Will Bergevin and his team own the first day of free agency like Timmins owned the draft? (Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)
You guys seemed to really like the live thread for the draft, so we'll do it again for the first day of free agency.
Unlike with the live thread on the draft, I won't be updating all the goings on in the actual blog post, although I'm sure we'll talk about them plenty in the comments. The actual blog updates will be reserved for signings by the Montreal Canadiens. SB Nation News will likely also throw up some news stories if the Habs end up landing a big name player.
Happy Canada Day to you all!
