It's eklund, and hilarious that he can be so sure (100%!) and so vague at the same time, but here ya go, from his twitter:

https://twitter.com/#!/Eklund/status/203750503203610625

You wont believe the goalie who i was just told is now 100% certain he will be traded at the draft. Cant say yet, but wow.


and:

https://twitter.com/#!/Eklund/status/203752385259126784

Promised him i would keep it quiet for a few weeks, but he one the best in the game without question. And no one else is talking about him.


he's going with 100% but not an E5 so I don't know how much we can trust this

Yea right, 100% sure my ass. Does he really expect a GM to pull off a deal if the team doesn't get what they're asking? No GM in the league is going to trade top-end goalie only for the sake of trading him, if they're getting bad offers.

The interesting thing about this is that if you look at the wording it is saying that the goalie is 100% certain he will be traded.

It's Eklund. His assurance is as meaningful as Paris Hilton's contributions to society. Stop feeding the trolls (Eklund).

Not being talked about seems to rule out thomas, and luongo.

The only top goaltenders who aren't being talked about are Lundqvist and Rinne

So it'll be someone really unknown in some parts but he's just hyped it up to make it look good.

I'm guessing it'll be Bernier or Schneider.

Normally I dont pay any attention to rumours from Eklund. I have thought that there was a high possibility that some real big name goalies get moved this summer though myself.

Makes sense for Boston to move Thomas for some assets while they can before he retires because they have Rask.

Makes sense for Calgary to move Kipper before his value goes down and also because they are in dire need of a full rebuild.

Also being a Pens fan I would love to see this be Fleury whos moved, not many Pens fans feel this but I dont think Fleury is consistent enough for deep runs in the playoffs every year and thats what the Pens are built for right now. Also I'm sure Shero would never move Fleury unless he had a hell of a plan in place to put a real good goalie back between the pipes.

Corey Crawford? I don't think he's one of the best, obviously, but you don't know what Eklund thinks.

If this rumour was true...Price is one that i'd believe. Some Habs fans like Luongo so who knows?

Only way Pens trade MAF is if Rinne or Quick are coming our way.

MAF will not be moved. The Pens have nothing behind him.
