15 Rumors
 
1) Devils have offered Kovalchuk a 17 year deal worth 100 million.
2) Kovalchuk may sign a 1-year deal with Philly or Detroit.

4) NHL may eventually implement a luxury tax or allow getting rid of guaranteed contracts.
5) Gagne may not waive his NTC.
6) Demitra to KHL.
7) Frolov wants 5 million/year. Rangers and Kings are most likely.

10) Ruslan Fedotenko to Habs or Blues
11) Kariya may sign with Pens, Guerin may sign with Devils or Flyers.

It's Eklund, so take it with a grain of salt.

We may be in the market for a goalie? wtf...

I mean he could at least use a modicum of common sense when he makes this crap up.

BloFan4Life 07-08-2010 02:11 PM

I'm sorry but only a person with no brain would make something up like a 17 year 100 million dollar contract. Number one, the NHL would never let it pass. Number two, he would never want to be tied up like that.

re5piration 07-08-2010 02:11 PM

17 year deal? Typo or what?

NobodyBeatsTheWiz 07-08-2010 02:12 PM

Interesting that he knows what the NHLPA and the NHL will agree upon for the next CBA, even before negotiations begin.

Smart man.

BigKing 07-08-2010 02:12 PM

Cool story Hansel.

Reign Nateo 07-08-2010 02:13 PM

Yeah these are pretty weak. 17 years? WTF? Dude would be like 45...

FallsForItEveryYear 07-08-2010 02:13 PM

number 3 sounds like an hfboards special. like halak ryder and a second for...

we've been waiting on kovalchuk to sign and we've been waiting for kaberle to be traded ....so lets role those two suckers together and say the kovalchuk signing is holding up a kaberle deal. ....it would have been better if somewhere in 12-15 he threw in a kaberle deal is holding up the kovalchuk signing rumor. just to cover both sides of the coin

r0bert8841 07-08-2010 02:13 PM

Wings don't have nearly enough capspace unless Kovie takes a 2 million 1 year deal which isn't happening.

DAkings20 07-08-2010 02:14 PM

Wonder how many of these he heard from his top source(his dog).

Jimmy McNulty 07-08-2010 02:14 PM

Some of these are pretty realistic actually. Demitra (and a few other guys like Slava Kozlov) seem like realistic bets to go to the KHL or back home. A cheaper winger like Kariya makes a lot of sense for the Penguins (they will need to make a little room somehow). Guerin seems to like the east coast and he would be an ok veteran presence for NJ or PHI.

Of course, then you have the stupid ones:
Luxury tax will never happen.
17 year contract?
Flames and Bruins trade...why?
Sharks don't need a goalie.
And what ISN'T holding up a Kaberle deal?

Bordeleau Of Blood 07-08-2010 02:16 PM

Wonder just how far up his rear end he had to reach to pull out all 15 of these.

DAkings20 07-08-2010 02:16 PM

By the way the kings stated they weren't even offering frolov a new contract so Eklund must of pulled that one outta his ass.

Grabovski 07-08-2010 02:17 PM

17 years!?! lol.

kyle evs48 07-08-2010 02:17 PM

who cares?

DevilOnFire 07-08-2010 02:17 PM

Someone in the NHL has to be ****ing with Eklund....

Neither do the Flyers. The imminent Zherdev signing will take them right over the cap. Trading Gagne won't be enough for them to afford Kovy.

slapshots1515 07-08-2010 02:18 PM

I like how Kovalchuk is turning down 10mil/year deals in LA, but will come to DET for around 2mil. Cause that's all the cap space we have.

DAkings20 07-08-2010 02:18 PM

I just google'd eklund and this picture popped up, is this really him? hahahaha

It's Eklund, so take it with a grain of salt.

I keep seeing people type this, yet they have no problem creating new threads around his garbage.

By the way, all of these are either straight from HFBoards, legit writers' twitter, or the equivalent of throwing darts blindfolded. Congratulations.

emodwarf 07-08-2010 02:21 PM

Yes, that's him. And, yes, that is in fact the same jaunty hat out of which he pulls random rumors.

Vipers31 07-08-2010 02:22 PM

Love that he uses the word "may" now. So you don't just know you're dealing with an Eklund rumor, you're actually dealing with one that Dwayne found too ridiculous to just write down like his others...

Cappo40* 07-08-2010 02:22 PM

2 rumours by Forty40:

1) Players will get traded somewhere
2) Players will get signed by someone..

Eklund has broken a few trades lately (Byfuglien trade comes to mind).

If you're not interested in reading about Eklund's rumors, why even click on a thread titled "Eklund: 15 Rumors"?
