Got It Right

Just to give credit where credit is due...

Eklund made the true prediction that the Vancouver Canucks would make a trade with the Florida Panthers today. He is often maligned on these pages, but I feel it is only fair that he get his kudos when due.

After all all I seem to read is how he has a 2% prediction accuracy.

... He did make a second predictiion that the Canucks were then going to go after Turris... Will he be shooting 50% or 100% today...

Considering Turris has been practicing in B.C all this time... it may very well come true.

You throw enough **** at the wall, eventually something will stick. Also, 'a trade between VAN and FLO' isn't really hitting the nail on the head when there are no details.

I'll be sure to make a thread every time Mackenzie or Dreger is correct, too.

Yeah, Eklund will have to break about 20 more trades in the next 2 years to earn back the deficit of credibility he has created for himself. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Let's give Eklund some props after nailing one out of every eighty rumors.

I think I'll give the credit to guys that actually know their hockey like TSN or for Wild fans, Russo at Startribune.

In related news. I threw a bucket of rocks at a target today, and one of them hit the bullseye.

I'm the most accurate archer in the world.

Closed, if you want to talk credit, put it in the trade thread, we don't need a separate thread for this.
