be working, so you might as well hang out with us. We'll bring the coffee. See you there.
