2) He knows basically nothing about the NHL at large.
Truth. Yet NHL Radio interviews him occasionally as does NHL Network. Hopefully they stop. Makes them look really bad.

3) Nobody within our organization or any other is making him privy to any pertinent info like potential trades or roster moves.
Big Truth ™. I've mentioned this before but some people refuse to accept it. I guess without the cognitive dissonance (I want to believe this rumor | I can't believe anything Rossi says because it's routinely proven to be fabricated BS), it makes it easier to justify paying attention to his rumors and crapola every spring and summer.
