Since when can you quote entire articles from someone else's site like this? I thought there were rules about this sort of thing. If you guys are going to be reading and talking about it, he deserves the traffic.

Mods?

I thought the same thing. Eklund said "A top six forward on a team with multiple 20 goal scorers is very different than a top six forward on the Islanders, Coyotes, or Jets."

Umm is he just talking out of his ass? Isles had FIVE 20 goal scorers (3 had 29 or more). Thats 5 of the top 6. And this doesn't include okposo who missed most of the season.

Gotta love eklund.

LOL. Hawks are NOT going to put together an offer-sheet for Stamkos and I highly doubt we're going to trade for Parise... he'd cost too much.

If it was possible, I'd put all my vCash on it (I know, I know... big deal ). But if either of those things happened, I'd be absolutely shocked.

Looks like we know how he gets his rumours. His "sources" are probably just guys he follows on Twitter and he takes their scoop and publishes it in his blog the minute it comes out.

It wouldn't be the first time he leeched off an independent source.

of course its much easier to get Parise to play for the Rangers because he wouldn't have to move into a new house.

Solid reasoning right there.

I don't know why the leafs would be interested in parise, yeah he's parise, but we're looking for a #1 center, not to have two top line wingers and a 35pt center in between them... good thing it's eklund, and I don't have to care for more than 2 minutes.

edit: and he has a "gut" feeling the leafs will get richards... sheesh, I know he's 85% likely to be a ranger.

lol, The Devils are willing to trade Parise to the Rangers because it is more convenient for him so he doesn't have to relocate to a new house? This is gold.

Heres the thread where all the fans from different fanbase unite and bash Eklund all together.

HFboards in unity for the first time!

So Eklund has Parise going to one of 7 (8?) potential teams (COL, VAN, CHI, NYR, all of Eastern Canada, which to him probably includes WIN as a way of covering his ass). I have never been more confident that the Devils will re-sign ZP longterm than I am right now.

Just saying. The guy deserves the traffic from all of you haters that love talking about him so much.

I seriously don't understand the hate he gets. He has legitimately broken several trades, signings, etc. It seems people have no grasp of the concept of what a rumour is. Just because trades aren't finalized, that doesn't mean people weren't kicking tires and discussions weren't happening. And sure, he gets silly and dramatic - but clearly it works. It keeps all of you monkeys coming back for more.

I wouldn't say that Eklund has "broken" a trade... but rather that he's been right on several interested teams. He knew Mike Richards was in play, he was right about several other teams having interest and then signing/trading for that player in the past few years.

I don't remember him ever say "I'm hearing that Team A is interested in Player X for Player Y and Z" or anything along those lines and it was correct.

I agree on both points. Unless StanBow has fooled everybody and makes a play for Stamkos (heck the Hawks have so much good talent they could actually afford losing four first rd picks and not hurt the farm system) or Parise, I expect the Hawks to focus on filling out the final two lines with solid players.
