True, but if he really does have "sources" in the organization, they will stop talking to him if he names names. Just like with the Greene story, he told everyone that there was bad news coming and he couldn't announce it yet. Once he named Greene as the injured party, it was confirmed by the team.

I'm sure CBGB loves being able to put out vague stories and watch everyone scramble to guess what he is talking about. It also drives people to the website and puts money in his pocket. Isn't that the point of free enterprise? If people didn't love this kind of ****, hockeybuzz wouldn't be the cash cow that it is and "reality" TV would have ended a long time ago.


Of course we could just be getting these very insight full tweets from the "insiders":
