Something's in the works via Fred Wallace Twitter post.
Hearing an eastern conference team being the transaction partner.
Time to hold everybody's breath
Well, it can’t be Suzuki or Phillips.... who else could it be?
They don't announce trades when players involved are at the world juniors... So it could be Durzi, Hancock, bourque or Sushko.
UNCONFIRMED: I'm told the pending deal to be announced is between the @AttackOHL and @OHLBattalion. It's apparently a straight player-for-player swap to give two players a change of scenery. #OHL.

Real interesting if true... Our last couple of trades with North Bay have yielded mixed results.
So who is on our roster that could use a change of scenery? And who might that be on North Bay?
Not a lot of guys on our roster have A) been on the roster that long, B) not rookies, and C) aren't prime trade candidates.
If it's a one-for-one, a struggling player might be Luke Moncada or Kurtis Evans for them? Russel or Jackson Doherty for us?
At 1st I was thinking, could be one of Doherty or Russell.
We can add Sushko to the list.
North Bay does have an open import slot.
He's had a down year despite putting up 22 points. Only on pace to score like 13 goals which would be a significant drop off from last year and even his rookie season.
Now I think the chances of this is slim however it is possible.
Nothing officially confirmed but hearing a 1 for 1 move or a 2 for 2 move. Hearing that it will be a change of senarey for all involved, and former 1st rounders that will be part of the movement. The only thing that would seem to be confirmed by OS media as part of the movement would be an eastern conference club that will be the deal.
Not just an Eastern club, North Bay
Would it be too much to ask to see your forward lineup in the following format?
Thanks in advance if anyone has it handy.
Ask coach Gill most teams change the forwards lineup depending on the team you play and where you play.
You rarely see the lineups stay the same from one game to another the best source in OS is the Sun Times Own Greg Cowan on Twitter he's pretty spot on for lineup notes for gameday but those lineups change game by game and week by week

We have a statistician who takes care of line ups. Belive the Owen Sound line up is up on the website.
Insiders reporting its Mitchell Russell. Makes sense.
..if it is coe...you may win this trade if he finally gets it...right now skates like the wind...gets little results.
Sounds like the London Knights have completed their first trade of deadline season. Players being informed right now.
Mitchell Russell is not at the @AttackOHL practice today, and Adam McMaster from the @OHLBattalion seems to be in his place. That would confirm what three sources have now indicated will be the trade announced tomorrow. No team confirmation, yet.

Could be a 3 team deal or a pair of deals swung in the last number of hours nothing officially confirmed yet sounds like details or league approval maybe waiting before official release
Londons deal is with Barrie for Keane
Getting a great guy in McMaster congrats
If it really is a 1 for 1 Russell for McMaster, real hard to be upset about it. Russell just hasn't shown much this year, but is totally worth another team taking a stab at. McMaster isn't any kind of world beater but his production is a huge step up from Russell immediately, and looks like the kind of player we'll have for 2 seasons beyond this.
Given our thin group of 2000 born players, that's terrific.
IMPO...…………………….I do not have a problem with Russell. That said McMaster has more upside.
What kind of player is Russell? Only saw OS live once and it was last year. Thanks in advance to anyone.
Russell a late 1st Rd PK. Skates fairly well, solid guy goes into corners and traffic, seems a bit snake bit around the net. Reigate mostly to 4th liNE, behind Suzuki, Hancock, Dudas...
Hard worker, maybe a change of scenery will do him well.
...if he is developing slowly he will fit right in in North Bay...
