He is a clearing house for the buzz that is going on behind the scenes. As with anything, most of the buzz doesn't amount to anything but it does give us an idea what the general mindset might be. It is interesting and entertaining. Take it for what it is...
As for some of the others, I have to agree with you. They seem to be wannabe's who create ideas and rumours out of their own imaginations. Those guys will have a short shelf life. Eklund will likely be around for a while.
Bob MacKenzie is the most connected guy in hockey and he never recognized the guy. NO ONE can hear chatter from 30 teams. Eklund is an imaginative small potatoes sort. If he hears ANY chatter teams will soon cut off his pipeline.
