Does anyone know of a script to use for an alert in sql 2008 standard for Extreme Deadlocks (blocking).  Only this type of alert.

I have the use of quest tools, spotlight in particular. But I need to be proactive I need to send an alert for extreme locks causing blocking to our helpdesk.
Does anyone have any advice? or a script i can create. Thanks in advance.

I mean locking causing blocks, which affects users unable to save data in the database until the block is cleared.
I need to create an alert for blocks, for our helpdesk to react to.
I will review the article you nominated.
