When Brooks talks about the internal issues facing the NHL he is accurate, when he starts talking about teams and their on ice performance he is lost. He is a horrible beat writer. Brooks is like the NY Times, very bias in his writing. He won't tell you that the reason NT clauses were added is that it is a standard operating procedure in UFA contracts in the marketplace. He also won't mention how NT clauses are irrelivant, many GMs today just pressure the player into yielding thier NT clause. Go ask Dan Boyle and his recently minted NT clause. Ask him how far it got him? Brooks is a rectum when it comes to writing about teams. I won't be surprised if he is actually Eklund! They are about equally inaacurate.
