It's that time of year again. The day that every puckhead in North America has circled on their calender. It's Deadline Day! Stanley Cup of Chowder and SB Nation Hockey has you covered for all your NHL Trade Deadline needs. I will be tuned into TSN's coverage and scoring the newfangled interwebs to find out what is going on right through the 3 o'clock deadline and post the trades here on the open thread as they are announced. I will also try to stay in contact with Bruins beat writer James Murphy throughout the day to find out what he is hearing. If the Bruins do make a move, I will post a reaction to the deal shortly after it goes down. Feel free to chime in with your opinions on the deals as they happen. Don't act like you are going to be productive today anyways.

8:19 am: It looks like Pronger might not be dealt. According to Sportsnet, Chris Pronger will likely remain a Duck.
9:58 am: Ottawa trades Antoine Vermette to Columbus for Pascal Leclaire and a 2nd round pick
10:46 am Update from James Murphy: "Bruins were very close to Pronger but according to sources the combination of them offering Bergeron instead of Kessel last minute in aforementioned package, the Blues jumping into the fray and Ducks being in playoff hunt killed the deal. They're still in Morris swepstakes, hearing them linked to Marty St. Louis, Jonathan Cheechoo, Mark Recchi, Jordan Leopold, Marek Svatos and Ian Laperriere"
11:23 am Don Sweeney via BostonBruins.com: "We’ve got something in the cooker that may come down relatively shortly here and obviously we think it’s going to improve our hockey club immediately. Hopefully it goes through; we’re waiting for Pete to give the final word to the other team and we’ll go from there and obviously making a bunch of other inquiries in different situations, see how it goes"

12:29 pm Bruins deal made Update from Peter Chiarelli via BostonBruins.com: "Well, we made one trade that we can’t announce yet, so you’ll get that. It’s, again, it’s a depth trade, that trade, and we’re working on a couple of others right now. I think noon was a big turning point because waivers expired then, and some teams picked up guys and wanted to see if they picked them up or not. So that’s where we are right now, and we’re continuing to be in our War Room, and we’re plugging away here."
