They do get some rumors from other papers, but so does Larry Brooks. Other times they have made up rumors and claim it came from other papers. For instance: 2 years ago, they said there was a rumor, even went as far as saying a deal was imminent from a local paper involving Joe Thornton and Florida's 1st round, #1 overall pick in 2002 (Jay Bouwmeester after a trade). Spectors reported it from 2 local papers in Florida and Boston and both papers had rebuffed publishing such a rumor. I once sent an email to one of those papers and said they were considering legal action but never pursued.
