In contrast to the draft, Darryl Sutter has never been too active when it comes to July 1; opting instead to re-sign his in-house assets or acquire big names via trade. The most notable free agent signings by Calgary in the last few years have been Todd Bertuzzi and Cory Sarich. As such, Flame fans shouldn't expect Sutter to make a play for any of the big name guys available tomorrow...

Day two doesn't have the same build up as day one, so I wouldn't be surprised to see more trades today.
And just like that the Day starts with a bang. And it is a piss in your cornflakes day for Oiler fans.

It pays to get up early some days.
Because I got my accreditation late I wanted to make sure everything was still good, so I hoofed it to the Bell Centre. I wasn't on the list, which I expected, but once I showed my card I got my mug shot. I now work for the TEAM 1250, not 1260. It's a better keepsake that way.
