07:56 AM ET 04.03 | Though hysteria over the trade deadline may have peaked, TSN has a cast of thousands ready for 10 hours of coverage. That's why when the St. Louis Blues acquired Calgary Flames iron man/minute man/defenseman Jay Bouwmeester during Monday's game with the Wild, TSN host James Duthie tweeted, "Pray for us." With Jaromir Jagr, Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, Derek Roy and other notable names already traded and Ladislav Smid and Lubomir Visnovsky signed to extensions, there is the chance that TSN's coverage leading into the 2 p.m. deadline will be must-see TV for no other reason than to watch how a 30-person team can twiddle its thumbs for hours.

Last option please.
Well, goalie-wise at least.
Of course, then the deadline will pass and Reimer will get hurt reaching for the ketchup bottle.

Don't let him have lunch with Gionta.
