Who Broke the Trades: 2012

As I have in past years (this blog actually began on trade deadline day 3 years ago), I will keep track of who breaks each trade today. Which network will win? TSN or Sportsnet? Maybe RDS gets involved if the Habs trade enough of their team.

My tally is 6 for Sportsnet (7 if you include the one the Oilers broke first), 5 for TSN and 1 for RDS. I also don’t have any information for 2 trades. Any help in finalizing this is appreciated.

All times are Atlantic Standard Time. I will update this all day long.

  1. Nick Kypreos just broke news that Brian Rolston was traded to Boston.

  2. TSN might beat Sportsnet in the ratings, but that doesn’t really matter if SN is getting a majority of the scoops.

    • TSN broke the Hodgson-Kassian trade. Probably the biggest.

    • How does it not matter? The ratings are what bring in ads which bring in money which is the *only* thing that matters.

      • Until people realize that SN is doing a better job and switch over.

        • I’m not arguing with you about Sportsnet/TSN, just saying that yes, actually, the ratings *do* matter and it’s foolish to say otherwise. The ratings *are the reason* TSN, Sportsnet and others do this every year.

  3. It depends how you define “breaking a trade”… Because Bob McKenzie, broke that Cody Hodgson was traded to Buffalo before Mark Spector.
