We figured things would get pretty heavy today, so we’ve got an open thread for you to discuss things going on all around the league today. WIIM will break news as quickly as we can, but in case this whole day ends up in a frustrating snoozefest, we’ve got a place for everybody to shout about that at least.

As a quick note - Feel free to share rumors, but you’re going to be responsible for making sure you’re not putting up fake trades. It can be hard to avoid, especially on Twitter where things move fast, but if you get fooled by a fake account we’ll be removing those. I trust y’all not to do that on purpose, but trust only goes so far.

Some things to look out for:

  • Just because it’s the same picture and display name doesn’t mean it’s Pierre LeBrun or Bob McKenzie. Look for the blue checkmark.
  • Another good tip is to check the account that tweeted it. If it has 100 followers, there’s a reason for that.
  • One dirty trick is for people to find tweets from verified accounts that came out in years prior. I saw somebody RT a Jeff Marek tweet the other day that said Vanek was going to the Habs... it was from 2014.

All-in-all it should be a fun day. Hang out with us and ignore all that important work you’ve got piling up, won’t you?
