Who is this Cloutier Character?
 
I've been reading this hockey buzz columnist for a while now. I'd have to say he does have the odd moment but for the most part its hard to read. How are these bloggers looked at by main stream media? Does this guy actually have any sources or he he sitting in his basement making stuff up? I'd like to give him some advice but I refuse to pay for a membership. I'd have to say I've read a number of posts on this site which are superior to the work he is doing over there. Can somebody please take his job!!! Thank you for your time. l:help:

Yes, he makes things up. He is not an insider. The Oilers are a very tight lipped organization - they aren't whispering into the ear of this guy.

oilphan 03-11-2013 07:10 PM

I agree...he is horrible. Any Oiler writer would have good readership numbers on that site. I read him sometimes just because I am starved for Oiler content.

molsonmuscle360 03-11-2013 07:59 PM

He's just some dude from Lac La Biche, think he works at the college there. I've actually met his mom a couple of times when I used to work at the casino here in Fort Mac, she used to come up and volunteer with a group from down there, I used to work quite a bit with the volunteers, she was a pretty cool older lady.

jumptheshark 03-11-2013 08:33 PM

without starting a flame war with those who like HockeyBuzz, while some blogggers on there do actually have legit contracts-- so far Cloutier looks to be a guy trying to break into the media using HB as a stepping stone

nexttothemoon 03-11-2013 10:25 PM

I agree... collectively here, HFoil are a better source of rumours and proposals. At least when we make ridiculous, impossible proposals we have the rest of the board to cut us down and tell us we are full of crap and put some logic back into the ideas.

That Hockey Buzz crap just keeps spewing out the feces unfettered by any logic or reasoning.

Your last sentence describes Sun Media to a T.

I have been reading his articles for a while and I like them. I know he has no contacts but I do like what he writes about. I give him props.

Worst HF story ever

dustrock 03-11-2013 10:45 PM

I actually don't mind Cloutier, and most of the time his blog reads like an HF post anyway.

He doesn't claim to me anything more than an Oilers fan so already he's got a leg up on Eklund.

Some of the guys that post on his site are pretty decent. But I'll read pretty much anything

nexttothemoon 03-11-2013 11:10 PM

Admittedly my views are poisoned by Eklund on that site... his **** poisons it all for me to the point of not even wanting to read anything there.

Flyersandoilers1239 03-11-2013 11:34 PM

You guys do realize he doesnt claim to be an insider or anything and doesnt try and start rumors or anything..his blogs are his opinion of what should happen within the oilers...he will change his mind sometimes 2-4 blogs later...give the guy a break, hes like everyone of us shooting our mouths off with what the oilers should do, he actually has a pretty good grasp on whats going on and what needs to be done with the team

again he doesnt claim to be nothing more than what he is.. a blogger and an oilers fan
he has fun with his blogs and likes to propose outrageous stuff to see the reactions of his readers and oilers fans,for not being a journalist or writer or even part of the media he does a pretty good job doing his blogs with no sources and insiders

:handclap::):)

Hey Cloutier,

Thanks for coming out. If that is you can you do me a favor and proof read your articles before you post them. Some how I don't see yak being the second line center for the next ten years. Just saying.....

Flyersandoilers1239 03-12-2013 12:40 AM

Im definitely not cloutier...i just read his blogs all the time
and its ridiculous that you all rip into him, when you all do the same thing on these boards as to what he does in his blogs :):)

khandom09 03-12-2013 12:48 AM

Richard Cloutier is like Magicarp.

Ok, if he was a gm he would be Garth Snow. Lets be realistic here, we all shoot our mouths off when we're upset with the Oilers organization. But he's basically traded every Oiler twice. Trade hemsky, gagner and paajarvi and smyth and belanger and horcoff and khabibulin!

A lot of people have come to a realization that the Oilers main problems are work ethic, leadership and experience. And he continually wants to get younger, yet complains about the rebuild.

I'm pretty sure flyersandoilers1239 is Richard Cloutier too guys.
