It HAD to be the Avs deal.

Our great blogger Adrian Dater has a new man-crush on Eklund and broke the news of a trade before it happened. I'm sure he sent the news over to Eklund as well for his website.

If we have at least three trades tonight (excluding Winnik), I'll wear an Eklund avatar until the season starts.

You know, I've started to realize something... If EVERY single one of Eklunds rumours were actually true, every player in the league would have been traded 10 fold

If I was Eklund I would post that every day given this time of year and the fact that some suckers will take it seriously and provide free advertising.

You are right. A car salesman at least has the courtesy of not hiding behind a pseudonym while lying to its customers directly in their face.

The guy has ZERO credibility, and I have never ever heard of him actually being THE GUY who breaks a story... EVER.

This is the same guy who announced on Sportsnet Deadline day that Ryan Smyth had resigned with Edmonton, and 30 seconds later Bob Mackenzie is reporting that he's been traded.

There was one time when James Duthie was on the Team1040 afternoon show with Pratt and Taylor and they were having one of their 'TSN vs Sportsnet' sessions and I remember Taylor making a joke about something TSN had done and all Duthie said was "Yeah, how did that Eklund thing work out".

I can't believe his links are allowed to be posted here as 'Rumours', and yet if I blatantly make up a trade rumour, the thread would get locked.

That is a bold proposition. I can't imagine having an Eklund avatar. That would like ruin your online life and stuff. People would laugh at you and you would be like "I can't believe Eklund came through with the goods on those trades"!

Unless that salesman is a Toyota dealer. Then all bets are off.

And this is not to defend Eklund, as I stopped going to that site 2 years ago, he did break the Byfuglien to atlanta deal as far as I'm concerned. (I did check the site as I heard of that trade as someone used Eklund as the source who broke it, and after it was done I checked that site and he was right).

I know I was being a smartass earlier but the thing I find odd is that you can post an Eklund rumor and people can discuss it. Cool no problem, just ignore it if you want. Then you can put up whatever ridiculous trade proposal you can dream up on this board for discussion as well. But then if somebody posts an unsubstantiated rumor from an "unvetted source" the thread is locked as if that information is any less useful than discussing the Kaberle for Brown proposal some moron dreamed up or the inordinate amount of other ridiculous ideas people come up with. But then if you put the same stupid ass rumor as a proposal that is some how ok? The way they choose to draw a line in the sand around here with topics is very odd.

Or we could all just be honest with ourselves and admit that we find it entertaining on some level or another (regardless if you believe him). To be honest, the guy has come up with a pretty clever idea and he has got plenty of people interested in checking his site as evidenced by the amount of threads started on here from his content and the ensuing discussions.
