Move Hockey Buzz to the invalid list...add LA Times to invalid list as well... The latter doesn't even care if there's a hockey team in the area or not...

Valid source:
blog.dispatch.com/cbj

It's Puckrakers, the Columbus Dispatch blog. They are a credible source as the Dispatch is Columbus's newspaper and they have part ownership in the team. Portzline has personal access (text message, phone, personal interviews) to players, coaches, and GM's. Just be wary of speculatory posts because it has recently been off. It is valid, though, because it can put up exclusive quotes and is usually the first to break Jackets news.

NESN and Boston.com are two very valid sources for Boston. Murph and Haggs (I forget which works for which media source, not even sure if they work for Boston.com and NESN) are reliable on the Bruins boards too. They were the first ones to mention the signing of Derek Morris last season and the Horton trade a month or so ago. I want to say they were the first with other moves for Boston but I just can't think of any at the moment.

Some of the sources in the valid list are indeed valid, but should probably have a * next to their name because they can post wildly inaccurate stuff as bonafide fact (Brooks, RDS, HockeyBuzz jump to mind).

These are valid sources in terms of confirmed trades, signings etc. not rumors.

True some of them post wild rumors but I consider them valid when a trade is confirmed, or a signing is confirmed.

Yeah, Strick can be listed as a solid Blues source: http://twitter.com/andystrickland

Another source is the Blues beat writer, Jeremy Rutherford: http://twitter.com/jprutherford

Strick is usually the one who gets the latest Blues news first though.

I think Aaron Portzline, who seems to be the lead reporter on Puck-Rakers, sometimes posts things on his Twitter account before they hit Puck-Rakers, so it could be a good place to look for a giveaway should something be about to go down with the Jackets. I think the rumored Bieksa/Filatov deal was posted there first...while that hasn't happened (yet), it was later confirmed on the Dispatch's blog that the CBJ & Canucks were talking.

Yeah, JR is more reliable because he doesn't post anything until it's 100% confirmed. Strickland is usually first but sometimes wrong because he jumps the gun.

http://mainehockeyjournal.com/ (Maine Hockey Journal--mostly for AHL/Pirates news/Sabres prospects)
http://www.sabresprospects.com/ (for Sabres prospect signings)


Unfortunately, there aren't any good sources for breaking news, which is why virtually anything involving the Sabres takes a while to break and we end up waiting days for cap numbers for Sabres signings.

general rule of thumb:
journalist affiliated with real print media (or online version) = good.
twitter feed (unless that of a journalist) = bad.
blog or fansite where anyone can write an article = bad.

i followed the trade deadline closely this year and found that almost everything was broken by a local beatwriter first, and then the anonymous twitter junkies followed.
