It's Eklund who does it.

They inquire about a player or are told a player is available after that player is offered to them/another team.

Wow...that surprises me. It seemed to be common knowledge here in STL that the Lauries were actively trying to sell the franchise, and that they wanted to dump Pronger to lower the salary burden on the incoming regime. There are probably posters on the Blues board that can go into much more detail on the situation...but I seem to remember Pronger's availability was all but advertised on billboards.

Would Eklund be closer or further than "Telepathy?"

At some point, the number of proposals reaches a critical mass where some of them just * happen *.

Another Flyers poster and I proposed Handzus for Calder before it happened. I even joked, "This makes total sense, but I doubt Clarke would ever trade a 6'5" center for a 5'10" winger."

Did not know this. Thanks
