Lets face facts, when trades occur, it is usually kept under lock and key until the news has been broken to the players. Even at the trade deadline, while we know who is likely available and who is chasing those players - we have no real idea of what will be coming back in the trade or which team in the end will come down with the soon to be UFA.

For example the last two trades (Mayers and Mason) there was no media leak. It was shocking to everyone. (While fans figured Mason was available - no one broke the deal ahead of time - which is what often happens).

From a personall stand point, I don't like Rumor mongering. Because for the most part it is bogus.
Eklund puts any info he hears out there and uses a rating system to let you know how much to take from each rumor, if you choose to ignore the system and lump everything he posts in as big time rumors that is your own stupidity.

Hears from who? Who is passing on this info to him? E3 Spezza to St. Louis. Where does this come from? It isn't coming from Murray who has said many many times that Spezza isn't available and it sure as hell isn't coming from the Blues (who keep their business quiet). So who is putting it out there?

This is bogus..... Spezza sure isn't being shopped after signing a long term deal in Ottawa.

Using a rating system to put out rumors you know aren't true doesn't make it right. As for my own stupidity....

If you want to watch a player that tries to be like Ovechkin but then loses the puck at the red line, be my guest.
