The other board i post on is also used by eklund. The guy in his whole time on board, has never predicted one correct rumor, and he pretty much has ruined that board with his speculation.

He lacks the basic integrity to become credible in his field. He does a disservice to many hardworking news journalist out there, and has become apart of the growing problem of "everyman" news journalist in the digital age.

As a fan i like the rumors, its fun to speculate and even to fantasize.

But as a professional whose job has been mitigated by the disinformation at our fingertips by people who bring no credibility to the field, it angers me and disturbs me.

Speaking of no integrity: After the Heatley to Minnesota trade went down, I checked to see if Eklund had put anything up about it. Eklund writes, "Checking into Heatley for Havlat rumors." Soon after he writes, "Yes, Bob MacKenzie confirms." Of course, MacKenzie had confirmed it before Eklund even posted it.

This is a Dwayne special (I refuse to associate one of my favorite players when I was a kid, Pelle Eklund, to that ****er). He uses this technique to 'break' 90% of the 2.3% of the rumors he 'gets right'.

Oh, and he talks to people alright. Tim freaking Pannachio is his major source.

He started his illustrious career breaking inside news on our beloved hockey team on Flyersphans.com a lockout ago because he was supposed to work for the Flyers in the damn ticket booth or something. This was before he discovered blogging. He was outed on that board so many damned times that he is completely and rightfully reviled on that board. He uses the handle EvanAllStarMe or something on that board currently and does actually post. In fact, he started a thread there recently saying we were going to trade Bob to the Yotes in return for Ekman-Larsson.

HE. IS. A. FRAUD.

all i said is he talks to credible people, what he does with that information is his business. And business is booming.

Tonight on Sports Final on NBC10 reported, Flyers keeping eye on Stamkos negotiations w/ tampa, but fallback play is to sign Chris Drury.
http://twitter.com/howardeskin/status/90277469726310400

@howardeskin
As far as earlier tweet.. Chris Drury played with Danny B at buffalo. Played well together.
http://twitter.com/howardeskin/status/90307128648155136

I didn't see it, but Eskin has been right about the Flyers in the past. I also thought Drury had a severe career-threatening injury that prompted him to consider filing a grievance when he was being bought out.

Please remember that this is an Eklund source but it's an interesting read.

Just vague enough to give everyone hope. Resolution could mean an extension, or a trade, or an offer sheet.

Eklund stinks, but I'm curious to see what happens with Stammer. If he re-signs it kinda proves Eklund is only looking for hits.

He will probably re-sign but I still enjoy the speculation. If he doesn't the package sent in return will be huge.

Well I have had it and to make it bearable you just have to add more pepper than salt. However I have a dish I would like to serve you cold. Interested?

ah i see.

I have to agree, i think (if nothing else) what we can take away from the offseason is that Stamkos will not remain in TB forever...

definitely an important realization with how long-contracts are so popular (and cap-hit friendly)

Im bored with all the stamkos trade chatter and i don't know if we should give up all that would be needed to get him. Im actually more interested in next years UFA crop than this years. The Flyers will definitively be trying to get younger on the back end and possibly two big named defense man could become UFA's out of Nashville.

If you take into account we do get a new CBA and still have the cap at around where it is now, we will have over 17 million to sign our players. Now if the new CBA gives us a bonus cushion the flyers could have over 21 million in cap space. We could also see a rise on the cap to about 66 million(lower estimation if it does increase instead of salary rollbacks like the last CBA) would give us around 23-24 million to spend to the limit.

This team could really be looking to make a big splash in nexts years free agency. Say we let Carle go and keep Coburn for 4 milion. then we sign Voracek around 3.5 if he has a big year and JVR for around giroux money 3.75. We would have around 12-13 million to land Weber and maybe another high end player. I am really really excited about how this team will look next offseason! and not to concerned about Stamkos anymore

Not 12 hours before Carter was traded I told my friend "Carter isn't going anywhere" when he said he had heard Carter might be traded.
