Usually for a particular sport's trade deadline we wait until the day of the deadline to run a live blog, but there's so much activity today that if we waited, we might get pre-empted. So I thought I'd fire up the blog now - what are your thoughts about the Stars' firesale? How about the Pens' trades from last week?
Jarome Iginla, Jaromir Jagr, Brenden Morrow and Derek Roy are among those gone already. What's the next shoe to drop? What will the Leafs do? How about the Kings? Will Miikka Kiprusoff change his stance and accept a new address?

Welcome to the Sports Blitz’s March Round up of NHL action around the league. We’re releasing this one early thanks to the big Iginla trade and so we could cover the trade deadline before TSN blankets your Twitter account on Wednesday. We’ll be back next week with a full recap and reaction to every trade that goes down.
The Pittsburgh Penguins continued riding their hot streak...
Everyone expected seeing Jarome Iginla in a Penguins uniform would be weird. He'd been a Flame for so long, most people assume that every shirt in his wardrobe is red. It's just weird to think about him being with another team, so his debut with the Pittsburgh Penguins was bound to be odd. Just not this odd.
Instead of Penguins gold and black, his first game in Pittsburgh...
Less than a week ago, Matt Bartkowski was thought to be headed for Calgary. The rookie defenseman was one of the Bruins prospects involved in the proposed trade for Flames star Jarome Iginla.
But Iginla opted to take his talents to Pittsburgh, so Bartkowski stayed put and on Sunday found his way onto the scoresheet for the first time. The 24-year-old assisted on David Krejci‘s...
So the Bruins lost out on Jarome Iginla last week. But fans who are still upset that the former Flames captain chose Pittsburgh over Boston can smile once again, as it appears as if Jaromir Jagr is coming to Boston.
Which player is a better pick up? Jagr heading to the B’s or Iginla to the Pens? Both are future Hockey Hall of Fame wingers and both can put the puck in the net...

That thing he’d swore he’d never do? Blowing it up?
Jarome Iginla left Wednesday. Now Jay Boumeester’s gone. And last we heard, Miikka Kiprusoff was teetering on the brink, too. Who’s next? Michael Cammalleri? Alex Tanguay? Cory Sarich?
Is anyone safe? SHOULD anyone be safe?
Hockey’s oldest team...
The Bruins missed out on future Hall of Famer, Jarome Iginla last week when the former Flames captain chose the Penguins over the B’s, but the Black and Gold may land another NHL legend this week, if reports are true.
According to Pierre LeBrun, the Stars “have decided to trade Jaromir Jagr” and the NHL insider’s sense is that the Bruins lead the list of suitable teams....
Edmonton Oilers coach Ralph Krueger doesn't expect any less of an effort from the Calgary Flames even though one of Edmonton's most famous natives is no longer a part of this rivalry.
The Oilers have won a season-high three straight but have endured recent problems against the Flames, who are trying to end the longest road losing streak in franchise history as they continue...
The New York Rangers (17-15-3) host the Pittsburgh Penguins (28-9-0) at Madison Square Garden starting at 7:30 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo! Sports.

We're starting a new month, *******. Against the Sabres, of all people. Ew.
And the coaching staff has scratched Joe Vitale without our permission.
OTHER THINGS THAT ARE UNACCEPTABLE: Jaromir Jagr traded to the Bruins. Can't wait to be at that game and **** some people up.
More acceptable things: Brooksie has played 622 games, the most of any Penguins...
The Pittsburgh Penguins made a pair of major trades to bolster their attempt at a run for the Stanley Cup.
The New York Rangers are hoping their move can help them reach the playoffs.
While the recent acquisitions were unable to keep the Penguins' staggering winning streak intact, they'll try to continue another Wednesday night when they open a home-and-home set by visiting...
