Kitchener has lost a player before because of accusations like this that were baseless as the player did not want to have to deal with the fall out if he came here.

His name is Cam Fowler, heard of him right? He had meetings planned with the Rangers to discuss his reporting to the team until Jeff Jackson came out with unsourced information claiming the Rangers were offering up to $500,000 for him to come to the team. He cancelled those meetings, reentered the draft, never attended Notre Dame and instead went to play for Windsor.

Now we have Sam Carrick bolting Michigan for Plymouth, Last year John Gibson bolting for Kitchener, and now talk that Trouba may or may not and what do we get?

An Article claiming that money is involved. Accusations that the Rangers asked to be either retracted or validated by this past Monday July 9th. Michigan Daily never did and now it's being pursued legally. I hope they have solid first hand proof of this or they'll get owned in court for it.

Not to mention they have added and added to the 'Original' news release to include quotes from the Trouba family which did not arise until AFTER the orignal story hit the fan, IMO in an attempt to add to their credibility as they were being widely accused of amateur journalism for posting a story of the magnitude of allegation with only TWO UNNAMED sources and about 200 words.

Funny how the back tracking begins.....
