I appreciate Eklund coming down to give our franchise props during the Balsillie coup, but his rumors for us have been off base for a while now. Eklund may have scooped one or two of our deals early on, but the guy has been dead wrong on almost all rumors he has "heard" regarding the Predators within the past few years.

Remember when he said that Forsberg was coming back, and possibly bringing Selanne with him too? Or when we were close to getting Ovechkin?

Sorry, but I simply do not believe it. Sure, Poile had a conference call a few days ago to talk with his scouts about possible acquisitions via trade or FA; that is public knowledge.

Depending on where our internal cap is, I doubt we have alot of funds available to bring in someone after we re-sign Hornqvist, Franson, Parent, etc.
