I don't know why anyone tries to keep track. Most hockey rumors amount to nothing. They aren't predictions, which are judged by whether they come true or not. We're talking about feelings and interest. When someone like Eklund says that "Team X is interested in acquiring Player Y," that's not a prediction and an average person ought to understand that it has a very low probability of amounting to an actual trade.

That doesn't make any sense. If "no one actually thinks Eklund is right," then you're ruling out Minnesota being interested in Okposo (which is all that the rumor is), so how could you possibly have "a good discussion on whether there would be interest from both teams"?
