Why? I mean, I really don't understand. What has Kipper ever said to make you think he is more "credible" than Dreger? Announce a trade 5-6 minutes before him? Who cares?

They just generate discussion. They make vague statements of the obvious like "I hear the Leafs are shopping Bozak", which 9 out of 10 times is refuted by the team in question and nothing ever comes of it, except for the rare time a trade actually does go through, which at that point is indistinguishable from the blind squirrel finding a nut.

They just give you enough to make you think they know significantly more than you do, so you tune in again to get updates. You've been had. They don't provide you with reliable information that isn't obvious anyway.
