You had me until I read who wrote this blurb, pure gossip by this dude all the time. Has he ever been close to being right. I can't recall off the top of my head if he has, so someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

Maybe since I blowing CW off, he might just be right. Wouldn't that be grand? Not likely though.

Yeah, "Shooter" isn't my favorite trusted source, but he's not alone in this prediction, so maybe there's something to it.

"expected" -- I like to play mad-libs with his stuff... "expected by ____" : my dog, a little bird, people who are really hopeful he signs soon.

Sounds like Nate and Shooter have been listening to the same little birdee whislting in their ears. It's easy to sound prophetic if your timing is right - it seems reasonable to expect both Gaborik and Dupuis to be signed and playing soon.

Exactly. It only made/makes sense to assume that after Risebrough won back public opinion on the Gaborik issue by going public with his (Kariya-like) offer that things would come to a close in a matter of 2-3 weeks if Maid Marian is a reasonable fellow.

And if that failed, then it makes the most sense to believe both sides would not agree until after the season is over.

Predicting Gaborik would sign "shortly" subsequent to Risebrough's public divulgence was and continues to clearly be the safest bet.

Speaking for myself, it's nothing personal.

Yet if you have no proof or extensive track record, I don't see how you or anyone else can expect anyone to believe claims of insider info. That's all I would say on the matter.

You were warned you would be banned if you continued making statements you couldn't corroborate.

You've violated that warning twice since you were warned. As a result you are banned permanantly from this site until you either (a) comply with the request or (b) pledge to make no further of mention of inside contacts you can't verify. If you wish to use this site again, you will have to email me at webmaster@hockeysfuture.com
