Yet a TSN review of Winnipeg goes on with the rumour about Burmistrov based on Lawless' previous article and now it's entirely TRUTH that he wants out. So next we'll see all sorts of people linking Lawless' largely unfounded claims that Buff is 300+ at the end of the season.



That's a more eloquent way of phrasing it.
This is a fair reason to be mad at the article, and the only thing i really take issue with. By proxy what an "accredited" hockey blogger posted is now going to become near fact throughout MSM.

That's my only issue. Even though Lawless has clearly NOT stated it as fact, that is not how it's going to get syndicated and picked up by other outlets.
