The guy has ZERO credibility, and I have never ever heard of him actually being THE GUY who breaks a story... EVER.
This is the same guy who announced on Sportsnet Deadline day that Ryan Smyth had resigned with Edmonton, and 30 seconds later Bob Mackenzie is reporting that he's been traded.
There was one time when James Duthie was on the Team1040 afternoon show with Pratt and Taylor and they were having one of their 'TSN vs Sportsnet' sessions and I remember Taylor making a joke about something TSN had done and all Duthie said was "Yeah, how did that Eklund thing work out".
I can't believe his links are allowed to be posted here as 'Rumours', and yet if I blatantly make up a trade rumour, the thread would get locked.
And this is not to defend Eklund, as I stopped going to that site 2 years ago, he did break the Byfuglien to atlanta deal as far as I'm concerned. (I did check the site as I heard of that trade as someone used Eklund as the source who broke it, and after it was done I checked that site and he was right).
