I don't think he's ever really incorrect, I just think it's evidence of how often teams speak with each other, and what incredibly small amount of those talks turn into real trades. He has actually gotten some right before others have, but I think it's people that read way too much into all the ramblings he reports that make it seem like he's "always wrong". Do I rely on him for rumors? Not really, but I don't think he just makes up random crap either.
Luongo for Lecavalier is an infamous trade proposal posted on HF Boards and he ran with it ... that was the day I said **** it, he's full of **** wrt rumors.
