Free Agent Frenzy 2009 Edition

In a mere 10 minutes the gates will lift and the NHL's annual free agent frenzy will begin. What does that mean for everyone? Well, if you are lucky enough to live in Canada, you get to watch endless speculation by the TSN talking heads since little signings are announced for the first couple hours. And of course you get to do that while sitting in your underwear on the couch because today is Canada's birthday. The little guy is growing up so fast.

If you're in the US, you can follow along on TSN's website along with their handy free agent tracker. They tend to get the breaking news up quickly and only if it's 100% confirmed. Darren Dreger is all a-twitter while also has a CoverIt Live blog going. Sadly, I don't see a Jay Onrait live blog.

If you're the informed rumor loving type, Spector and The Fourth Period have you covered. If you're the ill-informed rumor mongering type, you know where to go (but hey, we've all gone there once or twice).

Holy crap, I've been so busy lately I'm recycling posts. And without the decency to update my thoughts on what the Avalanche will or should do.

And I'm not gonna. I'm going to sit down, catch a little of the covereage, go for a bikeride by the river, lay on the grass and think about nothing...and then head in to work for a bit. I'll catch up on everything later in the day and will put up a post if the Avs did anything worthwhile. Like trade Tucker.

At least it can't be worse than last year's frenzy...
