I think its pretty obvious for us who have followed code for a while that he is 100% BS. He isn't even close 95% of the time.

He got the Marchment trade? Really. What did he say, that Marchment would be moved? Big Suprise...

Whats funny with the guys at hockeynation who is behind Code is that their knowledge of the game is so darn poor. Interesting to see allot of them on this thread reporting that Code "called" stuff he didn't even do...

Overall the rumors made up at HN are so off that its more likely to find a rumor that comes true at Slam if that place is still around.
Then tell me why the guy called the Boyton signing yesterday with the same exact figures that came out today?

Exactly. Interjecting so much of yourself personally into the news you are reporting isn't professional journalism. It wears on the people who tune in, and causes many to tune out.

I really don't have a great opinion on Eklund. Just seems like he reports every rumor he hears, which isn't the greatest thing to do. There are guys out there who does the same thing and I guess they are villified too Strachan and Brooks

Go to bed kiddo. Code have wrote that he works around agents. Thats his own words. Still he have silly reports about all players in the league. Could you explain that to me?

If you are older then 15 you would know that players have diffrent agents.

And please don't tell me one agent knows the exact numbers what another player are negotiating for or what Glen Sather plans for example. He have made numerous reports that teams plans to make a pitch for diffrent players ect.

Problem with this? The CBA forbids contract talks until after Jan. And, the Isles specifically gave Parrish a one-year deal because they plan to let him test UFA waters.

This Code fellow, despite his rep on the interent, is not only completely full of BS, he doesn't have the slightest clue about what might or might not go down.
Sorry but if you are a kid from HN stop the BS. Do it for free if you think its fun, charging people for it is illigal.

Edit: The quote that "NYI are negotiating with Parrish" is from code and was made Sep 29 2005, 10:39 PM. The thread title is "About the Ilya rumors to New York."(Code says the deal fell through because Atlanta wanted Lundqvist instead of Montoya included in the deal.... )

When you make a misstake like you did with Parrish its time to shut down. When a guy who supposedly works with a agent reports that a player is renegotiating his contract and it can be done soon 3 month before they even are allowed to negotiate its just to much.

This board is for trade rumors. If the media, including Eklund, reports a rumor post about it here. If you want to discuss the media, it belongs on the NHL Talk Board.
