Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Draft is tomorrow, so the NHL - and Twitter - are gearing up for one of the busiest days on the NHL calendar.

All this makes for one saturated goalie market, especially when you add in unrestricted free agents Miller, Smith, and Bryzgalov. Then you've got the non-goalie rumors, like Letang, the Vinny hunt, and the recently-quashed Phaneuf rumor, and it could make for an interesting Sunday.

Please remember during these tumultuous that morons like to make fake "official" twitter accounts and tweet fake trades, so every account should be double-checked and trades confirmed.
