Eklund again

Eklund is now making up stuff that the Rangers want to trade Dubinsky for Souray and a struggling third liner Cogliano. They are insisting on trading Redden, but would do it if he was not taken by Edmonton.

He's claiming that "many" people are calling him "this morning".

Gawd, can he at least make it believable?! Redden would get called up and go through 50% waivers just to get traded? The Rangers will risk that? Really?

And all his trade rumors are badly biased against the Rangers. It's very clear that he hates the Rangers, which is why he always expects us to give up an arm and a leg.

I remember after the Tyutin for Zherdev deal, he claimed that it's not over and the Rangers will be sending a major player back. Why did he claim that? Because it simply didn't make sense to him otherwise. He drops the value of Ranger players by a factor of 5, then thinks trades don't make sense.

And finally, "many" people are calling him? Seriously? So when a team is looking to make a trade, the first thing they do is send their assistant GM to call Eklund? And then just to make sure that the Assistant GM wasn't simply drunk, they also make sure to have the Director of Player Personnel as well as the team President also call to confirm.

And just for the hell of it, they release their negotiating strategy to him, fully knowing he'll publish it. ("Listen, Ek, we are insisting that Edmonton takes Redden because we want to get rid of him, but dude, go write in your uber-reliable column that we'll do it even without Redden. The credibility of your column is more important to us than the welfare of our franchise!")

Nobody, not the NY Times, not the NY Post, nobody gets "many" sources because "many" people simply don't know what their team will do. It's not as if there's a meeting with 50 people to vote on the next trade.

The guy has no clue. Lie to us, but at least lie believably!

Question: What do you expect to see when you visit his site? Do you enjoy what he provides? If not, why do you go to his site?

Anyone who has followed this speculator for any period of time knows that his rumors never come to fruition.

He is not worth following. He has no sources.

Now he has reported some correct but it's like it pops in his head and he states it as fact. Even a blind squirrell finds a nut every once in awhile

I was laughing when read that rumor. Possibly the worst rumor he has ever placed the Rangers in. Are we supposed to believe the Flames would trade their captain, and only superstar on offense, for Brandon Dubinsky?
