He stole a lot of his **** from the legit people and never credited them

He "broke" the story of Prucha signing a deal with the Coyotes 1 months after it happened. When I called him out on it he deleted it right away from his Twitter updates.

If this trade does go down, the outcome will be very interesting. On one level, hard to imagine Kessel going within division for anything more less than a significant overpayment. But, Burke is not an overpay kind of guy and you rarely get fair value when you trade this type of asset.

I'm also finding it hard to figure out what Boston will want. A contender like the Bruins might want vets, but they are so far against the cap they might want cheap young kids.

Anyway, I still have a slight leaning toward thinking he'll wind up in Nashville instead of Toronto. But, I think either city makes a ton of a sense for a deal.
I seem to remember hearing that Toronto (before or after burke, cant remember) offered a package to Anaheim where their 1st was Top 5 protected. But that could have just been BS, take it for what it is. I had never seen this top 5 protected until after this was reported.

if this deal dose happen i hope tlusty or kulemin are not involved if burke found a way to make tjis trade without giving up one or both these players i'm happy.

If there is a three way deal with the NYR giving up dubinsky to boston, toronto is taking on another bigger contract from boston.

When Marek and Dreger say the deal is done, it's just a matter of what goes the other way, I assume they mean that the Leafs and Kessel have reached a deal on a contract? I think we all know that the Leafs and Bruins have been trying to figure out what goes the other way for the last 5-7 days.

wow, he broke that. people need to stop referencing that guy. everything he puts up is always posted here, and the he puts it up. Its a total load of BS. Eklund probably started a second site to increase his revenue.

That's my theory on who that guy is. He's pretty arrogant when the predictions he makes comes true.

he did not "break" it. He put it, giving us more details on trade that tsn broke.

Honestly your hate on this guy is funny, he is much more credible then eklund.

If the cost for Kessel is 2 1sts and a 2nd, Leaf Nation is going to have a collective conniption.

And that's just for the right to overpay him on a long term contract based off of a good year.

if the deal is as reported, its a decent trade for both teams.

next years draft is terrible, so its basically a first + 2nd for him.

Bruins fans will be mad that their GM failed to sign 21-year old sniper and rather set his sights on signing Derek Morris.

I guess any sense of unbiased reporting goes out the window when Dreger and the Leafs are involved. LOL

After 40+ years of watching this rerun its nearly impossible to imagine a scenario that leads to a conniption. I'm pretty sure i've seen it all.
