I think guys like Eklund start these rumours more as a wish for than an actual happening. Byfuglien's not going anywhere for a number of reasons; he's more than an adequate offensive dman, particularly when he's with Enstrom, he spends his off-season in Minneapolis and he's from Roseau, Minnesota, about 2 hours by road from Winnipeg. However, if Holmgen hadn't thrown Richards under the bus with Carter, Eklund could have strated a rumour of Richards (and a draft pick) for Byfuglien- that might have gained some traction since Richards lives a few hours east of Winnipeg and is quite acclimatized to the Winnipeg winters (as is Big Buff).
