TradeCentre 07, will be available live – in homes and offices – on both TSN and TSN
Broadband at www.TSN.ca on
Tuesday, Feb. 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET. The show will also be televised on NHL Network.

TradeCentre’s availability on TSN Broadband is another example of how TSN is enhancing the viewers’ ability to access key daytime sports programming at their convenience, as was the case recently with the highly successful World Juniors.
TradeCentre 07 coverage includes a team of 20 Insiders, analysts, former NHL players and coaches, reporters and correspondents who will provide breaking news and instant analysis of each transaction.
James Duthie hosts the event coverage from the NHL on TSN studio, while Gord Miller and TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger work the phones to bring fans the most up-to-date information on NHL trades. Pierre McGuire and Glenn Healy are joined by former NHL coach and GM Mike Keenan on the ‘Instant Analysis’ panel, where the trio will break down each transaction, offering their expert insight and opinions on declaring the day’s winners and losers. TSN contributors Keith Jones and Darren Pang will frequently join the panel via satellite to provide additional analysis. Duthie will also conduct live interviews with players, coaches and GMs from around the league, ensuring TSN provides hockey fans with the most comprehensive access to instant reaction from the deal makers and players involved.
Darren Dutchyshen will present a
TradeCentre 07 recap every hour and will also host a segment with McGuire called ‘Players in Play’, which highlights players who are still available and most likely to be traded.

TSN will have correspondents with each Canadian team to file live reports.
