Since all possibilities can't come to fruition, detractors focus on those that don't and call Eklund a fraud. Was it a fraud when he said that Arnott was a possibility for Montreal. Of course not. Gainey wanted Arnott but lost out to Nashville.
The entire player personnel issue is a fluid situation. The fact that Arnott signed in Nashville changed a lot of thing for a lot of teams. That leads Eklund to the next possibility, which may or may not come to fruition and with every signing, the landscape changes. None of this makes Eklund a fraud.
Whether his possibilities are a result of information from other, from his own deductions or a little of both doesn't really matter. He even quantifies his comments with his e1, e2.... rating system.
Give me Eklund's comments over those that keep saying I hate this player or I hate that player. At least his comments are constructive.
There is no evidence that he is doing more than guessing.
