And to top it off most of us act like rookie fans much of the time.

We beach and moan about a player, Hemsky for example then complain he is hard to trade. How about the fans doing their share, play them up not down. Doh. Though a GM would be foolish to make a decision based on some forum of pretend people I would bet they have their people check ALL sources looking for a feel of what a player brings. Guaranteed somebody reads this stuff. Might be one of the media people that teams own or maybe they have someone dedicated to scouring the net for tidbits. We're talking millions of dollars of deals so they do do-diligence.
