heh, he is pandering to the masses to get hits on hockeybuzz.

He has come up with some credible stuff in the past, but lately its been poo like eklund.

(i.e. Kings approached simmonds and asked to change his number)..its the stuff like this they spew because they were feeling like they were being outscooped by Helene lol. (which all of them were wrong in the end.)

Maybe so.

He also loves to take penalties. But, I know he wasn't that bad in the playoffs. But, I still don't like him. No where near this teams. Thanks.

Don't forget that it was Nothelen that said it was 98% certain that Kovalchuk was signing with LA.

Barry is no more credible than anyone else in the twitter/internet age. The only people with any credibility are the ones that wait until the deals are done before reporting them. Where the hell is the fun in that?

This is just a message board for hockey fans. It is not the gospel, if you want that, then just hang out on TSN and NHL.com for when the deals are done.

Hartnell would be a great fit, whether he's an ******* or not.

How is a 3rd liner who makes $4M/yr, takes a ton of bad penalties and is a locker room cancer a great fit?

Locker room cancer?

And he's a top 6 forward all the way.

Hartnell has been the captain on every team he's ever played for as far back as I can recall, not counting the Flyers, including pre-NHL. How is he a locker room cancer. I'd like to see proof of that.

I'd also debate the number of bad penalties he takes. He does take some, not saying he's perfect, but a ton is a bit much.

He had a bad year offensively this year, but is usually good to approach 25 goals a season and is just one year removed from a 30 goal season. He is a bit pricy at $4 mill/per, but I'd take the chance on him. Be a great replacement for Ponikarovsky after this year.

Dean could have signed him last year. Why would he lose assets and admit to a mistake a year later?

Gaborik wouldn't come cheap either. Simmonds, Brown, and/or Johnson would be the starting point.

Me thinks the forward from the East the Kings will acquire will be Ryan Malone.

I still don't get why Tampa would trade him. They have a nice looking roster with him and they still have almost $14 million available for their final 3 roster spots.

I don't know what the Kings could offer that would entice them. Tampa should be going after Kaberle or Niemi.

I understand all that but it's not like anyone is clicking on HIS website to read this stuff, he just goes on to LGK and posts it there, where people will read it regardless. And I could understand if he actually named players, but to say "there may be a trade coming up" with no other info is completely pointless.

I'm on the fence about him. I like him, but feel like he leaves me wanting and expecting a lot more. Would depend on the asking price I guess.

True, but if he really does have "sources" in the organization, they will stop talking to him if he names names. Just like with the Greene story, he told everyone that there was bad news coming and he couldn't announce it yet. Once he named Greene as the injured party, it was confirmed by the team.

I'm sure CBGB loves being able to put out vague stories and watch everyone scramble to guess what he is talking about. It also drives people to the website and puts money in his pocket. Isn't that the point of free enterprise? If people didn't love this kind of ****, hockeybuzz wouldn't be the cash cow that it is and "reality" TV would have ended a long time ago.


Of course we could just be getting these very insight full tweets from the "insiders":

I like malone and all, but im sketchy on trading for him on that contract. I guess he will give you 20-25 goals, and 50 points while avg 73 games/season.

I guess do people think he is worth a 4.5 mill caphit for the next 5 years? Personally, I dont.

You'd be a locker room cancer if your teammate ****ed your wife.
