Welcome to the 2014 NHL trade deadlien open thread at Raw Charge. This is a place for open conversation about todays deadline (which comes at 3 PM Eastern Standard Time). Will the Tampa Bay Lightning be active players today? I can't tell you this. Or what the rest of the Atlantic Division is planning to do. What I can tell you is that these days tend to be disappointing in one way or another -- by who gets moved or by lack of movement. So prepare yourself for that.
Below you will find a live streaming list of various high profile NHL news sources and their tweets, such as Bob McKenzie from TSN, Darren Dreger (also from TSN), Nick Kypreos, Chris Botta, Spectors Hockey, ProHockeyTalk, Kukla's Korner and a few other accounts. These are voices I tend to follow for general league news.
Raw Charge will have news coverage and responses to any deals involving the Lightning, so check back with the site through the day.
