One of the things about Ek's site is that "HE" is mainly about rumors. But a lot of the people are there to read all of the other bloggers on his site. He has people blogging regularly about almost all 30 teams.
Those guys actually on occasion break news about teams and some even have sources of their own. Not all are really good but usually fairly competent and it makes for pretty good coverage of the entire NHL regardless of what it is.
Sometimes as far as news goes between him and his bloggers he is faster and covers a larger spectrum of more in depth news than.. NHL.com/TSN/ or THN
Some of the writers for the main sites don't seem half as competent as some of the bloggers on Hockeybuzz.
The site offers way more than just rumors. Ek also says a lot that he reports rumors not breaks trades. He does on occasion break one first. But he gives you a good idea of what your team is after a lot of the time. And I can say he is often right a lot of the time in what direction teams are moving. Which tells me some of his "rumors" are probably true.
