This is just a quick blog-o-note to tell OGA Blog readers we will be with you throughout Trade Deadline Day right here.
By 9am Eastern time we will post the charts of all Eastern Conference needs against the Stanley Cup-winning Baseline rankings of players by positions.
Thereafter, we will post a blog with a headline for each trade today until we have told you the impact of each trade on each team as far as providing them with that Baseline list of players they should be after today.
Ours analysis is simple today. No gut feelings about chemistry or what WE think the team needs – just what the previous six Stanley Cup champion teams say they must have to compete for the hardest-won trophy in professional sports.
Let the trades begin!
