Eagle to Land?? (rumour)

your boy eklund is at it again.

I wouldn't mind Eagle at 500k, dude can still play, but the rumour just makes no sense to me. I feel like Valiquette as the backup is set in stone.....maybe I'm wrong, Maybe Slats wants a guy he knows can start 20 games.


(side note- I have a dvorak jersey...if we sign eagle, i'm putting his name on it...#20.....i love the guy, his attitude, and his antics)

i mean come on...its Eklund- anyone could predict that the Rangers are going after a veteran backup for Henrik- Many people on this very board have talked about this- Eklund just took it to heart and decided to stick one of the goaltenders there to make people talk

Ed Belfour is the worst choice for back up goaltender.He treats his fellow goaltender like crap.I'm sure the Rangers are going to bring in Belfour to make Lundqvist's life miserable.Belfour doesn't want to screw around with the NYPD after his previous arrests in Dallas and Miami.The boys in blue will **** him up and leave him where they find him.Belfour can't handle his booze.Alex Auld got injured in bar incident involving Belfour last season

Eklund is just getting ridiculous, I'm sure he's going to predict that the Rangers will bring Andy Moog or Tom Barasso out of retirement to be the new backstop behind Henrik. I wish people would just stop posting every obsurd rumor that he circulates.

Everyone here should come to my house, but before they do write down the name of an available goaltender and and over priced defenseman.

I'll break out a few beers and we'll dump all the names into a hat, then pick out two and come up with a trade or a signing. I guarantee you 9 times out of 10 our names will be a better fit then what Eklund comes up with.

Who's in?

Eklund is our boy unfortunatly (as in he's a Flyers fan), but we don't want him.

The last thing the Rangers need is Belfour

MAkes much more sense to me than Belfour... at the very least I'll have the nostalgic heart pinch when they show him on the bench... Ah good times.
And for the record, if I hear "your boy Eklund" again I will probably slit my wrists.

If people enjoy these discussions, I think we need a thread just for Eklund rumors. If not, we might as well just close this. Thoughts?

I agree. Its hard enough finding decent content in the dog days of summer without having to wade through 3-4 Wash-up to NYR E4s.

Howabout we just place a moratorium on posting any Eklund rumors, since clearly they are bunk. As HBNYC said, we'd be better off just making them up ourseles. Or we could get JOrts to do it.

relax people, the "your boy eklund" is sarcasm, and im gonna keep saying it because i think its hilarious how everyone hates this guy. he's an entertainer, he makes his living creating rumours that have a small small small grain of truth to them.

give him a break, he's your boy.

I personally hate him not only because he spreads ignorance, but more because he wants to be considered a professional writer.

If he wants to be a writer, he has to act like one

i don't think he ever insinuated that he wants ot be considered a pro writer, he knows hes a blogger. i think he wants ot be king of the bloggers though. anyway, all these threads always end up becoming eklund hate fests
