Eklund "Lifts" from Hammond

Eklund posts this afternoon about the Kings search for another defenseman. He further quotes an "LA Source" but, for obvious reasons, does not name this person. Now know he does things like this all the time but he actually lifted his "information" from none other than Rich Hammond. Now go ahead and quote someone else but give credit where credit is due. I just want to make sure, as readers, that we can differentiate between Eklunds imaginary "sources". Nice work, Ek!

From Eklund:
"A lot going on today, but so far the most solid is the fact that the LA Kings are shopping for a veteran d-man. You need to look no further than what they did last year when they signed Brad Stuart and moved him at the deadline to know what they are thinking here...

According to an LA source: "Anaheim's Mathieu Schneider is the one the Kings are seriously considering. Other names under consideration would be San Jose's Kyle McLaren, Florida's Karlis Skrastins, Nashville's Greg de Vries, St. Louis' Jay McKee and Pittsburgh's Darryl Sydor. There's one more name out there that might surface as a real option in the next couple days, but as always these talks are pretty fluid.""

Easy now: "If you don't like him [Eklund] and/or what he does, don't go into a thread and rant about it. That will only get you an infraction and banned from the thread."

I respect the policies of HF and staff. I never saw that notice. However there is a difference of not liking him ranting about that and simply pointing out a case of theft.

I was never a big fan of this. He puts himself out there willingly and probably likes the negative comments as much as the good. Bad publicity is better than no publicity right?

If Dean Lombardi happened to be a member of HF...would that mean we could no longer criticize him??

If you're talking about Eklund, I'm pretty sure his user name is Eklund.

Maybe you think its ok for Eklund to steal information from the Kings beat writer and not have the decency to source him but I most certainly don't.

What Eklund just did is illegal.

Eklund does not have the right to steal.

Unless Rich Hammond copyrights his blog posts, what he did isn't illegal. Unethical, sure, but he's not in a tremendously ethical line of work to begin with.

Good point about copyrights. I have no idea if a newspaper blog counts or not. At the very least it is incredibly unethical. If he had been in my class he would have just failed.

Well, Hammond has appeared on the Hockeys Future Podcast. They go to him for analysis on the Kings. HF does know who Rich Hammond is.

Spector has the same info from Hammond and Hammond is mentioned in the first sentence. This kind of stuff taints all future reports from "a source" on that site. For me Baloney was only suspected before this, now it's confirmed. I just won't be buzzin' cousin.

I wouldn't be surprised if Eklund is some sort of "special sponsor" to this site. Whenever someone questions Eklund the posts will be deleted, closed, users banned, etc.
