He's an "insider." That means he's supposed to share inside information ahead of everyone else. We usually heard from other journalists (not bloggers) reporting on firings/hirings/injuries, etc. It's not so much rumor mongering, but getting information out there. He was way behind on the information on Darryl Sutter for example.
Not blaming Hammond for that, he's employed by the Kings, they probably preferred it be that way. Remember the hot water he was in when he broke the story on the Kings' trade for Justin Williams? The Kings had to surrender a 2nd round pick to Edmonton to keep them from backing out of the trade.
I'm sure it will remain that way whenever they hire the next "insider." They have rules they must adhere to.
