Sure, that's a fair enough position. I don't disagree with you at all. But given the amount of times the Eklund has deliberately (attempted to) mislead his followers and the amount of hype he puts behind every statement he makes, I don't have any reason to believe that he's just reporting what's on his mind, rather than what reliable sources have to say.

Anyone can make a twitter and a blog and start throwing out wild speculations like "Burke talking to Chiarelli about Seguin!! Stay tuned!!!!!" to feed the imagination of hopeful (or upset) fans and get the fire going. Worst case scenario, "eh uh Burke just asked him, man. Meant nuthin' in the end".
